this is the current block I am working on for my Love Letters, this I have done more since this post, I am about 3/4 done.

I know I am sporadic on my posts but I was down for a couple of weeks with sever back pain, I know that allot of people have suffered with this but man do you ever feel disabled. I am so lucky I have my man here to help me! I feel for those that only have themselves.  I am catching up on some swaps that I could not work on due to not being able to cut. but was able to applique in my chair.

I was  lucky my applique had been prepped. I would applique a little and fall asleep in my chair, wake up and applique a little more and then fall asleep again. It was very therapeutic, I wish my honey had taken a picture cause I had Nosey on one side and the applique on the other, she would not leave me all the time I was sick, now she is glad to be back in her tree sleeping angelically
