I'm sorry that I haven't blogged for ages. I have been flat on my back in bed for over a week, and only just managed to get out of bed yesterday. Why?? you ask . I was sitting in my chair on Aug 16 and stretched and felt a painful tug in my lower back. Hmmmmmmmmmm - better be careful I said to myself. So I walked around for about half an hour, then sat down at my computer and leaned forward - BAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My back was hit with so much pain I could hardly breathe. So I have either torn something or a disc has ruptured. Unfortunately, I can't get in to the doctor until I can get rid of the pain - hopefully in the next few days. However, then it will be all over and he will look at me like I am crazy for going to him when I don't hurt anymore. This is the 4th time since April, but this is the worst it has ever been. I won't even get into telling you about the awful withdrawal I had from the pain meds - OK, I guess I just did - lol. One mustn't loose ones sense of humor!
Obviously there are no new beads to show you, but I'll go through my archives and see if there is something in there to show. Back in a few minutes . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
OK - here are a couple of my Arbutus Tree focals, and a Beach Wedding set of beads. (I think the Arbutus tree is called the Madrona tree in the US - it grows near the ocean.) I hope I haven't shown you these before.
If I ever get back out to my studio I must make some more of the trees, and I love the Beach Wedding beads, so I will make more of those too.
Have a great rest of the week everyone!
