How Long?

Just look at how long it's been since I got to spend a significant amount of time in my sewing room. I've snatched 10 minutes here and there, but that's it.
I plan to remedy that. I'm signed off work at the moment with a 'itis' in my hips and lower back. Hmm, I didn't know what to do with myself yesterday, I couldn't walk, I couldn't sit, I couldn't stand, I just couldn't settle all day. Today pain relief and anti inflammatory medication is working and I think pottering may be possible, so I've plan to spend a little time in my nest, hopefully I'll be able to potter in there. I did get a shock when I saw that calender though.
Speaking of calenders, here's my wavy advent, complete with extra waves since I was folded up for a year! LOL Maybe I should have had a go at pressing it before I hung it and stuffed the pockets. It's all ready for tomorrow.
Hopefully today I'll be able to do a little more to mums elephants. I still need to make some more pieced blocks, but I'll have to find the box first!
I haven't been totally idle, the knitting needles have been busy with Christmas gifts. Here is some that I can show, a lovely blue Aran scarf, I need to make it two ball of yarn longer.......
And matching wrist warmers.
I got my SSCS package away and a couple of other international packages, so now the pressure is off and I can relax for a week or two.
Time to move or I'll seize up.

Anti inflammatories are the best in that situation. Hope you feel better soon!

I'm sorry you've got an "itis". Thank goodness for anti-inflamatories. I hope they help enough to let you get in your sewing room and enjoy your down-time.
