The Weekend Before A Show...

is usually one of the busiest times for Nana Sadie Rose but not so much this weekend.

I'm truly sorry to make anyone worry, it was never my intention. My "procedure" is really apparently pretty much a non-event, but since I've never had one, I'm a bit on edge about it. I have a "new" diagnosis (which is pretty common, I guess, in women, especially with other rheumatic-type illnesses). It's called sacroiliitis.

I'll be having an ESI injection tomorrow. It's all outpatient, so can't be too terribly bad, right? But not to worry if I don't get right back to you, as I'll be a touch wacky in the head from the pain pill I've been told to take ahead of time. I'll get online as soon as I can, okay? Probably by tomorrow evening...

However, this PITA (literally!) has indeed slowed down the works in this household. Over the past week I've been able to make a few Sundry Cases and a couple of checkbooks...
but nowhere near what I usually produce. It's been a challenge to stand...sit...lie down...walk...sleep - oh, yes, that's why I have to have this procedure, because I really can't do very much at all!!
I have decided that this year's show will just have to be all about the orders, not so much about the "cash and carry sales" for once. But I do hope to see you at the Star City Cat Show next weekend!

I've been knitting some, too...somehow using my right "pedal foot" at the sewing machine really aggravates sacroiliitis. But sitting with my legs elevated and straight out isn't nearly as bad. As a result, I've made a couple more mini socks for the Sock Summit exchange:
#17 and 18 made from the yarn Chris dyed and sent me a couple of years ago...

I've also turned the heel on the second Double Bubble sock, but since you've seen one of those completed already, I won't bore you with another photo of that.

Instead, I'll show you what else I've been able to do (albeit for shorter periods of time than someone would like):

I'm curled up in my Mommie's lap. Even if it IS in the 80s outside

Hope tomorrow goes well!

Those wee socks are cute. :)

I hope you're all done with the procedure and it went swimmingly and pain free!

Don't feel badly about your "non event", it IS an event and it's the unknown part that's scary. I feel the same way about asking for good thoughts on my tests last week. And just think what might have happened without them?

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
