New Starts

I managed a few minutes in front of my sewing machine yesterday. Then it became unbearable on my back, so I had to quit.
But I did manage to complete 4 middles to Lori's new quilt-along.
These are tiny 4 inch stars. Cute aren't they?

So then I went to the couch and put my feet up and started on my new body pillow cover for Easter.
Hubby thinks this looks like a scare-crow mouth. My son thinks it's a danish. Silly Boys!
Thank goodness I felt good enough to go to Applique Club last night, because the girls knew it was the beginnings of a basket.
I sure needed a woman's eye and a sit-&-stitch with some friends! They helped my confidence level and took care of my achy back.
Today I feel 90% better. So I'm off to the store, but when they ask if I want help out,  today I'm going to take it!

Take care, Brandie

What do you do for your back? Ice and Heat alternating 20 minutes? Hope you feel better soon.

Great start to Lori's quiltalong. I started mine today too.

I hope your back settles down soon. Take care.
