The Last Waves

    Well, this is a fine kettle of fish. I will be home for a while now. No, I did not lose my job, just my ability to walk normally. I have been caring for the wife for several months because she has been incapacitated with sciatica. That progressed through a few things and she is getting better, though the sciatica is not gone. I went to work last Tuesday morning and my back was hurting. I figured that I had pushed too hard at yard work and since I have a stand-up desk, that I would raise it and work out the back. By noon I realized that now I was suffering from sciatica too! I told her I caught if from her. Of course, that is absurd, but we had a laugh in our misery. My doctors appointment is Dec. 28. This is going to take a few weeks.
    Meanwhile, since now I am laid up, I get bored. So what do I do? Catch up on my tatting. I have one more set of wave earrings to do for the ladies at the mill, so now I have them done. Below you see the pair in blue. This pair is made with a chrome silver bead in the center and silver lined glass crystal seed beads. I am going to drop them off and let the 2 ladies sort out for themselves who gets what.

I think this is the last pair I need to make for a while. I like making these but there are other things I need or want to move on to doing.


  1. Oh I’m so sorry to hear you’ve ‘caught’ sciatica. Take care and concentrate on looking after yourself. Pleased to hear that Mrs ‘Tim’ is on a the mend at last. Have a restful Christmas and take care of each other. X X X

  2. Jane, thanks. Doctor appointment Thursday. Mrs. Tim is Barbara. She is better.
    Had a bit of trouble with settings. Sorry. Now it will post.

  3. Tim, I know you are a fan of the Pop a Bobbin shuttles and these earrings are perfect for the shuttles and I can see why you have done so many of them. They all look lovely.
