Hello all!

I woke up in a fine mood today. My eyes opened and (temporarily) I forgot I would be in pain the moment I tried to move.

Funny thing about backs … you really take them for granted until you can’t twist your torso. You know, just reaching your arm to the side uses the lower back.

But my problem is trying to do too much.

Yes, I was warned!

And yes, I have a warden  … uh I mean uh-husband.

But laying down is booooooooooooring!

Sitting is painful, and I’m supposed to limit it to 30 minutes at a time.

How can you make a collage in 30 minutes I ask?

Well I’ve made eleven this past week.

This one I sat too long, but I absolutely looove the results. It’s an old-new thing for me.


ThenI did this on the bed  (arghhh)
in stages, so that was good

 You Are My Heaven

This is my favorite.
I made it in the hospital.


I can almost feel the terrible pain she was in at this stage in her life, but never the hopelessness or despair. That’s what took her under.

Small posts these days, just to catch you up.

Great day from New York,


  1. Hello Kanchan
    Hope you'll feel better and better with time! Yes it's boring to stay laying down! Could you sit in a longchair? That's what I do from years. I can't stay on a chair, and I learnt to work in my longchair with many cushions and many little tables around me for computer, and everythings I need!It's better for my back!
    I pray for you, and I'm pleased to hear about you, and see your new collages
    Hugs and kisses

    1. Yes, I am either surrounded by paper sci cors and glue if I can sit. But in bed I can still bead jewelry, so I try to keep still and heal. Thank you very much for thinking of me!

  2. So sorry you are in so much, hope you are feeling better soon, the collages are beautiful. Love, Shells

    1. Thank you Shells, I think it will be a few more weeks until I can get back to work.

      I'm trying to think of it as a vacation. Better everyday, so I'm being patient.

      Thanks for being a great friend.
