Thanks, girls for the well wishes. I am hopefully on the mend. My guts hate me and they like to let me know from time to time. Cat~ I am still messing with this clay. I have more ideas for a background for it. who knows. still not up to actually bending over the desk much but I did make a texture stamp today. That was about all I could handle. Michelle~ Thank you! As long as I don't require surgery I should be fine Gayle~ Sometimes it is good to let things rest. I am sure there will come a time when you want to create again. Metal clays...if only! I am sure Frenchie would pass out if I asked him for a kiln XD Caroline~ Thank you!
