I made this table runner for a niece that was getting married. I also designed the pattern.

Yarnwench's Survival Page!

Over the last 7 years or so I've developed stenololisthosis in my neck and the lumbar region of my back which is now causing excruciating pain every day unless I take LOTS of pain medication. My doctor and I are trying to figure out what is wrong as now the pain is in my pelvic area and is so bad I can only walk a few steps. But, now that I'm a SP I'm sure I'll get the support (besides the support of my dh who is my main caregiver and absolutely wonderful) I need.
