Rest and Recovery

This is where you will find me for the time being
away from my Studio
mulling over new creative ideas
in our garden room

reading and recovering from an arm injury - yes

I've torn a muscle in my right arm
DH (the arm police) is keeping me very much longer
than arms length away from
the things I most love for a rest from creating
and visiting blogs
in the hope of healing without
medical intervention.

and I couldn't think of a more peaceful place to be.

So please come and stay a while, say hello and take in some 
of this beauty with me.

(from a recent Nature journal I have finished).

I surely hope it won't be too long before I can reconnect
with you all because I'm already missing the 
blogging experience,
your company
the ability to create.

Loving thoughts and thanks for visiting with me.

  3. Dearest Suzy,
    Jeff is so right in "placing" you far away from computer and beautiful materials, for you not to suddenly finding yourself sewing and doing ,to your hearts content ,but not to your arm`s content.
    This beautiful and peaceful little house is the perfect place to relax and watch your increddible nature, and garden. I wish I could sit there with you my loved friend.
    Now listen to your DH and take care of your arm, untill you are sure it is healed properly.
    With love from Dorthe, and thank you for the amazing photoes.

  26. Hello dearest Suzy, I'm so sorry that you have such arm problems. Your sweet arm police officer is right to keep you away from the computer and your studio. I know it's hard to rest when you'd much rather create and surf the internet. Your garden is a wonderful place to be and I'm sure you'll find some inspiration for future projects. Be a good girl and rest for now. We will still be here when you return.

  31. OUCH! my arms have been hurting for a month after moving landscaping block for three days, and that was bad enough! yours sounds much more painful! Your garden "shed" is beautiful! what a lovely place to relax,. If I lived near you, I would come and massage your arm for you. That is what I have been doing with my arems and it has helped quite a bit. A professional massage would be better for me! So much going on right now!
    hugs, and I hope you feel better soon, LOVE the pictures of your inspiring and beautiful!

  32. Suzy your garden is a dream! And your garden house is so so beautiful. I love it!!! It looks so fantastic. Have a nice time in your little garden house :)

  36. Dearest Suzy- I'm so so sorry that you've injured yourself-- I pray you are recovering well and resting as you should. You have a truly beautiful place to recover--

    Much love

  37. Oh no my dear Suzy.....
    I can feel your pain as two years ago I broke both my wrists.
    Believe me I understand your frustration... I thought at the time things would never come right but it does eventually.

    Make the most of your time out, by planning your Spring garden, perusing plant catalogues (one of my fave things to do). I'm sure you've got a pile of books to read - if not please sing out as I can send you a couple of goodies!

    I'm swooning over your wonderful garden room - your Jeff has a creative side too!
    The perfect place for 'time out and recuperation' make the most of it!

    Sending love and caring thoughts across the Tasman dear Suzy - I'll be in touch.
