over 3 weeks ago, i woke up with a horrid stiff neck which eventually worked its way down to my shoulder. obviously i had slept in a position that my neck/shoulder didn’t care for. thinking that it would pass, i tried to make the best of things while babying it a bit. didn’t work.
finally, last friday, i decided that i needed to give it a break and laid aside my quilting hand-work. my hands protested, so i decided to try some machine-work instead. my shoulder didn’t protest and all was well. the only thing is, instead of grabbing a project that was “in progress”… (goodness knows i have plenty of them), i started something new. *sigh*
after hearing about the loss of a wonderful quilting friend that i’ve known for years, i had to do something while working through the sad news. knowing how much mar loved her reproduction fabrics, i fingered through my own stash of them while thinking of her. it didn’t take long for the baskets to appear. i was so thrilled for her when p & b asked if they could use her design and distribute little kits with a copy of her pattern.
a couple of days ago, i sat down and tried some hand-work again (i miss it!). the shoulder still protested, but not as loudly. let’s hope that it gets over this little hissy fit…and soon.
