Some days you plan on getting things accomplished and for some reason you end up doing little that you had planned to! I had projects lined up to work on and instead I woke up to a stiff neck and shoulder blade. I had done too much leaf blowing on Saturday, and that plus sleeping kind of weird I guess -I woke up to a very tense shoulder blade and neck ache. Holding that leaf blower is something that I should know by know needs to be done gradually – my arms are not super strong and if I do an activity that I am not used to I need to build up to it – I had already worked on it last week but for a short while –Saturday I must have been working about an hour at it. I got out the heating pad and a book and spent time off and all day yesterday babying it. It will work it’s way out and I will continue to baby it. This too shall pass – it always does – has happened before!
I did get finish the second side of the binding on the Final Frontier – one section only is purple the rest is the indigo blue – what happened was I messed up cutting one strip of the binding leaving me about 44 inches short of the blue and no more to be had. I didn’t want to start cutting all over again from the purple so I decided one corner section would be purple and the rest the blue – unique! this is a bed quilt not a show quilt – it really won’t matter.
And I moved back to the center to work my way to the right corner – this is where I picked up last night. I was able to quilt I have an electric heating pad that goes around the neck/shoulders so I was using that for a short time while I got some quilting in.
I start so many quilts and although I do finish them there are more to start – I have two flannel quilt kits to make and I have a feeling I might hop to one of them and let a few of the quilts started sit for a month – I would really like to get at least one of the flannel tops made as I have run out of room to stack this kit! It has been sitting on my cutting table for awhile now – should I start or not LOL – we will see.
We did not get frost! We only went down to 36 Saturday night although near by towns down in the valley dropped to 27 – flowers blooming for awhile still.
