Quilting slowed to a standstill here shortly after my last post. My ambitious plan to tame my scraps also ground to a halt. It seems it is possible to do too much ironing and cutting at a sitting. Into day two of scrap taming my elbow became very sore and grasping, pulling or lifting hurt. A touch of Quilter’s Elbow, perhaps? Clicking a mouse or typing for any length of time was also out. Hand quilting too. Humph and grump.
I have been resting the arm, and it now only aches a little bit now and then, so I am going to try some sewing again today. Yay! On the agenda are two or three more small lone stars, followed by a little bit of hand quilting on the Canada quit. And yes Mom, I will not overdo!
Because it just feels wrong to post without a picture or two, here’s a look at what I got done on the Canada quilt before the interruption.
