Been Busier Than I Thought

I’m a night owl and find my mind being very active in the middle of the night. Recently, laying in bed, my head was filled with the many projects I’ve been working on. So I figured if I wrote them all down, maybe my mind will move on from that train of thought. Let’s go back to October (the last 4-5 months).

With all that, is it any wonder that I’ve aggravated arthritis & bone spurs in my left thumb? Saw the doctor this week and got a shot of cortisone and a custom brace. Will give the shot a couple of days to do its work and probably redesign how I hold the acrylic rulers when I rotary cut my fabric.

Weather is calling for back-to-back-to-back snow events. So far first event was big flakes for a short time, but can still see the grass. Well, I’ll taking it a bit easy, but will be doing some sewing. Hope you’re getting some stitching done.

Happy Stitching!

  1. You have been busy! You can use a handle for your ruler. There are handles for shower stalls that use suction cups. Pretty cheap at Home Depot. They work well.
