Okay… it’s ON! I started quilting my squid. It’s about time too ~ it’s been sitting on a table in my sewing room looking at me for months now.
I was inspired a great deal at the last PMQG meeting! I have a long list of notions I want (need) to get, and again I saw some amazing quilts ~ my favorite being Jill’s monochromatic quilt – it was fantastic!
So, I spray basted this quilt. The back is solid Kona Coal I figure I have only a few days before the tackiness of the glue wears off, so I feel like I want to sew and sew and sew until it is finished. BUT this time I WILL take breaks. I have something called thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) from an accident that hurt my neck when I was a kid. So everytime I get tense in my shoulders, it pinches nerves down my arms (painful) and makes my hands and fingers go completely numb. I still haven’t regained feeling in my right thumb since I quilted my yellow circle quilt… hmmmm, might be time for some bodywork!
Until then, I will be at my machine (on and off with breaks of course) working on my current favorite project.
