Remember when I said I was on a fabric diet?
Good. Because I found some Poodle (Sis Boom) on sale and got some lovely stripes to go with it.
I won this beautiful bundle of Bliss at Pink Chalk! Oh my! I have to admit this fabric really wasn’t on my radar as a must have, but when I saw it up close and personal, I was in love! Look at that delicious brown! Thanks Kathy and crew:)
Since I was poking around at Pink Chalk anyway, I decided to splurge on a few prints I did have my eye on. Metro Cafe mixers by Monaluna! I’ve been in love with this for a while and I know exactly what I’m going to do with it.
I won this little pack of pretties from the FabShopHop. It’s nice to have some more neutrals in the stash.
I teased you with this photo a couple of posts ago.
This puts it in context and I can only hope you recognize what it is. Those are the spools I was working on earlier.
The top is pieced and I’m working on the quilting, but I’m going to wait for the post officer* to put my early birthday present in my mailbox. Supreme Slider! I hope it helps.
*(Ashley called the postmaster the post officer when she was itty bitty and it stuck!)
Now for the yucky stuff. I’ve been having pain in my right hip for months and thought it was probably arthritis. It mostly hurts when I lay on it, so sleeping is difficult as I’m a side sleeper. The doctor diagnosed it as bursitis and we tried upping my anti-inflammatory and a cortisone injection. Both failed to help, so he sent me to physical therapy. We’re working on stretching and strengthening the muscles in the general hip area. So far, there is no improvement, but I’ve only been there for 4 visits, so I’m hoping it will eventually help. I do feel better after I leave each time. Those little electrodes and an ice pack really feel good! The employees there are so nice and I’ve encountered some interesting patients as well. People are such a hoot!
I hope to update on my Free Motion Quilt-along progress tomorrow.
