I have had a little lower back pain myself off and on. It is VERY mind-grasping. I feel so sorry for people who have to live in constant pain. IF I quit lifting heavy objects and quit pushing and pulling heavy objects, my back would be fine.
I feel like such a whiner when I have to ask someone to help me lift a small box as I did today when I wanted to move my Phylly crate up onto a table. Terry was with me and she very nicely helped me. When she started to lift it, I'm sure she thought I was being ridiculous. I think she pretty much lifted it herself even though I was on the other side of it! My back doesn't hurt though!
So I spent most of the day putting patterns away. I have been making so many new Sure-fit Designs styles that they were all over my sewing room. I finally got them all organized and put into envelopes. Ready for a new project.
I actually have had TWO WADDERS this week. That hardly ever happens to me anymore, and I was really upset about it. Making your own styles can get complicated in figuring out how to put them together. PLUS, I was using that slippery fabric that I hate sewing with, and it was giving me fits. That stuff GROWS or SHRINKS every time you turn your back on it! The blouses would have been wonderful, but....
Mother's Day is this weekend. I want to go to Tulsa to attend Sunday service at my sister's church, BUT we have severe thunderstorms forecast for the next three days.
Looks like we will just stay home. Jerry will give me my favorite gift: Himself! He says I can have him for the whole day to do whatever I want. Too bad the weather won't cooperate.
I bet I can find some Honey Do jobs though.
Terry is working on a huge quilt top for her bed. She has had to make SO MANY blocks. She almost gave up half way through and added borders, but I talked her out of it. I KNOW it is really hard right now, but years and years from now, she will be so happy she finished it.
OF COURSE, I will show it to you when she gets it done and when she puts it on the longarm. We found some real pretty thread in my stash to use for it. Years ago, Phylly and I went to a big quilt show in Kansas. Dozens of vendors were there, and I think I bought large spools of quilting thread from every thread vendor there. I am really glad Terry is able to use some of them.
Did you see what Gertie is up to now? It has something to do with the industry using drawings of women who are 8 heads tall instead of 7 -- or is it 9 heads tall instead of 8. Something like that. Something akin to the Barbie Doll, I suspect.
Let me see if I can snatch a picture:
I won't keep you. Stay safe. I'll be back soon.
