Time off

Rising Mist, my last quilt
You're probably wondering why there haven't been any new projects here for awhile.  Well, the problem is that I've got a pinched nerve in my neck, which is not only painful, but is also interfering with my shoulder and left hand through the nerve pathway.  I had to make a decision which blog to concentrate on, and Beading Arts won.  I'm sorry, but I had to hold on to my first love and let most everything else go.

I am doing physical therapy and am working hard to heal, but it takes time.  It's also problematic, as many of you can probably relate, because I have the tendency to hunch over my work which makes it even worse.  I'm not sure how successful I'll be in training myself to stop, but I'm working on it!

Meanwhile, make wonderful things, and please do visit me on Beading Arts.  When I'm able to start quilting and collaging again, I'll also start posting here again.

Love you all!

I'm glad you're doing physical therapy, and I hope you get better soon! Funny thing... I suspect I might have the same thing after all the hunching over I've done with my doll quilts. As soon as I get back from vacation, I'm going to book an appointment with my massage therapist, AKA The Smartest Person Ever.

Thank you, Robbie <3
Sorry to hear this, Cyndi. I hope physical therapy helps fast.

When you're better, you might consider yoga. It's great for maintaining proper posture. Like you, I'm at the computer or my work table all day long. It's just so natural to start slumping forward to get closer to your work. Yoga has really helped me.
