Alright, first things first. You are probably wondering what I got done during the FNSI aren't you (Dianne)? Well, not as much as I wanted to I have to say. the culprit? Tendonitis, I think. I get shooting pains down the back of my wrists when I do too much hand work. I thought it would be alright, but it was not. I managed to get the bird house and the cat stitched (ok so almost all the cat) but I paid for it today. I have been icing my wrists all day! I took some NSAI too. The pain actually makes it all the way up to my left shoulder and neck. BUT...I *will* keep going so I can be DONE with this and move on to something I really want to work on. This is umpressed...don't judge me!I can see wearing the top from the whale set but will cut up the rest and keep some and sell some later. Isn't it funny? Some people sell this stuff by "one leg panel" or "one sleeve". I guess that will now be me!!
Several of you made mention that it was too bad that embroidery is not my first love, or that I don't enjoy it and neither is really true. I do like to do it. I just don't like to do it with a deadline, so now I know that. It is difficult for me to do it quickly because of the wrist things.
So that takes care of what I got done for the FNSI. Now on to today. I heard that Marshall's had gotten in some Munki Munki pajamas. EEP! For anyone that doesn't know, Munki Munki is a company that was started by Heather Ross. She designed and also owned the company. She has since sold the company but they still use her designs. So people buy up the Munki Munki and use it for quilts or for barter. I went to the Marshall's by my house last week but nothing. I had to go out today and...SCORE!!! I got the whales and the elephants!!
Sew Fresh Fabrics today and bought the fabric bundle for the A Zig A Zag QAL. It was pretty reasonable and if you buy over $35 they refund your shipping if you put ZZQAL in the comments. They had a sweet Kona FQ bundle to go with the Loulouthi I am getting in. I need to start going though my old stash and selling some stuff to fund my habit. I owe Crazy Quilt Girl the national debt!!!
Off to make some dinner and maybe ice down my wrists and try to stitch some more. ~XOP~
