I was backing out of a doorway yesterday at the office and caught the heel of my shoe on one of the carpets that a cleaning supply service provides for our tiled floors. There was no way to stop my fall so I toppled over backwards. Thankfully, my bum hit the floor first before the rest of me went over so I barely hit my head. Someone heard me yelp as I was falling and helped me back to my desk. I had to fill out an accident report for OSHA and then off to the doctor's office. Diagnosis? I broke my bum...or at least I badly bruised my coccyx. I also jarred every muscle up my back and shoulders. I feel like I was in a car wreck as my neck is really aching. I will be sitting on a pillow for a while and am taking the day off today because I need a heating pad. I am taking an anti-inflammatory for the pain and swelling and at night I am taking a lovely muscle relaxer. I have to say that in this instance I am happy I don't weigh what I did when I moved to Berks County. Those extra pounds on my backside helped protect the rest of me!
I think my base camp today will be in the studio. I have everything I need up here (except a potty) and when I get tired of laying around I can sit and sew for a bit. My sister found this for me in a remnant bin and it will be a weekender tote.
I already have the exterior and interior cut and quilted. I am changing my design just a little bit on this. I like to do a tie closure just because you can easily stuff these bags and it really puts a strain on a button. I am now adding a flap of fabric that will go over everything in the bag and then it can be tied. This will make it much nicer as a carry-on bag when flying. No worries about unmentionables falling out in the overhead bin!
