Recovering nicely

Thanks to everyone for their well wishes.  I am walking like a normal person now and the pain is mostly in my upper shoulder and neck area.  It strangely feels as though my head is too big for my neck to support.  Isn't that weird?!  I spent yesterday lying about with a heating pad and a gel pack. This morning I woke up feeling good enough to venture into the studio to sew so I whipped up this bag


This afternoon quilty sister Julie picked me up in her hot rod truck and took me for lunch and up over the mountain to Burkholder's Fabrics.  We had those terrific 30% off coupons.  I had to go.  My intention was to purchase a jelly roll but I decided that I really don't have time to make something else for me right now.  I have bags that need to be made for the open house and I already have several partially finished holiday gifts that I need to complete.  So...I used the 20% discount coupon and bought fabrics for to make bags.

I used my 30% coupon to purchase a bottle of Mary Ellen's Best Press.  I got the Citrus Grove scent and it smells delish.  I also picked up a few 99 cent remnant pieces.  Any day that involves eating out and shopping for fabric is a good day!

Tomorrow will be an all day sew if my body is up to it.  I know the spirit is willing even if the flesh is a little weak!


  1. happy to see that you are out and about. pretty fabrics, and great way to use a coupon!

    oh, and the new bag is cute too!

  2. I'm glad you are feeling better, and also want to tell you that I do, and always have loved your fabric choices. They are RICH and delicious!! Have a great day!

  3. Will you make me one....PUH LEEZZZZ???

    That bag is rockin...I love the Fall colors or even a black and orange one.
