Many have asked what I’ve been doing to keep myself busy while I’ve been allowing my body to heal. Well, besides spending a great deal of time with the Lord and my children, I have been quilting. Since my hands don’t want to work to knit or crochet with the repetitiveness of the stitches, I have been quilting. Now, I’m sure your asking yourself what is the difference and how could I quilt without having the same issues. I think it’s due to the fact that I am free hand stitching and I only sew a little, then cut the thread stop and repeat. I have had some issues at times and I stop for a day or two and then am able to get back into it.
Thus far since January, I have been able to make 1 full/queen quilt, hand piecing the squares together, and I have hand quilted 4 lap quilts measuring 4×6 to 3×6 in size and I’ve made 3 table top runners. One of my friends joins me and she calls it guilt free quilting! It’s been very therapeutic for my mind to at least accomplish something and I look forward to making my second full/queen for our son.
Who knows, maybe it’s the start of a new business. 🙂
Adding in a little kitty help. She makes sure to adjust the squares to her liking rather than mine. ha ha
