It's learning to look past life's imperfections

Nearly There!

I can’t get over how quickly these braids make up. IMG_2137

I started with 5 but went with 7 braids 75 inches long.


Last night I had the main body completed. (Yes, there was a happy dance!) I need to add the upper boarders


and the panel of trees below. 

I wasn’t able to work on the lower portion till I picked up more blue, which I did today while out running errands.

I started PT for my shoulder today.  It seems I’ve been in protective mode for so long the shoulder has started to freeze/lock up.  I could slowly raise my hand as high as my head but no further.It wasn’t just the discomfort…it just wouldn’t go any further  All the muscles had basically quit talking to each other..after PT today I already have a tad bit mobility. Thankfully we have access to a wonderful Core wellness center who understand if there is a problem in one area of the body,  it will effect others & treats the whole body. Like a car that has one part go bad, it in turn wears on the others.  I know I’ll probably be sore as all get out tomorrow, but today I’m enjoying the ability to pull my own pants up!!

It’s the little things that make me happy!



  1. That quilt is going to be stunning!

    I can totally empathize and sympathize with your shoulder problem. Been there, done that with first my left one and then the right. (After that I was sure glad I didn't have a third shoulder to go wonky!) Hang in there with the therapy and exercise. You'll get there!

    1. Thank you MamaPea! I fully expected to be super sore today but actually feel pretty good, and SLEPT last night better than I have in MONTHS!!!....

  2. It looks FABULOUS!!! I cannot believe you have so much done! I hope your shoulder feels better soon!

    1. Thanks Debbie, Lots of free sewing time with the rainy nasty weather we've been having.....of course we won't talk about the condition of my house LOL!

  3. Wow! That looks really cool! I really do need to get back into quilting, I've done nothing really craft wise for months, life has got in the way :D


Hey! Thanks for stopping in I love hearing from my bloggy friends!
