It has been a very long time since my last post. In August my longarm business picked up and I had been busy quilting customer’s quilts. until I broke my wrist (see below). I have been able to finish up the quilts that were here at the time of breaking my wrist. I will post pictures at the end of this post. Last winter I decided to join my husband curling once a week and I was planning to join the day ladies once a week. We went out to his club twice and I practiced sliding and throwing some rocks up and down the sheet. It was good to be back since I haven’t curling in over 13 years. In early September I ordered new shoes, a new brush and new gloves. I was ready to curl.
Our first game was October 1st at 5 p.m. Our 2nd threw is 1st rock and I tried to go with it – did a little twirl and fell to the ice. The outcome – my wrist was broken and needed to be set. The doctor set it and then put the plaster cast on it. Since then I have had 3 other casts put on – resetting my wrist so the bones will heal properly. Hopefully next Tuesday this cast will be removed and I will start with physio and then I can get back to sewing and knitting etc. I have tried to sew nad it is a slow process. I did discover that I can do plastic canvas work. I have made 8 coasters and a holder.
Here are some finished customer quilts:
