I don’t know if I’ve pulled a muscle (that’s really what it feels like) … but I’ve got tenderness in my right abdomen (mostly just below the rib cage). If it is a pulled muscle, I must have aggravated it while painting and made it worse by leaning over the side of my recliner to grab my iPad several times while quilting yesterday (no room on the end table next to my recliner, so I’ve always just laid it on the floor next to my chair). The tenderness came on slowly yesterday … by dinnertime, I was experiencing some pain when standing up straight, breathing deeply, etc. By bedtime, I was unable to find a comfortable sleeping position. I got up and figured I might as well do a little quilting … sitting upright in my recliner is a comfortable position. After a few hours of quilting, I finally was able to fall asleep in my recliner … but not for long. Thankfully I have a doctor’s appointment Tuesday afternoon … hopefully I can nurse this along until then.
The upside is that I’m able to make progress on DH’s quilt … although truth be told, I’d rather be painfree. Once again, the fabrics are washed out in this picture … I took this with my iPhone in the middle of the night last night.If I’m counting correctly (I’m counting in my head instead of getting up and counting blocks), I have 35 blocks left to quilt … all that’s left are single outer blocks all the way around, except for one side where there are two outer blocks … there are 63 blocks in the quilt. I fully expect to get past the halfway point today … hopefully I won’t be up most all night quilting tonight.
It seems impossible that in just 4 days, we’ll be in 2015. Where in the world did 2014 go? That means I’ve got a mere 4 days to think about what I’ve accomplished in 2014 and what I’d like to accomplish in 2015.
I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that brings you joy! Have a great day!
