Chiropractor and fun mail...

Today I went to my chiropractor...
Oh he sure is the best thing... think he can fix most problems... :)

My hip, back and shoulders is fixed and that sure feels good...
He took a look at the hand too... and it was a little bit more tricky...
the joint capsule is overstrained andnot in a good condition, the leading strings is stretched and a bone had jumped out of its position...
So he have positioned the bone at its place... massaged the whole arm that was so tense and given me laser for circulation...
So now I´m sitting with a much more swollen and numb hand...
but no wonder with all that work out with the hand... ;)
So no sewing lady he said... and no cooking dinner and no cleaning!!!
And prepare yourself that it will take time to heal...and take care...think and dont overdo things!!

As if I didn´t know this!!
Have to have a little chat with my therapist ...because I´m going to work 100 % from next week..
But one good thing he said!!!
You will be recovered!! :)
So how about that..sounds good...right!!!

After that I went in to town to meet Marica and have lunch...
we ate shrimp soup with a lot of aioli... Very good...
and after that we had a little bit of time to shop...if we wanted too... ;)
We found some good bargains on some fabrics...and that´s it!!
We must do this more often Marica...thanks for the day...!!!! :)
Drove home...pretty tired...

and on the table waiting for me... a package from Tasmania waited for me...
A totally surprise...
and what a perfect timing it was... :)
Candy... (perfect for Saturday... :) , a little red and pink dotty fabric parcel and a wonderful magazine... with a video on how to learn machine applique...
Isn´t this wonderful gifts for a girl with sewing problems...
..now I have wonderful reading and a video with learning to master this technique...
Friday is saved... :)
And ohh...the little parcel...
...a lovely tin heart with the loveliest birds...
Christine... this was so sweet of you...
thanks for thinking of me... :L
and I have peeked a little in the magazine...
and ohhh so many wonderful things... I loved it!!

Will be home tomorrow and rest...so no work for me...
and now its time for bed...
Good night...

Nine days....

...and no blogging what so ever...
How could that have happened!!

First of all I want to thank everone that have made a comment and cheered me on and given me some hope to sew again... :)
Thankyou all.... :L
It means a lot!!!

Worktraining take all my energy and the sewing I´m doing there is the sewing Im doing... sort of... :)
Actually a little bit of time here and there...something gets sewn anyway...

I have started to quilt on the Stretched Stars that Kathie so helpfully gave me fabrics to...
and I added little stitcheries and will add buttons to the quilt later...
I just love this little quilt... :)
And what have happened to all the little snippets that were leftovers form the corners ...
Finally I can show you what it became...
a little pincushion or just a little pillow....

The half sq triangles was just 1 1/4" before they were sewn together...
this was so fun to challenge yourself to make up something from the little pieces...
thought it needed a little something so I added a little rose made of lace...

I really love the look of this one!...and there were still fabric pieces left ...so I pieced a backside too...
So thankyou Kathie for sending me the little kit!!!

Hope I can mobilize my strength and get started with sewing and blogging again... :)
Please take care of each other... promise!!!

Feeling down...

Sigh!
How to start...
My stupid ...stupid finger is not cooperating with me!!!

Started worktraining 1 and 1/2 week ago at a textile recycling company ... just to see how my finger can handle getting back to work...
Just started to be able to sew again... but Wednesday or was it Thursday...I woke up with a swollen finger again :c

And it aint fun at all!!
Ohh...it aint as bad as it have been...so that is good...but knowing I can hardly do anything and it get swollen ..this is no good news at all..

Have sewed anyway... ;)
but have to take it easy and slow again!( Aaarrgghhhh!!!!)

Well enough of that...

Jo is having a giveaway..she is celebrating her 100 th post...and wants us to share three crafty things that we cant be without...
and this is mine... :)
...my thimble....my needle and my pink DMC´s... :)
So take a little trip to her and see what more crafty items we cant be without...

And hmmm...this might be my 200 th post... and I sooooo wanted to have something ready for a giveaway... but I´m not... but I´m working on this matter and I hope it will be finished sometime!! So stay tuned... :)

So what do a girl do when she cant sew...READ!!!
Finally bought my two missing books and have been reading when I need a break... :)
and as I said...I have sewed a little...somone is having her birthday soon...so I made a little something for her... on its way... but might be a little late because ..I don´t know where the days have gone...so fast!!!
Hope it will arrive this year anyway... :)

And so many have asked what I have made out of my little snippets...
Yes I actually made something... but it have to wait a little while... ;)

See you soon...

Started to sew!!

Yesterday I was so full of energy after seeing all the activity in blogland...
and I have to say it felt really good to sit behind the sewingmachine!!

Started with the little kit I got from Kathie...
her lovely stretched stars!!
Thanks again Kathie for the lovely homespuns!!!
Sewed them all together... and I couldn´t just leave the little snippets so I sewed them together too...
don´t really know what I will do with them...I leave that for some days and see what I can come up with...
Today I continued with the little kit.....so now its finished... :)
ok sewed together...not quilted..hold your horses!!!
It just need a little something... :)

And how can anyone resist the lovely new FREE BOM´s that Bunny Hill and Gail Pan is so kind to offer!!
I definetly can´t...have Bunny Hills printed out and will start that one soon!! Haven´t decided what colours to use...Hmmmm :f

Gails first block I finished today...
I love it... but as usual..I just can´t use only one fabric... so of course my version will be a scrappier one... but that´s me... :)

Believe it or not I made my christmas presents ready in time for my girls.... in the neck of time ...but I did it!!!
