In the Pink: A Flimsy

The quilt for the ballet school's breast cancer fundraiser is moving right along. The leg pain won't let me sit for long periods of time, so sewing a quilt top is a perfect activity for me: Stitch a little, press a little, stitch a little, press a little, stitch stitch stitch press a lot stitch a little more . . . .

I'm liking this a lot.

You may be thinking it wants a border. I concur. Border fabric has been ordered from Glorious Color and their service is so speedy, I'm likely to be posting a finished top by Tuesday.

Thanks to those who asked/commiserated about the leg. I started physical therapy today and will be going twice each week until further notice. I like the guy and I felt some improvement even with just one visit. Next week I believe he'll give me exercises to do at home. And he's cleared me to walk some, just on level surfaces.

What surprise me is how tiring having this kind of an injury is. I came home from PT and took a full hour's nap. This after sleeping 8 hours last night. And I know tonight won't be a late one, either.

So happy to hear that even the first PT eased some of your discomfort! I feared you'd be sorer the first time or two. Take care!

Love these happy blocks and their sashing is perfect to showcase them best! I look forward to seeing the border fabric you've chosen, too.

Hope there's some other project that will keep you in that helpful rhythm of sew, sew, press, press, stitch a little more, press, etc. as you wait for the new fabric to arrive.

Cheers that the PT is already helping your poor knee. I'm not surprised you're feeling extra tired as pain is tiring and having to pay attention to how and where you walk is also tiring. Enjoy those naps!

Wishing you well.

Glad you are getting the help you need with your leg problem. Pain really drains energy from a person!! I know you have things to do, places to go and people to see so the pain has gotta go!!!!

Glad that the PT is helping a bit. That is my favorite song from 'The Music Man'! Pick a little, talk a little, pick pick pick, talk a lot pick a little more. Oh, and 2nd fave is 'Lyda Rose'. That is one lovely pink quilt top. Can't wait to see the quilting.

Pain mimics/causes so many other symptoms (including exhaustion) ... take care and rest (between exercises).

Like the quilt-in-the-making!
