We had a huge weekend with family and before I knew what I was doing it was too late. Ive put my shoulder out lifting the grandkids too much and wrongly. The sort of 'out' that sees your shoulder differ from the other one by two inches in height and makes your arm go numb rendering it useless to the point that you want to cry in a corner, any corner will do.
There are three grandkids all of a sudden so its no wonder. I tend to think im stronger than I am right now. So its been watching movies and slowing down for me these last two days. Any suggestions for whats good to watch at the moment? Ive caught up on all the Grand Designs I had taped...
Ive hit the productive wall. Its not that I dont want to sew, its just that my body, in particular my shoulders and back are telling me to stop. Not slow down, but stop completely.
The problem is that I have a few unfinalised custom orders so its not a very good time for this to happen.
I struggled so much at the beginning of today and wasnt moving 'right' that I spilt bleach on a dress as I was ironing it. Then another disaster when I realised I had completely finished a jacket only to discover the hood had a stain in the wool I hadnt noticed before. This sometimes happens when I cut out at night that I dont see the imperfections until the following day.
On the upside, you know how im always coming home from the market exhausted? the put-myself-straight-to-bed kind of exhausted? Well it seems I forgot to update the shop with these few things a whole month ago. I was pleased to discover them and that I can manage a shop update with no sewing needed after all.
Love the brown and citrus check blanket for eskimos right now. Its saying dusted boho.
The orange one is an order headed off to the UK as we speak.
