Lesson learned: when you’re moving house, take it easy. Don’t try to lift anything too heavy for you!
We moved to our new home on October 28, and a month of packing prior to the move finally took its toll on me. My back was so stiff and sore, I didn’t think I’d be able to make it to the quilting retreat with my friends in early November!
Thankfully, my friends Megan and Jan kindly came to pick me up, and I was able to sprawl in the back seat of Jan’s SUV on the way west to the lake. A weekend of Tylenol, hot showers and rest paid off — I came home feeling much better!
But I didn’t bother lugging my sewing machine and big container of fabric with me. Instead, I took some small handwork and knitting. It was about all I could manage that weekend!
Here is a pic of the Christmas birds I made for Mouse. Don’t be too impressed — they came precut in a kit. All I had to do was sew them together and embellish a little!
