Time to Hustle and an Update.

25 September 2012

The past few weeks have been full of craziness for me.  I have been seeing a Chiropractor for some time trying to manage some back pain but a little over two weeks ago my back had all it could take.  I woke up one morning and had a hard time walking, pain was creeping into my left leg and eventually I started to have numbness clear down to my toes.  I couldn't go into work and was on my back 24/7, I experienced pain during that time that was unlike anything I had ever encountered.  I waited a few days to get an appointment with the neurologist and after the appointment it was clear surgery was necessary.  We scheduled surgery for my herniated disc last Friday and since then I have slowly been recovering. 

I'm not going to lie, this has been difficult for me mainly because I am a very independent person who doesn't like to be held back.  I like to do things when I want to do them.  I have had to learn to rely on others for help and not only that but to put my total trust in the Lord.  My faith has been tried through this and I believe I am a better person for it!  And I have learned that the Lord will always turn things out for our good!

So due to the back issues, the past few weeks I have not been able to sit at my sewing machine and I am going through withdrawals!!!  I did however get some hand stitching projects ready!!! For the next few months, I won't be able to work on large projects because basting large quilts on the floor won't be an option, and lifting heavy quilts won't be an option. :(  So I am reworking my to-do list and am planning on tackling all of the small projects that I have wanted to get done. 

So here comes the 100 Day Hustle list.

1. Binding on my ticker tape quilt
2. Binding on my chrysalis quilt
3. Cash Envelope Wallet
4. Quilt and bind my Freedom Church quilt
5. Tree Skirt Tutorial
6. Pillow Talk Swap
7. Modern She Made Swap
8. Burlap Tote
9. September - December Bee Blocks
10. Sewing Set
11. Christmas table runner

Hopefully I can get some work done in the next few months!!!

Modern She Made Swap Round 2!!!

Modern She Made

I don't know if you guys have ever participated in flickr swaps before but it is a great way to meet new quilty friends and increase your abilities!  I have loved being a part of the flickr community and it has stretched me so much over the past year.  

I wanted to let you guys know that Julie of Jolie Maxtin, and I are hosting Round 2 of the Modern She Made Swap.  We are limiting the number of participants to 75 and are requiring previous swap experience.  Julie and I were so amazed at the talent in the group during the last round, we can't wait to see what will pop up this go around!

Every round we add in a little twist.  During the last round, our participants had to incorporate a circle into their project somehow, whether it be in their choice of fabric or their design choices.  Well this round we are switching things up a bit, we will be incorporating triangles!  We are super excited to get things started, so be on the lookout for sign-ups next week!
