Sorry to say all my good intentions went down the tube when I a muscle in my neck or back (hard to tell from the pain which covered both parts of my anatomy) and spent Sunday, the day I had dedicated to stitching, on the couch, doped up on Alleve, getting high on Bengay and clutching a heating pad as close to the area as possible. I finally broke down and begged DH to get me some of those heating things that stick to your body because my right arm was beginning to ache from holding the heating pad in place. I had managed to sew some of these 5" blocks together Saturday evening and was optimistic about getting a top together on Sunday. I really hate it when these things happen on the weekend!
I haven't written this year off yet but I'm close. Next year I need a project and a definite, carved in stone goal.
