Hey my Friends ;O)

Thank you everyone for all of your well wishes and concerns.. I am feeling better today so I thought I would put up a little post. I have to say this neck, hand and arm business is for the birds... It's bad for me as a person that loves to sew. I can't even open and close a pair of scissors!! I tried to cut applique parts for a mug rug just a couple of days ago and had to quit.... I am like the rest of you. I hope this current little problem hurry ups and gets better. I hate not sewing!! Speaking of sewing.... 
I want my followers to start these projects now. I am still going to hold my Annual Halloween Block Swap and My Christmas Block swap. I'm Giving my usual participants advance warning. This knowledge will give you almost 10 months to come up with ideas and making your blocks.
I was thinking I am sort of getting spring fever... I want to hold a mug rug swap. I just love those little bits of fabric! Not to forget to mention the instant gratification of the quick project!!

Mug Rug Swap
I think it would be fun to make a Mug Rug using your choice of the following themes.
Gardening, Flowers or a spring Animal (exp Bird)
The theme is your choice and you will make one Mug Rug

One little gifty that corresponds with your theme.
For example if I made a garden mug rug.. I might send along a package of Seeds

Hello My Sweet Blogging Friends :O)

I am sorry I have been away. I have been having trouble with my old car accident injuries. I have recently begun to have pain in my shoulders and down my arms into my hands. The PT Doctor seems to think I have some entrapped nerves that run down my arm. It starts at my neck and runs the entire length of my arm into my hands. I can barely make it through my work day with all the typing I have to do, which leaves me too sore to sew or type much after I get home. Most days I don't want to do anything but sit in front of the TV after taking some pain pills. I made myself finish up a Christmas gift this week. My Person knew that it was going to be late. I also had two custom orders that I had to make over the last 10 days. They were easy  mostly sewing on the sewing machine. Thank goodness not a lot of hand work. My fingers and thumbs are having spasms and I am unable to hold a needle very long. I can only do things on short bursts.  I don't know when I will be better. I am doing PT stuff now to try and get back to my normal without all this extra pain...
I am sorry but until I get to feeling better.. I will not be holding any more swaps or posting much.
I am sorry If you don't see me here very much. You can try and catch me on FaceBook or see my pins on Pinterest when I feel up to clicking :O) Until then my sweet friends... 
Happy Stitching and NO Ripping ;O)
