The knee was aggravated by my Physical Therapy, so I'm 2 steps forward & one step back. I still can't sit or stand at Lily the Longarm, but will go crazy if I watch any more TV, so I went into the Studio & started working on 2 Examplers to be used as samples for my Over-the-Top-Embellishments classes. One to take to Michigan with me, the other to hang here in the local quilt Shop where I'll be teaching this fall.
I decided the ABC's would be any easy way to sort through & organize the class. In Michigan I'll skip over the obvious things, like B for buttons, but for here I've decided I'll split the class into groups of 5 or 6 & make it separate classes to cover everything & then some.
B is for Buttons.
C is for copper. Needle punched on the machine, then hand stitched into place.
D is for Dreaming up new ideas, unless I can think of something better. A paper keepsake scrapbooking word was added.
E is for Embossing powder. I think it needs something else, but this is as far as I got yesterday.
Ever since I turned 50, sleep has been difficult for me. I just don't sleep well & I can't figure out why, but now pain adds to the fray, & I'm lucky to get 3 good hours before I'm up & down & tossing & turning. I really wonder what it would be like to sleep well for a change. Melatonin & Benadryl help me get to sleep, & Ibuprofen & a pain pill help ease the pain for maybe 3 or 4 hours, but after that, it's flip, toss turn, mind race, ideas that I should write down but never do. My friend Kathy says she wants to know how my mind works. I thinks this must be the answer. Sleep deprivation . It causes the mind to spin in all sorts of strange directions.
