Is Quilting Dangerous?????

Well one would think not!!!! There r times when we stab ourselves with a pin or needle or nick our hand with the rotary cutter or scissors (or is that just me???) or when u trip over a bag full of fabric u carelessly left lying around (ok thats definetley just me lol) ..but this weekend i learnt a valuable lesson ......if u r going to spend hours and hours, sewing, cutting or folding patterns........take a break, to avoid unnecessary injury. I have spent the last few days resting my shoulder after tearing a muscle. Thank u to everyone who sent an email or left a comment!!! Bloggers r just soooooo lovely and caring!!!
Not being able to sew, made me quite "cranky" but im hoping to start again tomorrow!!! Ive got another block to finish on the new Winter Quilt (which u can read all about over at Anne Idas blog). Its fun doing a quilt with a friend. All the emailing and planning and the "show and tell" plus just knowing ur sharing a passion with someone like minded!!!
Well a post is boring without pics so Im just going to share with u the advertisements for the Family Values Quilt. This is appears in Homespun:

And this one in Australian Country Threads:

I love them both but this one is by far my favourite..........makes me want to take the quilt back and snuggle underneath it.

Take care

  1. Glad to see you blogging again :o) Just be careful! Those ads looks so great in print!!! YEY, YOU!!!

  2. Ouch!!! Rose how awful! You must rest and take care of your shoulder. I know only too well how cranky we get when we cant sew but you must really be careful.
    Big Hugs!

  3. Glad your shoulder is better! Your ad looks wonderful. Which Home Spun is that? Donna just sent me one yesterday and I LOVE it!

  4. Glad to hear you are on the mind. Those quilts are really pretty and I would have a hard time deciding which one to work on.

  5. I'm glad your shoulder is getting better! How fun it must be to see your own pattern and quilt in a magazine like that! Take care!

  6. I'm just starting to catch up on the many blogs I've missed while moving. Sorry to hear about your shoulder, do take care and rest up. How exciting to see your work in print. I agree, I love the 2nd photo.

  7. glad you are feeling better
    The adds are fab i think I like the 2nd one best as well Hugs to you Beth

  8. Hope your shoulder gets better soon - your winter quilts are beautiful both of you

  9. How wonderful to see your quilt on print like that - you're good!!! Take care of your shoulder :o)
    Have a lovely week....

  10. I love both pictures ! Tell me, it must feel "special" to see your own work in a magazine, doesn't it ? I think I would frame it ! LOL LOL
    CONGRATULATIONS, Rose, I'm so happy for you, dear !

    Now, I do hope you're feeling better, DO YOU ?

    Hugs & smiles,

  11. Oh no! Did you tear a muscle because you were quilting so much? We have a retired physiotherapist in our guild who is always talking to us about stopping to stretch and move around while quilting. I hope you get better very soon.

    So nice to see your quilt in magazines! Congratulations :))

  12. The ads look great in print, of course. I'm glad your shoulder is healing. All of those things you said sound like me - except nicking myself with the rotary cutter. I'm paranoid about that and have managed not to do it in 30+ years!

  13. judy s is really me, Rose. Sorry. I was helping someone and forgot to sign out of their blog before I started to leave comments!

  14. Take care of your shoulder and don't over due it until it's completely healed.

    Nice to see your quilt in the magazine and your right it looks so cuddly.

  15. Take care of your shoulder!
    I had to have stitches in my eyebrow last week, after tripping over a box with fabrics in the dark, so accidents happens elsewhere too. I can take the strips and bandaid off on Wednesday. I will have a scar forever, reminding me to be more careful maybe?
    Congratulations on having your quilt in magazines ! :-)

  16. Ouch! I hope you're feeling better soon hon. How fun to see your hard work up in lights. I'll be looking forward to seeing it in the magazine myself.

  17. Oh dear - another person with a bad shoulder! I'm so sorry to hear this! Both May and I can really understand where you are coming from. How did you hurt your shoulder? Take it easy and don't sew too much too soon. I think I did and now I'm suffering for it.


I hope you enjoyed your visit to my blog. I love hearing from you so thank you for taking the time to leave me a message. 😊
