    Just starting another quilt

    The blocks are only pinned to my wall for now. I'm going to do as many as I can until I can get a the background fabric later this week, couldn't wait I just had to get sewing on something. lol
    I love the fabrics from Marshal's Dry Goods, marbleicious.
    My hands are killing me, by back is killing me. I need to learn to put the sewing down for a day or two just to recoup, but you know how it is. I only have four pinned up, working on the number five of 30 to 40. We'll see.

    These look great. You quilt will be beautiful.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    Very pretty.

    Have you tried Biofreeze for your hands and back? I am not affiliated with the company. I just roll it on constantly and it keeps me going. Doesn't always take all of the pain away but takes the edge off. I order it through Amazon.

    No I haven't tried the biofreeze yet, but I will, thanks. I've soaked my hands in hot water for about 5 to 10 minutes and that relaxes them for awhile. I have carpal tunnel in both hands from pounding on a computer for 30 years. My fingers are always numb when I sew, so I know I will have to do something in the near future.

    It will be gorgeous, love the colors and fabric. Love those flowers. For your hands just spread your hands and fingers out and wiggle your fingers. Should help keep fingers limber. Squeezing a soft ball my hlep also. Hard to quit when you just want to keep going.
