    Look what I got just for going to the chiropractor!

    I go at least once a month for neck and back spasms, but most times I go a few times a month. I've been seeing my chiropractor for a LONG time (several yrs.), and we've become friends. Yesterday, I went for an adjustment and his staff asked me if I wanted to see some fabric that one of their other patients had brought in -- the family was going to burn it because the quilting mother had to go into a nursing home. He told them that he knew of someone else who quilted and would probably want the fabric (me immediately thought of me). Anyway, I had to share some of the yardage with another woman, but I got all the smaller pieces, some already cut to 3'' pieces.
    Then he asked me how much I'd charge him to make a baby quilt for his expectant daughter, "just something in pink." I told him I'd check to see what I have at home, but when I looked thru the fabric he gave me, I decided I could use some of that too. Then, some of his office staff asked me what I'd charge to quilt some tops they have from their late grandmothers! All of this just because I needed an adjustment! Now to think of a pattern for a baby girl's quilt.........

    Oh my goodness lucky you. I couldn't manage without my chiropractor. If it weren't for him I'd be having hip surgery but he keeps me adjusted and voila no hip pain. I think you've got some great fabric there. I love what you've picked out for the baby quilt and think it will be beautiful. Now if you could just exchange the quilt for an adjustment or two.

    Happy for you. It was so nice of your chiropractor to think of you, now you can start thinking about all the pretty projects you can make from your new stash.

    Debbie, would you mind telling me if the chiropractor has helped your neck problem. I have had neck problems for over 25 years, but since I am retired and not at a desk all day they are so much better. On Dec.5th I had a bad fall and was bruised a lot, but thankfully nothing broken. A month passed and I thought I would start some mild exercises. On the third day of exercising, a half hour a day, I started with severe neck pain. Went to the orthopedic doctor and he sent me to therapy. Along with the neck pain I have had severe headaches too and terrible neck spasms. Happy to report that the spasms are gone and most of the neck pain, but I still get headaches. I am taking an RX for that. The doctor thinks the neck problem started from the exercises. I disagree, and think that it stems from the fall. Already having had neck problems for years, I think the fall shookup the old neck injury. Sorry, I did not intend to go on so. Have a great day and have fun sewing.

    I'm sure that you will find something to do with all that fabric.
