Whatever you did "Sharalee" it worked! Shocked
Thing 1 and Thing 2 did not touch anything they were not supposed to, were patient while I picked fabric, and did not slobber all over said fabric!
I just washed and ironed and will commence cutting during naptime.

Good luck with the neck shot, chronic pain is not fun!
Although it may be years down the road, I am not looking forward to the inevitable arthritis (runs in the family) that might make me put down my knitting needles. I am trying to talk myself into thinking that with use (knitting) they will be nicely exercised and will remain healthy.

Can't wait to start cutting and sewing this weekend!  Glad you had a good trip silentblair--that the wee ones got the good vibes we were sending you! Cheesy

Keep on knitting...the old adage, use it or lose it, works for arthritis!  I try to knit or crochet daily to keep my hands limber and pain free...also, doing dishes by hand in hot soapy water does wonders...if I can push myself away from my crafting area! Cheesy

My carefully planned weekend (which included some "creative work hours" and shift trading at work) just got cancelled... I'm not sure if I should be happy or sad. Sad: no road-trip to meet an internet friend and probably not much "Get out of town" time... BUT... Happy: I now have an entire free weekend for crafting! If I wake up early and get moving... I may even get the apartment cleaned, too. *crosses fingers*

Thank you for those good vibes as well! Wink (and anyone else who sent them my way!)
Last night my daughter kept me company in the "Martha Room" and was totally respectful of sharps and other things she shouldn't be getting into. Is it finally at the age of 4 I can welcome her into my addiction? Is exposing her to the nefarious world of crafting a type of child abuse? Wink

Warm soapy water is a great tip. It's morning and just thinking about dipping my hands into something like that sounds like heaven. Sigh.
Ever since I turned 35 (37 currently) it seems my body is in mutiny mode. Grin Grin Grin

 Thanks for the nice coments & I think it did help won't know for sure for a few days.  Oh so glad You had a good shopping day with your kids.  Cheesy  Yes it's so nice when they get old enough to get them involved in what your doing like crafting. Also keep knitting or crocheting it does help them keep limber. Try siwiming & really put a effort in it, I just found out that recently, & it really helped my body. Your weightless in the water & the hot tub feels so good. Have fun sewing! Grin

I'm cutting--it really is a great tutorial. I'm hoping--as I'm sure fiddlegirl8 is--that it comes out really nice. (If not, it's not Leslie's fault Tongue)

I'm sure it will be nice - YOU'VE ALREADY FINISHED ONE OF THESE!!!  AND IT WAS AWESOME!  I will like it, no matter what - you're just too cool for me not to!!!  See, I get all nervous when I start a quilt - or when I'm getting ready to put the back of it together - I'm all scared and stuff to cut the fabric - I'm so afraid I'll screw it up!  So I have to bite my lip, or my tongue, and just cut.  After that, I usually quit shaking and I can sew whatever I need to sew and get it done.  So bite your lip or your tongue and cut - the fabric, not your tongue!  I haven't completed the extra, so I won't mail tomorrow, but soon!!   Cheesy

Even after years of sewing and quilting, I get cutting anxiety! Cheesy

I received an awesome box of miscellaneous goodies from a mod buddy and inside was something perfect for my extra!!!

This is definitely going to be my go-to apron gift for Christmas presents!  I am plotting the fabrics to use for my best friends...Have fun everyone!
