It’s hot outside and my wrists hurt!
This has been my basic lament/excuse for abandoning my knitting this summer. And it’s true—there’s heat waves happening all over, and I’ve been working on my laptop nonstop, which makes my wrists tired and sore. I know, I know… I should type on an ergonomic keyboard and wear wrist braces and all that jazz. But I like working on my couch, my feet kicked up. What’s the point of working from home if you can’t lounge on the couch, I say?
Anyway, the point is that I haven’t felt like knitting. But the crafting demon inside me must be fed, so what do I do? I start quilting. A LOT.
I’ve now made two baby quilts (from this great, free pattern) and I’m onto a third one of my own creation. And I’ve only been quilting for a month, people! That’s some quick project turnaround… I think I get what these quilting people have been raving about all this time!
Do any of you dabble in quilting? Have any tips or tricks for me?Tags: not knitting, other crafts, quilting
