In my part of the world we say you are a fool if your passion for a pursuit overcomes all practical sense. I am a stitching fool, and I stitch foolishness.

Random Wednesday Mutterings

  1. I have a pinched nerve in my neck.
  2. It apparently has been caused by repetitive motions.
  3. Stitching involves repetitive motions.
  4. I am to rest and not engage in repetitive motions.
  5. Therefore, I cannot stitch for a day or two.
  6. I have taken a muscle relaxer.
  7. Muscle relaxers turn me into a puddle.
  8. I have an ANG meeting tonight to which I would have to drive.
  9. I am not going to the ANG meeting. See #7.
  10. And I can't stitch, either.
  11. I may as well go to bed.
Last night before my neck started really giving me fits, I did get the rest of the foundation stitches worked and filled in the darkest silk flowers:

Hopefully, the anti-inflammatories and the muscle relaxer will unpinch the nerve and I can get back to regular programming.


  1. Ouch, literally and metaphorically

  2. Feeling much sympathetic pain--hope your recovery doesn't take long.

  3. Hope you are feeling better--not being able to stitch would be as bad as having a pinched nerve

  4. Ouch! I also have a pinched nerve in my neck, but I"M STILL STITCHING! :-)

    I hope you feel better soon!!

  5. So sorry you have to set aside your stitching for a bit. Hope it's not long and maybe you can catch up on your reading! :D
