Stitching Stuff: Week 30 of 2021

The last week the typical July weather of high 90 F temps with heat indexes over 100 F finally materialized.  So it's been uncomfortably warm.  My discomfort unfortunately hasn't been limited to the weather. My shoulder decided to act up. The pain was so bad it woke me up Wednesday morning.  So I'm back on anti-inflammatories. That also means I have to avoid the sewing room and reduce my computer time. So my stitching report isn't stellar.  

  • 15 minute days/week = 3/7 days
  • 15 minute days/July = 20/24 days
  • 15 minute days/2021 = 175/205
  • Success rate = 85.37%

The shoulder is better, but still tender.  I'm hoping to get back into the sewing room, at least for 15 minutes this afternoon. I'll have to continue to limit computer time, so I'll be slow on blog reading and replying to comments.

I hope your week has been more productive.  Please link up and share how your week with needle and thread went.

Happy Sunday

I assume you had a shoulder injury that acts up now and then? it is so hot here too - I need to get off the computer and enjoy the morning outside as it will be too hot to do much out there by lunch time

Barbara said...

Sorry about your shoulder. I’m sympathetic, although mine is feeling pretty good right now.

Sherrie said...

Hope your shoulder is feeling better. Have
a great day!

I sure hope the shoulder feels much better. I’m struggling with a sore knee, so once I go downstairs to my sewing room I stay put as long as possible so that I’m not running/hobbling up and down the stairs more than once or twice.

Hi Kate, take care of yourself so that you can keep on quilting :-) I was avoiding the studio - it's pretty hot in here but I finally got into actually quilting stuff, like piecing! It felt really good. I didn't realise how much I missed it. So for the first time in a few weeks, I did quilt. I tend to be an all or nothing, so when I sew, it's for hours. Oh well, it did make up for lost time. Take care.

DawnyK said...

Oh no! So sorry that your shoulder is acting up. Last week was difficult for me also. I had to skip the gym just from not feeling well. Hope you have been able to find some time to rest and rejuvenate over the weekend! Take your time and don't worry about responding. We all go through it. Take care!!! Thank you for posting the link-up party today!

Oh no hope the shoulder gets better soon. I think shoulders are worse because it effects all movement you find out how left/right handed you are. I go to bed with a heated wheat bag most nights and put it on which ever part of me hurts the most. I managed to get a massage a couple of weeks ago and was due for another one last week I'm hoping we can reschedule to this week but it made a huge different to my neck. Fingers cross that the shoulder gets better.

I sympathize with the shoulder pain. I have a severely strained muscle in my left arm and am reduced to doing having one-handed and depending on my husband to do what I can't do. So, no gardening or sewing or driving for at least two more weeks.

I am glad that your shoulder is feeling better, and do hope that you heal completely right away. It's no fun to be in pain.

Carol Andrews said...

Good to hear your shoulder is improving a bit. Take care of yourself.

I had a good week this week. Now to get on the long arm and get Mosaic off and others on.

I hope your shoulder feels better.
