Fell down, Went boom

Two weeks ago I slipped on a patch of ice and fell....nothing broke, just yoinked, so I was really lucky.  However, I did wrench my right shoulder and arm pretty well, and it has limited my range of motion and pleasant attitude.  As a result, I've been sorely absent from blogging and sewing, and I felt I owed you an explanation.  I'm feeling much better, with the remaining pain limited to my shoulder now, so I'm back sewing again...Yay!   I have much to catch up on, so the posting will have to wait until I get more current on my projects. 

My daughter, the soccer goalie, was with me at the time I fell, and she said I landed like a pro ... she should know :)  She also is an athletic trainer for her college soccer and basketball teams, so she been a good resource on treating my bruises and pulled muscles.  She's now fondly known around here as The Ice Queen. 

Anyway, I just wanted to let you know why I've been absent and assure you I'll be back to regular blogging just as soon as I can.


  1. I'm so sorry to hear about your fall! Glad your healing and hoping your shoulder will continue to get better!

  2. Ouch! I'm so sorry you've been hurt!!! Good thing you have a trainer in your home. I hope you didn't damage the rotator cuff. I hear that can be really painful and hard to recover from. Thanks for the link to the tutorial on the narrow hem corners. That's always a problem.

  3. OUCH!!!! That sounds awful - thank goodness you didn't break anything! I hope you recover quickly, hon!

  4. Thanks Marlene, Julia, and Allie...I've been getting better with's just taking longer these days than it did when I was 20 ;) The nice side is getting such warm wishes from friends like you guys...Hugs :)
