Ouchies slow down the sewing process ...

My psoriasis has been acting up - particularly on my hands, so I've not been able to do a lot of sewing/typing the last few days. I quilted a baby quilt (just SITD), made some bibs and some tote bags (the totes are made from freecycle fabric!), and this past weekend we went down to Buffalo, NY to do some shopping - didn't buy a lot, but had fun - I wish we had Joanns Fabrics here in Canada, lol.

I mailed 8 packages from USPS - Williamsville N.Y. P.O. - your clerk #32 was a DELIGHT!! I checked the price via Canada Post before we went down - the savings were substantial mailing from south of the border - it cost LESS than half of what CP would have charged me. AARRGH!!

I machine stitched the binding onto the baby quilt (the purple one pictured in this blog post) today but when I went to hand stitch it down, I could only do a few inches because it hurt. I'll have to finish this up a bit at a time - it's still 2 weeks until Christmas - LOTS of time!! NOT!!! *biting my nails and making lists of what still needs to be done* :D

  1. Sandra, I know where you're coming from with the psoriasis. My hands are actually killing me but because of the arthritis connected with psoriasis. I'm going to have to go to a specialist to see about this. I love to quilt as well and am having a hard time with quilting and sewing.

  2. I have psoriatic arthritis as well - so far, though, only the psoriasis is slowing me down - the dermatologist is still working on finding the right medication to stop (or slow down?) the peeling. I wish there were an easy fix, but so far, no luck! Best of luck to you!
