I went to the community center to work on the large scrappy quilt. I set up several tables so I could lay out the three layers and get them pinned together while keeping each layer as wrinkle free as possible. It was hard work. In the process of either setting up or taking down those tables, I did some damage. My knee cap is black and blue and my shin too. I managed a small cut just below my knee. All on the left leg.
It looks like I have taken up a rough and tumble contact sport instead of a sedate activity like sewing.
And let me tell you, maneuvering a large quilt around a small machine to do the quilting is labor intensive as well. First of all, it involves setting up extra tables to hold the weight. Then there is all the adjusting and readjusting to keep all the layers smooth. I'm hoping my arms will muscle up.
Maybe I'll go out for a long bike ride. It's a lot easier on the joints.
