Usually when we say we just can't cut it--in speaking of quilting at any rate--we mean the fabric's so pretty we hate to cut into it. Not this time. This time, I mean it literally.
I didn't tell you before, but CrossFit killed me again on Thursday night. Or perhaps killing me in actuality would have been more merciful. Do you know what planks are when it comes to exercise? Well, they're like this:
It's just as well I've been trying to diet also because on Friday, I couldn't lift a fork or spoon to my lips. And when I tried, it took me several minutes to get my hands high enough to brush my hair away from my face. Trying to reach back to grab my seat belt in the car was enough to make me think seriously about walking the 12 miles to and from work. In fact, walking might have been quicker.
By Saturday, I could move my arms a little further, but they were still pretty achy. Tonight, though--Saturday night--they're finally returning to near normal and I'm looking forward to being able to sleep without screaming in pain every time I turn over.
So, anyway, what I'm getting to is that as much as I wanted to cut a bunch of 2-1/2" squares today for my Scrap Basket Sunday project, it was a little hard to do up until just a couple hours ago, so I didn't get very much done, really--not as much as I would have liked, anyway.
I have 150 squares cut but I'll need somewhere around 900 to 1,000 squares for the sashing, I think, so this is going to take a little time. On Friday, I believed a double arm amputation would be less painful than what I was experiencing, but now I'm glad I put away the power saw because I'm hopeful my arms will feel well enough tomorrow to get more squares cut.
