It has been a while since my last blog. I haven't been feeling well but much better now. I took a Twilling Embroidery class and here is the results. I enjoyed learning this. It is a double knot. I also learned Sashiko Embroidery but haven't finished that one yet, but getting close. It is just a running stitch that is done simular to quilting. I have also quilted 2 quilts but waiting till I get the binding on them before posting them.

The Lawrence County Quilted Treasures Quilt Guild had our quilt show Saturday. We had lots of visitors from other counties. Monica, my daughter, which is a LMT, was our guest speaker. Her presentation was "Fabric of the Body". She told how massage was simular to fabric. For example: When you tear out stitches and it leaves holes in the fabric and then you can smooth it out with your fingers and sometimes the holes will go back together or by washing the material it will heal itself. That is simular to what massage does for our bodies. It aligns everything back up again. For instance, when we are sitting sewing we sit for long periods of time and most of the time with our shoulders together and maybe even slumped over. We should not sit for long periods of time. We should get up and walk and straighten our bodies. She recommends massages starting about once a month or even weekly if you see the results. I will testify that they work wonders.
