With a title like “Pain In The Neck”, you would think that I’m talking about something (or someone, I suppose) that’s causing me grief. Actually, I’m talking about a literal pain in my neck.
Ever since I was a kid and I pulled something in my neck while taking a gymnastics class, I get occasional neck pain. Lately, it’s exacerbated by spending too much time infront of the computer (it’s not an ergonomically designed setup) or when my pillows start going flat – both of which I think is the cause of my current pain.
So, all this pain means that the book review that I had planned on putting up is delayed until I am a bit less disabled and I’m planning on limiting my sewing time this afternoon (I had hoped for a marathon of afternoon sewing) – all that looking down can’t be doing me any good.
But enough about that, on to some creative fun. I finally got my hands onto an issue of Craft! So far, it’s another great issue – I spent the better part of an evening sifting through it. One project that I think I will eventually make – the Japanese Punk Shirt.
My fabric from Gorgeous Things arrived yesterday too. The fabrics are beautiful, but the springaqua print is not quite as stretchy as I had hoped. It was listed as a jersey, but feels more like a stretch woven. The pattern I had hoped to use it for asks for “moderate stretch knits” – does anyone know what the definition of moderate is? Also, does anyone remember what pattern reccomendations Anne had for that fabric (I may be emailing her this afternoon about it)?
