I won a quilt!

I can't believe it, but I actually won a quilt, from Karen Gass. You can see a picture of it here.

That just makes me so excited about quilting... that I'm gonna go turn on my machine. And yes, I'm doing so much better now with my back/hip. I've figured out what triggers the pain, so I avoid them. Unfortunately one of the things that causes spasms is when I shave my legs. I used to shave 3 times a week!

I've got really fuzzy legs right now. :P

The quilt is awesome!!! You're so lucky.

I do my legs 1/3 each day, calves one day, knees the next, thighs the next. Just cuz I hate it so much, lol...and dang, it's time to start ALL OVER AGAIN by day 4.

Congratulations on your win. It looks like a big quilt too.

My back was hurting last week as well. I had a hard time moving. And not moving. Heat helped a lot. I've taken a lot of showers where I just let the warm water spray my back. There is some liquid now like icy hot and stuff like that that you just spread on your back and it keeps it warm. I also got some prescription muscle relaxants and that helped. I just took those for a couple of days and they took away the spasms. Now I think I have residual pain - from the weird posture I have to avoid the original pain.

And the shaving thing - I would use that excuse for a very long long time.
