Forced Relaxation

On Monday evening at 9:30, I fell in our dining room, full force, on my right hip (r. wrist is fused so it couldn't break the fall). After a little ambulance ride to the hospital and x-rays, there were no breaks (YES!), but I certainly messed up my hips and lower back...so it's been an "interesting" week. I'm getting on a plane Sunday to fly to the Int'l. Quilt Festival in Houston. This could get very interesting. Humm.

Anyhow, I spent most of yesterday resting and working on beaded necklaces for the Houston trip. Here are the fruits of my labor...
The larger beads are black-blue and the crystals are turquoise (bad photo colors).
This one was made with yummy beads from the Native America store in downtown Athens, GA.

This necklace was a choker for a long time. I took it apart and added some beads to make it longer.

The colored beads in this necklace are metallic cylinders mixed with black glass beads.

It was a good day's fun.

The necklaces are beautiful! I'm sorry you are going to Houston in pain. Hope you heal quickly! Are you going as a vendor or an attendee? I'll be there too and am really looking forward to it!

Oh Anita, I am so sorry to hear about your fall. Know that I'm praying for you. The necklaces are great.

Hi! I cannot find your email address, so I'll post a response to your comment on my blog here.

Thank you so much for the comment you left on my entry to the Festival. I’m so overwhelmed by all the response and wonderful comments I have received. I am happy (probably not the right word..) though that my quilt touches so many people, even if I made it as a way to deal with it myself.

The whole thing started my quilting journey, which you can read about here: http://mrsmoen.blogspot.com/2009/09/my-first-quilt.html.
