Doc Flo's Advice

Hi there!

Here's a joke for you....


A blonde goes to the emergency room convinced she has a terminal disease.

"Everywhere I touch myself I am in severe pain."

"Show me," the doctor requests, and she complies.
She touches herself, here and there,
and cries from the pain!

"Ahhh I see, you've got a broken finger.",
the doctor replies.


Okay, since I've come down with the sore arm and thumb,

I've been taking the anti-inflammatory pills - at need.

In the meantime, I've finally figured out
the "why, where and how come",
of my pain, much to my chagrin....

I've been using a LOT of pressure
on my ruler and on my thumb.....
(you gals sitting down?!??)
..... when I'm cutting fabric !!!!!

*long and LOUD groan*

What's a quilter to do, eh?

I've managed to convince Gilbert
that he can cut the fabric, for me.
He agreed.

But then, I explained to him the concept of
paper piecing and at that point,
he politely declined his offer.

Then, I wrote to my good pal....
let's just say that she's in the
"Health Care Business"....
I've been calling her, "Doc Flo".

Explained the situation and she....
much to my chagrin,
said it's best to let my arm
rest for 8 to 10 days and
to continue with those darn pills!

*another long sigh*

Sooooo, before she gave me the bad news,
I had managed to finish 2 more
Christmas Dear Jane (DJ) blocks.

Will get them re-sized and blog
about them, in a bit.

*who's been trying to find some OTHER sewing projects,
that don't require a blade or ruler*
