This week I have been suffering from Plantar Fascilitis (inflamation of a ligament in my foot). It started last Saturday, when out shopping with the Fairy. I hobbled around getting shooting pains in my heel and couldn't understand why as nothing specific had occurred. All I could link it to was the numerous hours I stood at the ironing board* the previous night pressing pieces of fabric and cutting out hexagons for a quilt I am gong to start. The doctor informed me that this could have been the tip of the iceberg and that the only solution was to put my feet up for a week, use heel pads and do some exercises. I couldn't even do any sewing as it is my peddle foot!!!
Although I did enjoy sitting and reading for long periods of time... I do have a lot of work I need to do, so coaxed my left foot into action ( I am very right handed, and thought that I would be very right footed, but my left foot coped very well with the challenge!!). Alongside some new pinnies and some other new products I have been fiddling with (all will be revealed soon enough), I had said that I would make kit bags for the children (mine and my nephews/nieces - 6 of them, aged 6 and under), for when we are together so that we can keep their things in order. I made simple drawstring bags, each with their initial appliqued on.
Hopefully it will stop confusion and keep things a little tidier!!! I love the spotty fabric... it looks red in the image ( it is gloomy up North and the light is terrible), but it is bright pink with orange spots. I love this colour combination. Fruit salad, pull your teeth out sweets, from the 1980's!!!
*re: ironing board - my New Years Resolution (to myself) was not to have the ironing board continually up in the living room. So far I have failed miserably, as soon as the tree went and things get back to post Christmas normality, the ironing board went up... and hasn't been down much. I really must organize my workspace and get a board in here!!!
