Wednesday’s Words

Just a quick tip this morning for all you quilters:

Get up and move around

Actually this tip came my way a few months ago from Diane on one of her Tuesday’s Tips blogs (I believe), so it’s not original to me, but I thought it was timely to pass it on to all of you.  In this season when we’re frantically putting together all of those Christmas gifts, it can be so easy to just sit and sew all day, but that can be hard on the back and neck and shoulders – and the butt!
Much better to get up and move and stretch every so often – or have the ironing board and cutting board just far enough away that you have to move to get to them.
And when you’ve clenched your jaw enough trying to get all those points to match and the blocks all square – try stretching it out too:

Happy Christmas sewing!        Blessings, Peg


  1. Great advice. Had to do that even so far as needing to go to P.T. for shoulder and back. I am getting it all together and have had a ball making all the fun things. Can't wait for them to see their things. Blessings

  2. LOL! Great photos, and great advise!!! 8-)
