Crazy Horse Quilt Runner: Week 19 and Pain and Spring

Here's another weekly progress photo showing a pathetic amount of progress - just the last four corner tongues with dividers.  Explanation to follow.

I won't go into detail, but I have this hand, arm and shoulder "issue".  I believe I've mentioned it before.  Well, this week I decided to bite the bullet and have "deep tissue massage" - not to be confused with regular old relaxing massage with candlelight and soft music.  And I do mean that part about biting the bullet.  I've seen that in movies - like when they are cutting some poor guy's leg off with no drugs and they give him a bullet to bite on.  I survived the session - I never said "Uncle" although I came pretty close a few times.  I probably need four more sessions - interspersed with exercises done at home.  In the meantime, Do Not get between me and my Motrin.

And, rug progress will be slow...

Even though it is May 14th, the furnace actually came on this morning.  We have already had days in the 90's this May, but not today!  I put on my jacket and walked outside to see what's happening in the garden today.  It's Iris time here in Kansas...

I am trying Calla Lilies this summer in my two Talavera pots on the patio.  I really love the color.  I hope they are able to multiply quite a bit.  I probably should have put several in each pot.  Right now, each plant has about 5 or 6 blooms.
When you look inside, there is a great polka dot thing in there!  I'm sure it has a more technical name than "polka dot thing".

Have a great Spring week everyone!


  1. Amy,
    I hope your arm and shoulder feel better very soon! Your rug is great, as usual!

  2. I hope you are able to resume working on your rug soon. I am working on the smaller rug-sized version your runner. Love your color choices--especially your horse and chicken! Feel better!

  3. Oh gosh, Love your rug! It's gorgeous!
    Hope the massage helps more than hurts! My sister is a massage therapist and wow, what a difference! I swear by them!
