tennis anyone?

my elbow hurts.

i think i have tennis elbow.

from quilting.

don’t laugh.

so yesterday, all day, i didn’t pick up a needle. i wanted to. i really really wanted to. but i didn’t. i took a day off. woke up this morning and my elbow still hurts.  i really need a quilting fix.  i really need to get some needle action.  sigh.

i had to run some errands yesterday and bumped into a little tent selling stuff.

good stuff.

old japanese stuff.

so i got this….

cool, isn't it!!

pretty sure it’s the god “Hotei”  , god of happiness…it looks great in my garden… just not sure where it looks best…  

does it look good here????

*************

or do you like it better over here…

i think it looks good on the quilt… but i need to bring the quilt in because i have more stitching to do.

no pain, no gain.

i can rest this elbow when it gets too hot and humid to sew….

    Cool! Love those stone statues, what a neat find your little god statue is! I like him in the green bushes, I think the green sets off the copper color quite nicely!

    Jan: I like the grome or what ever it is in the lst picture in with all the green, I guess it will look good anywhere you put him, he is cute.

    I’m a weaver and spinner – do both every day, as well as knitting, stitching etc., etc., I’ve been getting acupunctute once a month for years. It’s marvellous for those types of repeative injuries and pains. My acupuncturist is from Chiba – living and working in B.C. Canada, I wouldn’t be weaving without her.
