Oh My Aching Back!

Crawling around on the floor tying a quilt is rough on my knees, but that's nothing to the back pain I've had after finishing the binding. I've been taking pain killers for the last two days.
I add the binding on the biggest flat table I have - my dining room table. It's the standard height, so I have to half bend over to work. Ouch. Won't be doing that for a long time!

My work table in my sewing studio is higher, and set at an angle so I don't have this type of pain when I work piecing a quilt together. In fact, except for sitting down to sew, I do most of my work standing up.

The quilt, by the way, is about 64" wide by 96" tall.

Each time I baste a quilt, I vow that I'll find a better way next time. I doubt that I can do another one. Take care - hope you're feeling better

Why do we do this kind of thing to ourselves?
The answer we can't help ourselves. We need to create beautiful things.
Hope you back recovers quickly.
