My sore neck

A week ago yesterday, I woke to a pull and then pop in my neck. Not a good think when you have Degenerative diisc Disease and have a metal plate and 8 screws in the neck. It bothered me that day and with every day since, it just got worse and worse to the point where I had severe pain in my neck going up into my head.  Early Wednesday morning I ended up in the ER in severe pain.  Luckily the plate and screws were still in place but I somehow managed to severely pull the muscles in my neck.  It is amazing how much you do with those muscles.  I have been off work this past week due to the pain and the fact I couldnt hold my head up which is kind of a problem when you work on a computer all day.  I have a wonderful and concerned boss who has been patient with me and allowed me to be gone. In all of this I have had 2 quilts to complete which have both had alot of applqueing.  Luckily the NY quilt was finished but the Dodger one was still requiring a ton of work.  My sweet mother took over it and finished the appliqueing and sewed it for me so I would be able to make my deadline.  Now I just need to get it to my quilter!!

Latest quilt

Here is the latest quilt I have been working on.  I have to say it took me the longest since each of the NY logos were machine appliqued.  All 32 of them!!!  I hope the lucky person I made this for loves it.
