Retail Therapy

There's nothing like a little retail therapy to pick a girl's spirit up.  I've been down in the dumps, not really knitting anything at all for more than 6 weeks now.  When the going gets tough, the tough go shopping!  Even better when it's online!!

I ordered something last Wednesday and it arrived on Friday.  Speedy delivery, right Mr. Rogers??
Any guesses about what's inside???  

Oh, I'm quite certain you'd never guess this: 

Since I really can't cut or use a rotary cutter right now, I figure this AccuQuilt Go! will fit the bill.  I've been kicking around the idea for a while now and when JoAnn Fabrics had it on sale with free shipping, I jumped.  Now of course, I'll need more dies and I'm already looking around for those.  I tried it out over the weekend and it cut squares and 1/2 squares beautifully.  I even tried it on felted wool and it worked marvelously.  Maybe now I can get going on something creative.

I start my physical therapy tomorrow and I'm looking forward to that.  My neurologist called me today to say the xrays looked fairly good.  Hmmm.  But then he asked me if I have a problem swallowing.  As a matter of fact I do, I said, why do you ask??  Seems there is some tissue around my vertebrae that he thinks I need a CT scan to check it out.  I'll do that once I'm done with my therapy.  One problem at a time!
