I was forbidden to use any sort of machine that would cause vibration in my wrist until yesterday, June 9th. Forbidden may be too strong. What he actually said was:
"I don't want you using any weed whacker or chain saw for the next three weeks. Any thing that will cause vibratory stimulus. That is bad for the ulnar nerve."
Yesterday, June 9th, was three weeks. So, after I had coffee, an orange, rode the Vita Master for 37 (count them) minutes, walked the dogs, cleaned the dog pen and did the morning word Jumble, I decided that I should just AT LEAST TRY the Nolting
It intimidates me. Or, I am afraid of it. I had a discussion with myself as I walked the dogs.
""You should try it today."
"I know, but I am afraid."
"Of what? You certainly are not going to roll the thing off of the frame again."
"I know. I just am afraid of it."
"Oh, for Heaven's Sake, GET OVER IT."
I had started the scrappy quilt three weeks ago. I cheated, I admit it. But I really didn't think that the Nolting had the same vibratory stimulus as a week whacker or a chain saw. I stopped because my wrist did get sore. Oh, it got sore today, but two hours of quilting is A LOT.
I finished it. It is a practice quilt. I tried different designs and decided that I need more work on the swirl doodle.
Organic it is.
Angela Walters. I bought one of her Craftsy classes. I have been practicing on the white board. She teaches how to do a feather using a swirl as the base. Clearly my swirls need work.
It was fun. I am glad I got over myself and just dug in. My wrist needs more wrest, but in time I think I will improve. Practice helps.
