A throi for the carch!

The home straight! 
The hand stitched binding...
The top stitching ...
The ta dah moment!  I'm really pleased with it. I used it last night to keep me warm while I zapped my sore neck with my Dr TENS machine. My neck is very sore after spending Sunday bent over hand sewing.
You attach the sticky pads to the affected area then choose the frequency of electric current to course through your muscles. It really is good.

The other thing I used when I went to bed is Zen natural linament.

Zen Liniment helps relieve

  • Muscle pain
  • Arthritis and rheumatism
  • Minor sporting Injuries
  • Joint pain

So it is a finish of sorts, although the hard work was already done for me.  It did challenge me to work out the best way to do it.  I think if I ever finish that strip quilt top, I'll be getting someone to do the rest for me!

Finally, my inspiration for the throw - Kath and Kim!
Our spring weather has gone and its crisp here this morning after some good rain last night.

Cheers - Joolz xx



  1. The throw looks great! I love my TENS. I probably should have had it on my back last week.

  2. What a lovely lap Quilt you have been busy on the week end and well worth it too.

  3. Ha ha, I was wondering what 'a throi for the carch' was! I thought your iPad was like mine and always changing the spelling. I have to check everything I write when using it. The throw is looking good though.

    1. Chel, you can change your iPad - go into Settings, into General, go down to Keyboard and turn off Auto Correction. That way it wont try and interpret what you want to say

    2. Thanks for that tip, Joolz. It is a real pain having to check everything,

  4. That looks great, nice job, I nearly had to google! But the last picture made it all clear. :D

  5. thank goodness you finally got that binding done..............I was a little concerned........

  6. Haha, love your title! Great work on your throw.

  7. Your throw is beautiful. I can just imagine what that show is like, I think I'd enjoy watching it.

  8. Haha, I love Kath and Kim, I quote those two all the time! I had them in mind when I read the title :) The throi looks great Joolz :)
