Adding to Stash and Neck Update

I've been adding to my stash with the hopes of quilting sooner than later and I've found some really fun pieces too.  The Family Guy fabric will be pillowcases for my sons and the cording is intended for a fabric bowl which I've never done but thanks goodness for YouTube right.  Some neutrals at a great price and the tin box contains Quilt Dots.
News in regards to the pain in the neck (and I'm not referring to anyone I know),  I met with the pain specialist and I now have a plan of attack.  What I've learnt in all of this is that I'm getting older and my body is starting to reflect this...how did this getting older happen!

I've gone back to doing some wool work and knitting with not being able to do very much sewing.  I put in an SOS to Sweet P with my problems with wool applique, what threads one can use, etc.
It's slow but sure and the project is from a kit I bought years ago and let me tell you the wool is horrible, frays something awful even after prepping it the way they stated.
I do like knitting these socks and I'm still amazed that I can actually do this. Knitting was never my forte and the fact that I prefer ankle socks definitely saves on the yarn.

Happy Tuesday everyone.
