Quilting and Tendonitis Don’t Mix

I want to hand quilt OH so much!  Hand quilting helps me relax, and I need that right now.  I started a new job, Christmas is coming, lots to do, and I want to sit and stitch my evenings away.

BUT…

tennis.elbowI have tendonitis in my left arm. They call it “Tennis Elbow,” but I call it “Quilter’s Elbow.”  It’s the arm that goes underneath my hoop (left) while my right hand does the stitching.  It hurts like the dickens!

 

 

I’m putting Biofreeze on it, taking Tylenol, got a splint at the drug store that I’m wearing, but nothing is helping enough.

Help!
