Quilting with physical challenges?
OK guys...this summer I was trying to quilt while suffering from extremely blurred vision and numb hands caused by 9 courses of chemo (Abraxane). I was in a minor panic that I would be this way permanently. While my hands are still numb, I'm glad to say that my vision is back.
While working with this, someone said to me that having a physical challenge might just change my work, "inform" it...like Henri Matisse did when he switched to paper cut outs when He could no longer paint.
I got to thinking this might be a good topic for an article which hopefully would give people who were recently struggling with a disability hope.
Do you know a quilter or are you a quilter who quilts despite physical challenges? If so, how has your work changed? What suggestions do you have? How do your work around it?
Love to hear from you, either here or privately. Thanks so much! Lisa
