I would like to share with you my newest, most favorite tool in my sewing room (after the sewing machine that is).
What is it, you ask? It's a rocking footstool. What for? you ask. Because this little humble thing eliminates leg cramps in the middle of the night. Yes!! I sleep sooooooo well now. I haven't had restless legs in a week. I vaguely remember one grandmother or the other or maybe a great grandmother had one of those and I suddenly decided I wanted one. Here's what I did.
Some wooden boards (I used parts of an old drawer), some foam, a stapler for wood and some fabric to cover it up all nice and pretty. That's all. I made the circle with the help of a plate, and of course, DH is behind this too. It wouldn't look that sturdy if I had made it ALL by myself lol. My stool is 6" high X 20" wide X 9" deep but you can make it any size you wish.
(Standing on end because it's hard to take a picture when its on the floor.)
Whenever I am sitting down with some hand sewing project, my feet rock the nasty leg pains away. The movement improve blood circulation in the legs and the result is a peaceful night. It is so wonderful, I just had to share with you all.
I'll be back later or tomorrow with something quilting, promise.
Until then ... ;^)
