OKay, let's back up a minute and start at the beginning...
I have been complaining of a sore left shoulder for more years than I care to mention, and it has been getting increasingly worse. Each trip to the chiropractor confirms that my left shoulder is both out of alignment and in a good deal of muscle spasm. Being that our beloved Dr. Ingliss is married to a good friend of mine and fellow stitcher, he kindly and repeatedly informs me that it is most definitely from holding my stitchy WIP, while I work.
With this in mind, I have given a good year's worth of thought to a floor stand, which would serve to alleviate the need to hold a WIP, as well as allow me the freedom to use both hands to stitch, a win win, right?
Well, this past week, after much thought and research I bought myself a treat...yes, dear friend, I am now the proud owner of a floor stand, and I looooove it!
The stand that I purchased is from Michael's and is a Frank A. Edmunds & Co. brand, with a price tag of $40, right in my budget! The entire body is adjustable and it is a dream to stitch on.
I have to admit that my shoulder is not aching, and my needle is smoking with the increased speed of my stitches, now that I have both hands free.
