HARLEQUIN FELTWORKS: Model: Amber Wrap: Harlequin Feltworks Makeup & Hair: Kenya Aissa for Ruby Envy Photo: Moja Ma’at
This, my latest wrap, is the culprit behind my pulled pectoral muscle.
It is important to stretch out before large projects and I am guilty of carrying more than a reasonable amount of stress lately getting ready for upcoming events. This pulled muscle has grounded me for today, so that I can recuperate. If it were not for Advil and hot baths, I would be in much worse shape.
Felting is a full-body activity and one should approach the physicality of the medium with care. This injury has definitely taught me to pace myself and I hope I will have the full use of my left arm again if I can be careful to not over-exert it in the future.
Still, today was a good day for catching up editing the images from the last shoot. It is a good feeling to have current images of recent work, especially when working with such a talented team!
