Jeff, the Body Mechanic or Why I’m Walking Again

Hi Everyone!

This week’s post is a pay it forward post about Jeff, the Body Mechanic or Why I’m Walking Again.  This is the guy who got me from hobbling and limping to walking and dancing when the docs didn’t know what else to do.  Lyric Kinard went to see him for a chronic injury, and he helped her so much, she wrote about him in her blog.

How does he do it?  Can he help me, you ask?  I will quote him and yes, he can help you.  Of course, you have to do the exercises and do what he says, but you heal and get better if you do!

Here’s what he has to say:

 “Do you have an injury that just doesn‘t seem to heal? Perhaps you injured your knee or ankle or shoulder long ago. You went to the doctor, got X-Rays or maybe an MRI, got a diagnosis for your injury, and were given a prescription for anti-inflammatory/pain meds and a referral to someone to help fix your condition. Then you followed a regimen of exercise and stretching for a while. Yet, still, the condition remains.”

Want to read more? It’s all here in his article: 

Why Your Pain Has Not Gone Away

And that’s all I’m going to say, except if you want an appointment with him, email him with my name in the subject line, so you jump to the top of the list.  He’s so busy and so good, you’d have to wait months otherwise.  I don’t get anything for recommending him.  I just want to spread the word about this amazing healer.  Here’s his email:

The post about Finding Your Voice got a lot of comments on Linked In in the Quilting Enthusiasts group which I belong to.  Lots of art quilters are trying to find their voice in the medium of quilting.  If you find yourself wondering about where you are in your journey of quilting, take a look at this video I made about the 5 Stages of an Art Quilter’s Development.  I posted it last week, but you may have missed it 🙂

Here’s the video, and please share with your quilting friends.  And don’t forget to tell me what stage you are in in the comments!

5 Stages of an Art Quilter’s Development

Did You Know?

That I am on Pinterest?  Did you know that there are many amazing art quilts and traditional quilts being pinned every day, just waiting for you to look at?  

Never before has so much inspiration been in one place.  It’s like having an art museum in your hands.  If you haven’t checked it out, there are many, many types of things being pinned.

 It’s super easy to get started.  You can take a look at my pins, which are organized on different “boards” HERE.  Once you are on that page, you can click on the Get Started Button to make your own page on Pinterest.  Then start pinning!  I can spend a lot of time on Pinterest, because it’s all visual.  And I have a feeling, you will too!   


And don’t forget, I make custom commissions too! Read what my client Glenda had to say about her custom commission experience:

“Normally, I would be anxious about commissioning someone to do a work of art such as this. However, I felt a connection to you when Leigh showed me your work. It resonated with me and when I met you, you seemed almost a personification of your work. I immediately felt comfortable with you and knew that what you would create would be stunning. And it is!”
