Well this post is not about much quilting… I have been under the weather this past week with a sinus cold and didn’t get as much done as I normally do, but then my week got worse 🙁 I will be having to put finishing touches on hold for quite a bit..Let me tell you about the good stuff first…..before earning my new nickname….
This project I started purchasing last year, via a BOM from Shabby Fabrics. So every month I have been receiving a wonderful package of fabric and not working on it.. (I know what’s wrong with me)…. This Project is from Kim Schaefer’s Book “Calendar Quilts” 12 Months of Fun, Fusible Projects. This is April.. Won’t get March until March (it’s my last Block to receive). I told myself to start working on my kits and not start any NEW projects until some of my Kits are finished… I finished piecing this project last Sunday Evening. The original plan was to hand blanket stitch for finishing and make this into a banner for my home 🙁 Will be on hold now…

Here is my Wonky Block for March…I know it’s done wwwaaay early…but…. I was so excited, I started thinking about the Wonky Houses, and couldn’t help but get started on it earlier this week after work. It was so much fun…. Will be touching base with Bea via email to discuss my dilemma.

So what’s happened your wondering….
Well due to my amazing ability of missing a half step and fly among the materials in the back of the crew truck. (Sew very lucky to not impale myself with a sharp object..thank goodness)…I have earned the nickname “Tripp”. I know, it truly is a term of endearment, otherwise the guys I work with wouldn’t give me a nickname at all. 🙂
But alas, I did not getaway unscathed….
I have messed up but good.. My right hand is in half cast.. and I can’t bend my first two fingers without severe pain. The doctor told me good news is I didn’t break any bones, but the swelling is still pretty severe and he is concerned about the tendons/ligaments. Won’t know more until next Friday 🙁
Here’s a picture just before I went to the hospital…It’s kinda ugly…. I had a friend take it, with my phone, so I could compare the swelling….
So If I don’t have it cut already…I won’t be working on it. And if it isn’t a straight stitch it gonna have to be on hold… because I pretty much can’t push down or hold onto anything to support it 🙁 But I will be sewing I know it.. You won’t be able to keep me down!
Oh By the way…did I tell you that I am right handed.. Yeah.. this is so much fun… Mr Fantastic has chuckled at me a couple times trying to eat.. 🙂 Keeping a postitive attitude that all heals quickly.
Till Next Time…
PS..this took the entire battery on my laptop to type with pretty much one hand 🙂 *wink*
