….But Sewing I managed to still do…….SLOW… but Loved it anyway…..
I needed a distraction and I got it! Thank you Mrs Pickles!!!!
This morning she posted that she needed a new member for one of her bees, and I was excited to get to join!
I was sitting in the living room catching up on this bee information and icing my hand when I started to read about the blocks that would need to be done to catch up. Low and behold one of them was using 2 ½ inch strips… I already have quite a few scrap 2 ½ inch strips pre-cut from all my old scraps…an ongoing scrap project that I am building a stash for… So only had to do cross cuts.. Left handed rotary 101 is what I taught myself today… Can’t keep this quilter down….*giggle* After quite a bit of finagling I managed to get both blocks cut and am pleased to announce that I even got them sewn together today. I took lots of breaks and it took close to 8 hours to make two 12 ½ inch blocks… Normally I would have them done in at the most 2 hours, but HEY I didn’t want to just sit and do nothing on my Saturday Sewing Day…*Wink*
Here’s Mrs Pickles January Block & siggy block
Here’s Danielle’s February Block & siggy block
My Mr Fantastic was awesome and signed my siggy blocks for me…so now I just need address for February block Host and I can mail these off on Monday. I am SO excited to be part of another bee.
Off to dinner……then Ice the hand and to read some more of your blogs. Thanks for the well wishes. I have found that the ergonomic keyboard we have on our Desktop computer is much easy to use… I only have problems with the M & N keys… HAHA
Till Next Time…
