For the past week my left thumb has looked like hamburger and I have been out of sewing commission! No hand stitching or sewing machine for me! Who knew you needed a thumb to thread a needle, put in a bobbin, or line up fabric!! I couldn't even hold the wool pieces together to stitch...the slightest pressure brought discomfort!
So what was a quilter to do? Well...I could still iron, draw and cut...so I prepped blocks...LOTS of blocks!
This is what I have got ready for stitching...a wee strawberry bowl filler..and last night I was actually able to put a few stitches into the leaves before giving up...(yup, baby steps!)
BOM...Bee-utiful by Pam Morgan (for Moda Bakeshop). I changed the cat into a dog...:o))
And block two of BEE-utiful!
I also prepped Cheri Payne's newest BOM from her Facebook Page! It's called 'Blackbird Gatherings' and it is going to be a winner...I just know it! The house is a bit too dark and the windows don't pop but I kind of like it that way. (code for~ I'm too lazy to change it!:o))
So that means that I am technically working on FOUR different BOM! YIKES! Now that's a first! I usually do one BOM at a time! I sure hope I can keep up!
My sewing room is spotless and everything is in it's place. There are no dust bunnies visiting...I have organized my wool, my threads are all wound and put away neat and tidy...everything is WAITING..
My perle cotton and Valdani all in its place...(I need to find a bigger cabinet!)And my wool threads are about as organized as I can get them...
Yup...we are ready and waiting...
I might just mess up that sewing room today and give that thumb a run for it's money...but the TV will stay off...
Have a FUN Friday and Happy Stitching!~P
