So yes, I will have hand surgery this Thursday on Lefty and 2 weeks later on Righty. This is for carpal tunnel syndrome which has been getting bad enough that I needed to do something about it.
How am I going to sew?!?
It's the thing that keeps me sane when I'm off work. Lefty wont be that bad but I'm right handed so that will eliminate a lot of what I can do. Oh well, gunna quit whinging and show you what I have been working on...
First up was the QCQAL2: Row 3. Boy that's a mouthful! Otherwise known as
Rocky Mountain Puzzle
This is the really 1st asymmetrical block I have made. Not counting improv piecing and the like, but of the traditional blocks. Keeping with my Halloween/Autumn theme I have skeletons and harvest scenes with solid orange. The centers I really should have fussycut but they were small enough I thought it didn't matter--oh well. I know now to fussycut even if I think it wont matter!
Another thing I completed this week is the zebra for Mystery Block #5. I love this little guy! The stripes were a challenge, but totally worth it. This is my favorite paper piecing block so far of the lot!
