My sports related injury bwah ha ha, has meant I spent all day in bed trying to rest it and keep the swelling to a minimum. I couldn't have picked a better day to stay in bed as the weather was horrible - wet, grey and cold.
Fortunately for me I had a bit of hand sewing I could do to keep me occupied, and also Gone With The Wind was on satellite TV which kept me amused, boy that is a looooong movie.
I had cut out the pieces for a trial Amitie Circle Game block so I spent most of the afternoon doing that. I'm really really pleased I did a trial block, as I had hardly done any hand piecing before and never curved piecing nor a circular block. Although about half way through I was thinking, yuck, I have to do this all again. I think I've worked out how to do it better next time, hopefully I'll start working on the proper block this week.
This morning I was feeling a little better, I worked at the sewing machine for 3/4 hour and sewed the bows to the boxes on the Flurry Quilt. Sorry no current photos.
I also finished another EPP star/flower and tried out some pieces to connect the flowers.
I had a big weekend planned, working on some of my projects but the universe had other plans. It feels good to have been able to work on the hand sewing, so even though I didn't finish the quantity of work I had planned, I'm really pleased with what I did accomplish.
I'm now hobbling around, and as long as I don't straighten my leg or go down stairs it's not too bad. I'll be back to
