Good to be sewing again..

Yes indeed, I am back, though not managing any hand sewing as yet. Who would have thought a sprained wrist and thumb could be so painful. I have given the hand a complete rest, in fact I took it on holiday up to London for a long weekend and did no sewing at all.. Well it was our lovely son and daughter-in-law who took us up to London for a Mother's day weekend..

This is what greeted us on our return. Our young Plum tree full of blossoms so it looks like we shall have a good crop this year, the tree is only three years old.

My friend Jan was turning out and discarding fabric scraps, and you know me  and scraps. Well we have four more slab blocks to send to little island quilting for her wonderful project for Mexican Street children. I think she is on quilt 15 now.

I have also done this months Siblings Together 2  charity blocks. They were quite fun to make  although the first one went wrong.

No problem, I shall wad it and back it and quilt it and then send it with the others to little island quilting.

Now today, to get on with the The Quilt Show Alphabet BOM for this month, though as I am doing it in Red and Beige should my sheep in this months be Red or Beige? Watch this space, a nice fetching Pink may be the order of the day.

It feels good to be sewing again though I have not ventured anything other than straight stitching, and then only with my brace on.

I did design some nice cushions from the little drawing I put up last time, but they can wait for another day.

Keep safe and keep stitching........... Doti...
