Ah it is work in progress Wednesday and I had hoped to have some new fun things in the pipeline but instead I am dealing with this…
Ah yes 2013 is kind of kicking my butt at the moment. This small set back has limited some of my quilting activities, but has not stopped me completely. This week I have:
1. Made a bee block for Ashley at Wasn’t Quilt in a Day. Ashley requested the converging corners block in bright colours.
2. I have finished up the last of my fussy cut squares for Amanda at What the Bobbin.
3. I am finishing up a block for a top-secret project.
4. I have been slowly adding to my hexagon quilt. In a strange twist of fate it is easier for me to machine piece at the moment than hand piece!
In the last 9 months nothing has stopped me quilting not a slipped disk in my neck, nerve damage in my right arm, laparoscopic surgery or now a torn tendon in my left arm. I am either determined or crazy… or maybe a little bit of both!

Wow, that’t determination. All of your projects are lovely, but I so admire those hexies. They are just darling.
Thanks. I look at the hexies as a labor of love that may take me FOREVER to finish.
Ouch! Hope you get better soon. I love your fussy cut blocks especially the circus tent.
Ouch. Hope you feel better soon. I love your fussy cut squares especially the circus one!
You know I love those hexies – the ants, the music, and the fussy cuts on the diamond/squares – the lady bugs. adorable. BUT, we all know I am loving that converging corners block! love ALL of those colors! love the pearl bracelets – and that fuchsia leave print, and the orange is one of my all time favs that i don’t own! so can’t wait to make this quilt. and, you are on dedicated and determined quilter!!! keep on, my friend!
awwwww, dang! SO sorry about the setback. Hope it heals quickly! Good for you for getting it done anyway!
Well done for persevering! Sorry though to hear of the struggles 😦
Yowza, that doesn’t look good! Hope you’re outta that thing soon 🙂
Yikes! I hope it gets better quickly!
I keep thinking that it can’t get worse but the universe seems to have a wicked sense of humor. Lol.
I clicked “like” not for your poor hand but the amazing things you’ve managed to do even so. Look after yourself. the log cabin looks interesting, I can’t imagine how you hand sewed those hexies?
I am doing everything very slowly. I am not a patient person but boy am I learning to let go.
Your hexie quilt looks amazing – there are some fab fabrics in there! Keep plugging away, you’re an inspiration :o)
This is looking pretty good for one arm! You are making me look bad with two over here:) Hope you heal quick though. Lovely blocks.
I love your passion, hope all becomes well soon…
Goodness! That sounds like a lot of pain for one year! I hope that you are on the mend really soon! I’m impressed you’ve managed so much loveliness amidst all that!
Determined and crazy? Glad I am not the only one out there! What a great combination! You are sure to go places with those tendencies. Sorry to hear you are still being troubled with yet another set back. Praying you will heal quickly.
Thanks for your kind thoughts. I like the idea do being a little crazy – I think most quilters are a little mad. Particularly any one who makes 2 inch blocks, hand piece their quilts or do curves of any sort. LOL.
Nothing stops you!! Sorry, I’m horrible at commenting – I get your posts through email and I always forget to go back. Anyway, I love the colors/fabrics you have chosen, too! And thanks for the sweet and creative comment on my blog!
!!! You’re more productive with a hurt hand than I am just normal-sauce. Love your converging corners block. I’m starting to get jealous of Ashley’s quilt, and it’s not even made up yet.
Her quilt is going to be awesome… Though I had resist the urge to put something in middle of the big white square center. My husband wanted to draw in the center but I stopped him.
Wow! All of it looks good. Your fussy cut squares look so cute. I need to get mine done soon!
Aa…ah you poor soul you really have had a hard time! Take it easy and recover well! Enjoy all those other aspects of quilting that you can do while resting up!! Just loving those hexagons and Ashley’s block is gorgeous! Wishing you a speedy recovery. Marie x
Hope you have a quick recovery. Get well soon!
Well I like your determination and style. I hope this is the last of the curve-balls from 2013 for you. B
I’m loving the hexies. Hope you cang0t0b%, or on 🙂
