I’ve been so busy lately with the book project, I have barely been able to breathe, let alone get much sewing done. I did whip up some little coasters out of extra laminated cotton I had lying around, but of course gave them away before I took any pictures. Why do I do that to myself?
The wall quilt is slowly coming along. And I do mean slowly. I have to fit it into my schedule in 20-30 minutes increments simply because all the handwork is incredibly hard on my injured neck. I’m trying really had not to trigger muscle spasms again. It happened a few weeks ago when I spent about an hour hand-stitching and then was in so much pain I had to spend the rest of the evening on my back in the middle of the living room floor. No fun.
Slow and steady wins the race, though, right? I sure hope so!
I ran across a couple of blogs that I’ve seen before, but had somehow forgotten about. I’m including them here, just in case you don’t know them or perhaps forgot about them, too.
Sew Take a Hike has lovely pics and nice tutorials.
Pile o’ Fabric has really great information, especially for new sewists. This links to her Piecing 101 guide, but she’s got plenty more.
And the incomparable Kim Werker who isn’t afraid to put it out there and get some hackles raised.
