October 29, 2008 - I can cut!

As of a week ago, I am able to rotary cut fabric! It was a long 4 weeks with no quilting. I am soooo happy to be reconnected with my fabric : )

It took me a week to cut these 96 pieces, one layer of fabric at a time. I am still regaining strength in my right hand. The pieces are for a mystery quilt I am making. I'll post each step as I finish.

October 8, 2008 - The stitches are out!

Yesterday I had the stitches removed from my wrist and got a removable splint! I can shower! I can drive! Not sure I am ready to quilt : - (

I start physical therapy tomorrow and will get a high tech splint with Velcro. I am hoping that gives me more wiggle room and maybe I will be able to sew sooner rather than later.

October 2, 2008 - Dreaming...

It's been hard to be home and not able to sew. I have so many ideas floating in my head. Today's mail brought yardage from the American Primer line. I already have a charm pack and now have yardage to with it. Just need my wrist to heal and I'll be back at the machine.
