Tomorrow morning I'm having carpel-tunnel surgery on my right hand (I'm right handed). I'm trying to prepare for being incapacitated for a week.
I know I won't be able to cut fabric, but I might be able to sew. So I've been cutting fabric like crazy.
Saturday, at work, I trimmed some half-square triangle squares, making that project all ready to sew together.
Today I finished sewing the rows together on my Wallflower quilt (kit). I folded it up and put it away - I still need to make a back for it.
After walking the dogs in Lincoln Park and lunch out with the DH I started cutting up fabric for the Dandy Flowers quilt that I discovered online. It was a quilt-along, but I didn't participate at the time. I've been gathering fabrics and thinking about it.
I bought the fabrics for the stems and leaves at Missouri Star Quilts in Missouri last week. Still thinking about what color to make the butterflies.
