WIP 08/05/2012

I haven’t made it into the craft room since the surgery; however I did get a couple of blocks made last Thursday that I can show you today. I am slowly on the mend and keep thinking that I need to start sewing something, but it is only day 5. I think I should at least wait a good week before I start over doing it. At this point sitting and typing is just about too much so I should know my limits by now! However, typing this post has exceeded my limits....ouch...just don't tell anyone I am posting....shhhhh...lol

Today I am linking up with WIP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced and @The Needle and Thread Network.  Make sure you hop on over there and see what everyone else is working on too.

Halloween Wall Hanging- this was a kit so everything is ready to be to start cutting and sewing

It’s not much of a dent, but at least I have done 3 things off the list. I might try cutting some fabric today and see how much my stitches and body complain. However, I already know that is a dumb idea...lol


  1. That is a very long May list of sewing! I hope you recover quickly from your surgery :)

  2. Whew!! you are going to be busy this month. Don't want to rush after surgery. Thank you for stopping by to comment on my WIPs;I appreciate it...love your blocks so far.

  3. You will be ver busy in May but you've got some lovely projects on the list so it will be a lot of fun.

  4. What a list of fun projects..... I hope they are fun for you ...sounds like you need to pace yourself to get them all done and look after yourself at the same time..... good luck with your list and remember to have fun
    in stitches

  5. Glad you are on the mend. I haven't sewn in almost 2 weeks too. I love your blocks, your sew happy geek QAL block looks fabulous!

  6. Lovely blocks , a very long list so take it slow and easy and let your body heal from the surgery .

  7. I always think I should recover a lot faster than I do, and by the sounds of things, you're the same. Take it easy. No one will mind if you don't post for a couple of weeks. Take it easy and look after yourself.

    The red, black and white block is my fav of the above. Am starting to think I need to do a quilt in those colours

  8. I hope you're back in tip-top shape soon. (I really like Block 5!)

  9. Take the time to heal - and perhaps use this forced break to plan your next projects? Best of luck!

  10. Great blocks! Take it easy though! :)

  11. Hi Mrs P

    I feel you really deserved this award.
