We’ve been getting used to the new normal around here after my husband’s shoulder surgery last week. The surgery went fine and he’s on the road to recovery but he’s in some pain and having difficulty sleeping on top of the frustration of not being able to do normal things like wear pants (not all that bad actually) or do dishes (bummer for me). So as I’ve been taking care of him and the pets and the kids and the house on my own, honestly by the time all the kids are in bed and pets are fed and walked I just feel like going to bed so I haven’t spent much time in my sewing room since last week. Except for when I’m working at my actual job, which has also gone a bit insane this month as well.
But I did finish a sheep in the waiting room while he was getting operated on.
I did manage to finish all the blocks for the signature quilt (upper left) and piece the borders for it (bottom). The blocks are 6″ unfinished, and the border has 2 1/2″ finished HSTs. I’ll be setting this aside until all the blocks are signed, which I’m giving a month or so.
I’ve got a couple small projects to whip out this week to get my mojo back, and then I’m going to tackle a baby quilt. I’ve got 4 more blocks to make for the rainbow 16-patch before I can piece those together into a top, and I’ve got to design the baby quilt for my niece – whichever of those happens first is up the fates at this point.
