Allietare In the Midst of Mayhem

I’ve had a number of challenges in the past week that go beyond the basic “super busy at holiday time” stuff.  My left wrist (and I’m left-handed) started hosting a familiar sharp pain on Wednesday or so last week.  I gave it a few days to see if it would heal itself, but alas, the tendinitis meant that I need to put my brace on.  Although it’s feeling better after 3 days in the brace now, it’s difficult to rotary cut and press at the proper angle.

On top of that, my regular sewing machine has developed a horrendous squeak.  It’s not in the bobbin area so there’s no real oiling I can do that would fix it.  Time to send her off to the spa during the exact two weeks I wanted to really finish up some projects since I have off from work. Sigh.

I do have my back-up Featherweight, though, so she’s on my table and working to finish up Step 4 of the Allietare Mystery from Bonnie Hunter.  I’m about half done given all the speed bumps I’ve had, and hope to finish them up later on Monday.

  1. I really like your colors. This block alone almost makes me want to join in on this mystery. … must … resist … more … temptations … many … UFOs … calling …

  2. Above all the ailments, good job on these blocks! Your color combo has high contrast, I can’t wait to see how your quilt will end up being.

  3. Before my big machine died, I used to switch between machines as well. Glad to see that yourJanome being in the shop has not slowed you down much.
