Well, tomorrow is surgery number two, and I am more anxious than the first time! It is not about being nervous about the actual surgery, it is about being incapacitated for at least two weeks. I am NOT a patient patient!
The right hand improves steadily, I have more than half a hat knit.
But the fine motor control/range of motion isn't quite there yet, so this was not as successful.
I do have my February Calendar Challenge page done, not as happy with this one as January's but it is all about the process. Also never really realized that 3 of my 5 nieces and nephews were born in February.
I have decided to join the 2013 Finish-A-Long at she can quilt as motivation to get some of these UFO's off my list.
These quilts are my list of the first quarter:
A scrappy string quilt, that will be the baby quilt for hubby's new great nephew born Boxing Day
This is one of my oldest UFO's, from 2001/02. The top has been finished for a long time, but because it is all hand appliquéd I felt it deserved to be hand quilted- that never happened. All that remains to be quilted is the in the ditch around the blocks and fillers.
This is from a kit I bought while on the quilt shop hop in Las Vegas in 2011. I am looking forward to trying out some of the filler patterns I learned in a recent Free Motion Fillers class.
This is from another kit, bought at the High Prairie quilt show, I think around 2009 maybe? It also lends itself to trying different fillers inside the squares.
I have high aspirations but with the next surgery and our March vacation, I will be happy if one or two get done.
My prize post did not go as well as I hoped, I think my visitors are all shy! So Sarah you are the winner of the pin cushion. Email me with your snail mail and I will get it off to you.
