This week was a little off with the holiday and other things happening, unrelated to quilting. I planned to get a post done on Wednesday, but spent the day at the Twins game on Tuesday (it was hot and the game was long) so I had nothing to post about.
Now that Friday is here, I thought I’d introduce you to a new, hopefully temporary, member of our household. Meet Fred.
Fred and I are getting to know each other. I’m not sure I like him much. He’s a bit cumbersome and messes with my fashion statement.
Back in April (yes, April) I sprained my ankle while we were in New Mexico. We did all the things you should do for a sprain, except go to the doctor (because we thought it was just a bad sprain, y’know?). This week, 4 months later, I decided I should ask the doctor why the swelling wasn’t going away and find out what stretches I should be doing now that it felt good enough that I should be able to start my daily walking again. I came home with Fred and a possible fractured fibula. Another doctor appointment next Tuesday. Thankfully, it’s not my sewing foot! I’m not sure if this is Friday Fun, so let’s move on to the fun part.
When I have been doing some sewing, it’s been mostly secret sewing. Here’s a peek at the fabric I’m playing with. This little project will be for the 12 Days of Christmas in July Blog Hop, which starts on July 14th. Watch for my post on July 17. I hope you’ll stop by and see what I’ve been working on.
When I have deadlines and I get overwhelmed, I start a whole new project, totally unrelated to anything. Do you do that? Please say yes. Here’s what I decided to start on over the weekend, thinking I could get it done in a day or two. I’m itching to finish it, but it needs to wait for now. You may need your sunglasses, this fabric is bright!
Stay tuned, friends. Fred and I will be back soon. I expect he’ll be around for awhile. We’ll see!
Enjoy your weekend! I hope it’s full of stitching!
