Biding Time...

I've been looking for things I can do with my right hand (and a little help from the fingers on my left hand) and decided I could prep the September Afternoon Delight blocks for applique. Hopefully I'll be able to do some hand stitching soon. 
I also managed to complete my paint by number that I started about 2 years ago (I had lost interest in it almost right away). It's not the most creative way to spend one's time, but the more I worked on it these last few weeks, the more I enjoyed it--kind of mindless fun and kept me occupied..... 
....but, not occupied enough to keep me from doing some on line shopping. I splurged on a half yard bundle of Judie Rothermel's latest line of fabric, Coming to America. I don't have any plans for the fabric, but just had to have it! I can't wait until I can't start sewing again!

September One Monthly Goal


The night before my wrist surgery I was looking for something to occupy myself and ended up marking all of the squares and rectangles for Butter Butterscotch by Linda Koenig.
Because of the screws in my hand (feels more like ice picks!), any pressure I put on it is pretty painful, but I think I can push fabric through my sewing machine--maybe not right away but later in September. 
My One Monthly Goal for September is to get all 348 triangles sewn. I don't think I will be able to square everything up though. My instructions are to NOT push, pull, or lift anything over one pound. It's hard to know if pushing down on a ruler to square up a half square triangle exerts more than one pound of pressure, so until I get the okay from the doctor, I best avoid it!
