Getting Back To It

I actually wrote this post a couple of weeks ago and never got it posted because I was interupted.  Anyway-- I actually DID get this little bit of sewing accomplished while my hand was healing.  My handis almost (but not quite!) back to normal.  I still have a little pain when I try to do or lift too (which I'm sure will go away eventually) but overall it feel SO MUCH BETTER than prior to the surgery.  I'm glad I had it done.

I couldn't stand not having my hands on fabric for any longer!  I had this runner that I'd machine quilted quite a while ago but had never bound.  I managed to get the binding sewn on before I had my surgery in hopes that I'd at least be able to do some binding.  It wasn't working for quite a while.  I'd try a couple of stitches each night......  and each night I'd be able to do a few more than the day before so I just kept at it.  A couple of days ago I was finally able to do the last 18" of binding.  HURRAY!!!!!  I now consider myself ALMOST back to normal!  It's nice to get something finished! 


  1. Very pretty. So glad you are at the other end of the tunnel!

  2. Glad you are back to stitching - I can relate and it really is hard when you can only look at the project you want to work on.
