I'm actually posting on my blog and yes, it *has* been over a month. I remember Carrie once saying that you know you haven't blogged in ages when you go to Typepad and you actually have to log in again!
I'm sorry that it's been so long - I finally finished a grueling stunt sewing project that I can't share, and as anxious as I was to get started on something new after finishing that, I discovered my wrist injury won't allow me to do much rotary cutting, so I'm a little stuck for now. Did you know that they can't really offer any options to heal a partially torn ligament? I got a cortisone injection in my wrist last Wednesday and I'm hoping it will offer me at least some relief. Better to tear the ligament completely - I'll have to remember to go for the gusto next time, although I can't even pinpoint how I did this in the first place back in December. Yes, I have been in pain for 5 months.
I also moved offices at work. Now we only moved up one floor in the same building, but it may as well have been across town, because we still had to pack everything. My new space had no furniture in it and I was holding my breath all weekend, hoping I would have an actual desk when I got in to unpack on Monday. I have a desk - smaller than what I had downstairs, but I'm thinking with less work surface, I'll have fewer piles of papers on my desk. One can hope, anyway. My new cubicle is smaller, but because I have smaller furniture, everyone thinks my new space is bigger. I aim to keep the new space uncluttered so I can enjoy the quilts hanging in my space. Yes - I have room to hang quilts! Just looking at them while I'm working on my spreadsheets makes me smile.
Now on to the good stuff. I've been wanting to make this wallhanging for a long time - ever since I first saw it posted on Messy Karen's blog last fall. I love the way this turned out with Moda's Authentic fabrics. I used 2 charm packs. I ran out of black but luckily, I was able to find a third charm pack online.
Next, I'm putting the borders on a Hunky Dory baby quilt that I'm making for my niece who is due to arrive later this month. Almost finished with that one!
Oh and one last thing before I forget - my friend Perry has a raffle going on her blog to support Cystic Fibrosis - please buy some tickets to support this worthy cause and oh yes - you could win one of two beautiful quilts!
