And then it was hazy.
Yes, hazy is what I've been. You see, I caught a bug. A really nasty one. And now I have something called viral arthritis which basically means that my joints hurt - a lot!
I've been told I just have to wait it out. Which could take weeks!
So in the meantime there's not been much sewing. *sad*
But I do have something to show... something I finished up before the virus.
Introducing Pink Rainbows aka Scrappy Pinks 2:
(You can see from the sky in the background that it's been raining a LOT here lately).
This little quilt was really easy to make - turns out I have a lot of pink scraps!
I indulged in some free motion stippling, my absolute favourite type of quilting. I really should be a bit braver and try out new designs...
For the back I used up a yard of a really sweet lavender fabric from Annette Tatum which I've been hoarding for at least a couple of years:
I took it out and put it back on the shelves. Then pulled it out again. Pretty fabric is meant to be used, right? There wasn't quite enough of it, so I pieced it with another print. And I quite like the result actually :-)
I feel perhaps that my hands are recovered enough to be able to handle a little bit of easy sewing soon. I've been itching to get to my sewing machine. It's no fun being on sick leave and not being able to sew! I might try a small project or two ...
Hope everyone stays happy and healthy!
