Design Wall Monday–July 16, 2012

Just a few more blocks completed.  One block has some of the sashing attached  on two sides, just to give an idea of what that will look like.

The background fabric blends into the design wall, so I took another shot against a darker background.

There are a few blocks just started, or with some pieces added on, but generally not much progress. Certainly not as much as I would have liked. 

Excuse of the week:  My doctor says that I have some unpronounceable  thing which translates into…….get ready for it….tennis elbow.  As anyone who knows me can tell you, using my name and tennis elbow in the same sentence is funny, not just very funny, but laugh- so- hard –you –cry –and –otherwise-dampen-yourself funny!

Actually, as with so many of these things, it is a repetitive motion problem, quite uncomfortable, and flairs up each time I think I well enough to do more handwork. DRAT!  So, I have been trying to rest it and follow the other instructions I was given. Not at all happy about losing my momentum with this project.

Head on over to Patchwork Times and get inspired by what many talented quilters are doing.

You mean laugh so hard no sound comes out!

As always, your work is beautiful, TE or not.

I have had tennis elbow and don't play tennis, either! LOL. but heed your doc's advice and rest it! whatever the repetitive motion is that makes it hurt, don't do it! I did not listen and kept on going which made it worse and worse. It took over a year for it to finally go away.
