Stalled!

It's bad enough that work gets in the way of sewing 

time.....

But when you don't have use of your left hand 





yes...I'm left-handed.....

the options are limited!

Here are a pin cushion and needle case 


I made earlier.... 


 I must have impressed MrPnP....


he thought I'd bought them!

I'm planning on using this vintage sheet.... 


on the back of this modern solids quilt, 


and admiring my neglected clamshells.

Thankfully I can type one handed.....



Hopefully, I'll be out of this cast soon AND finished 

the reports!

Happy days!

  3. Oh my! That does look uncomfortable - what have you been doing to yourself? I hope it gets better soon and so you can make good use of the Xmas hols. Your husband is right - the pincushion and needle case look very professional indeed!

  4. What bad timing, esp with the school holidays approaching. Hoping your hand/wrist heals quickly so you can get back to some crafty fun xx

  6. I can't wait for those clamshells. They are so fun. But you must relax and heal. In the mean time enjoy new things and when you come back I bet you'll be rejuvenated and inspired.

  8. OUCH! My left hand is the only one under my control. I can't even imagine not being able to use it.

  9. I love the fussy cutting on the pincushion and needlecase. That fabric is perfect for it. And the backing for the modern quilt is just the right colors.
    Wishing you a speedy recovery - I know it is usually when I can't work on things that the ideas and desire flow the most.

  11. Hmm... so being one handed doesn't get you out of school? Well that sucks. I love that vintage sheet with the modern quilt - the colours are perfect and the juxtaposition of the modern and vintage is perfect. I can't help but think that little goldfish looks a bit depressed, I think he needs a friend. Hopefully the hand is improving...?

  12. That opening photograph just about says it all--such frustration for you, a woman who works with her hands constantly, both in teaching/grading and in creating. I hope the next few weeks will provide a silver lining to this cloud in some way.

    I have been feeling stalled since our last trip, and appalled to find this notice of your blog posting deep in my email box--I am so sorry I didn't comment earlier, but hopefully now I'll be getting on top of things. When do you get your wrapping off? What's the end date for this confinement? I hope it's before Christmas!
