Sliding under the rope


Having an attack of nervous pre op energy I decided to take it out on these two care quilts I started when the surgeon strike were active, and I did not know if I were coming or going.
Today I have machine quilted them and sewn bindings on, all by machine.
It was good to finish these quilts so I can start fresh when I come home from hospital.
The strip quilt was very fun to do and I have more planned in my head. They are great for using strips fast.

I wonder if you can bottle your pre-op nervous energy and save it for when you are recovering. That would be cool, wouldn't it?

Norma said...

Both quilts are beautiful! You have channeled that energy well!

Veronica said...

Great job on those quilts. Good luck with your surgery. Hurry back to blogland.

Pam said...

I wish you the very best of luck with your surgery on Monday. The quilts look great.

Mary said...

I didn't realize that your string blocks were rectangles - right? The quilts look great but I'm partial to string quilts right now!

Good luck with the surgery, I'll be thinking of you.

Shelina said...

So great that you are able to work off your nervous energy and finishing up quilts at the same time! It's horrible that you have to deal with a surgeon's strike while you are waiting for surgery. I wish you the best while you are waiting, and during the surgery and through the recovery period.

Dear Hanne, I am just catching up with you after being off-line for 2 weeks, all the ups and downs and stress. Such good news for you that the stike is resolved and you can move forward as planned and in the meantime you found a perfect venting place for the stress and created some wonderful comfort quilts.

Cheers!

Evelyn
