The saying goes that time flies when one is having fun, and I might add that time flies when one has a lot to do.
The to do list has been dominant here, but I am having a good time too, with my improving health and with needle and thread.
I am keeping my physiotherapist busy every other day, and I am doing exercises daily at home. It is paying off with increasing strength and energy, but it takes time and can not be rushed.
You must think I have something going with red and white these days ;-)
These small stitcheries I got as a gift for Christmas. I did 2 right away and now the other 2 are done too.
The sayings are, from top left:
* It is Christmas again - the pig
* You and me and dompappen. (A red breasted sparrow we see in winter) It is a phrase from a song.
* Have you been good this year - the Santa (Nisse in Norwegian)
* Make a snowman
I will put the stitcheries away in my BOB (box of blocks) for now, but plan to do another set of 4 before Christmas, so I can make ourselves some Christmas placemats.
I have been hand quilting on the Watermelon quilt too and it is slowly moving forward. I can see the half done mark soon - within a week or so - yeah !
Another Nearly Insane block is done and another one is in the making. The blocks are 6" finished and I have not done any of the really difficult ones yet. I need to get the count up a bit more first ;-)
Some of these blocks have a gazillion pieces in them.
