Hmm. What to do when I feel the need to sew but my right wrist is injured and I'm not really supposed to use it?
After some thought I set myself some rules. Only sewing straight lines so I wasn't rotating my wrist, and no pinning, cutting or pressing so I wasn't putting any pressure on my wrist. Then I sat down at my sewing machine to play a little.
Over at Sew Mama Sew they're doing a series curated by Jessica Skultety from Quilty Habit where people are talking about their favourite quilts, so I decided it might be fun to join in.
My favourite quilt is usually either the one I'm currently working on, or the one I've most recently finished. So I think because I'm really happy with the way it turned out, my favourite quilt right now is the quilt I just completed, that I made for my Grandmother.
Right, so where were we? Ah, the quilting and the big reveal.
So I was all impatient to see what was inside(like unwrapping a present) but before I could cut out the top layer and see if my Hammer Of Glory had worked I needed to stabilise the quilt to make sure everything would stay where it was supposed to. So I stitched in the ditch between each block, and over the outline of the Hammer a couple more times to be sure until finally I was ready to cut it open and see what was inside.
I'm very excited because this is my very first Mashaa Monday.
And I'm already breaking the rules by doing it on a Wednesday!
I actually had intended this for yesterday, because the public holiday on the real Monday confused me and I thought yesterday was Monday for a while. I'm a doofus. :P
