Slowly does it...

Unfortunately, I did not make a lot of progress working on this baby quilt this week.  This past Sunday, I hurt my left wrist playing golf.  I think it was about 6 years ago that I was quite a regular on the golf course, admittedly I was not great, but I enjoyed it.  So ever since my husband started playing recently I wanted to take it up again.  I guess I was far to eager to get back into it, and did not warm up properly...


So I've been working at a snails pace, quilting really small sections at a time.  I am using Machingers quilting gloves, which helps a lot with gripping, but because I keep my hands parallel to the needle,  and the angle at which my hand sits on the quilt, I cant quilt for too long.


At least I had finished all the large blocks with stippling and the white sashing with circles.  This morning it feels a tad bit better, so I will see how it goes today, it is so frustrating when all I want to do is carry on, hopefully before the week is over all will be as it should be, and I can carry on.


Thanks for stopping by, for my regular readers and those who link up on my 'Anything Goes' linky party, thanks so much for taking part, its always a treat seeing what everyone is up to, and for all comments.  

Happy quilting.

Sorry to hear you hurt your wrist. As much as you want to work on this sweet quilt, I do hope you will try your best to give it time to heal and not overdo it! We want you to be good as new!

The stippling and circles look super. This will give you time to decide just exactly what you want to do in the other blocks....

Hi Marelize, I have just discovered your blog, so nice to see a Fellow South African with such a nice crafty blog!! Your quilting is amazing!! What machine do you use? I am really battling with mine, it is a Bernette 92C, and it really battles with bulky seams, and of course the throat is tiny! I would love for you to let me know renesharp@telkomsa.net, and here is the link to my blog http://www.stampinginsunnysa.blogspot.com.

Smiles,
Rene'

Your quilting is BEAUTIFUL!!!! Sorry about your wrist:( I hurt my thumb a few months back and it won't heal properly. It keeps popping. My handwriting is a mess these days because of it. Glad to see your wrist didn't mess with the beauty of your FMQ.

So sorry to hear about your hand Marelize, I'm only just seeing your post now as I'm incredibly behind with my blog reading and I'm blaming the new job for that! The quilt, however, is looking simply gorgeous and I hope you're back to full speed very soon :) x
