It's been a month since I had my surgery on my left hand.  This one has taken longer to heal than the first.  I still have some soreness.  I have been able to get some sewing done.  However, a couple of weeks ago I pulled a muscle in my abdomen.  It has been painful and some days I can't even walk.  Today has been a good day.  I have to wait a couple of weeks taking pain pills and naproxen before I go back to the doctors.  Hopefully this will work.

I got the rows of my Chained Reaction sewn into a top.

I cut out this quilt about 2 years ago and only got one block sewn.  So I am so happy to have finished the quilt top.  I'm hoping to be able to get it quilted soon.

I had decided this is the year to finish up some UFO's.  My next top is a Kaleidoscope quilt.  I made the blocks over a year ago and they were test blocks using my Accuquilt Go.

This is a table topper size.  I am itching to make a full size bed quilt using this die.

My final top is composed of 6" blocks from a couple of projects.

It looks wonky because it is up on the design wall.  The quilt is approx. 36"x50".
I chose a red border because there was so much red in the blocks.

I'm slowly working on some hand applique and I want get some more prepped.  I'm plugging away and trying to get some more UFO's finished.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Hopefully I will be posting again next week.

Hugs, Cathy

Looks like you are on your way to finihing up some projects - my goal for this year too! I hope your wrist is feeling better soon, that surgery is tough.

I was wondering how you were coming along with this second hand surgery. Good seeing a post from you.
You are being good about working on UFO's. Me, I have worked a bit on some but still more interested in the new stuff. I like your assortment of 6 inch blocks. The red frames them well.

Ouch. That doesn't sound like fun - hand are abdomen! Hope things are better soon.

Glad to see you are back sewing again.

Hope you're feeling much better soon

Oh my goodness, how in the world did you pull that muscle!!! I have a hernia in my abdomen that gives me fits - but I've learned to live with it and don't try to do too much, lol. Your quilting is just gorgeous - love the red border on the last one! Praying you're fully recovered soon, Cathy!
