I recently finished sewing binding on the King-sized anniversary quilt… and last week I started sewing the hexies for the dragon quilt together. Guess what? I now have some very nice calluses on my little fingers… it makes it SO much nicer to hand stitch anything! I just wish that you didn’t have to go through a week of soreness before the calluses come! Oh well ~ it’s worth it!
This is what I’ll be looking at for the next few months:
I’m sewing this in strips that run diagonally in the dragon. I’m excited to be at this point ~ now I just wish I could sew faster. I really have to pace it though… my hand and finger joints can only handle so much. I did find this awesome ointment called Traumeel ~ it has arnica in it and it helps my joint pain immensely.
Okay, I’m off to do some more stitching…
