I have a bad shoulder. It hurts.
Something to do with my tendons and too much knitting/crochet etc. So guess what? No more knitting and crochet for me for a while.
It's hard not to do anything. I find watching tv without keeping my hands busy especially frustrating! I'm so close to finishing a cardigan too...
The only thing I've been able to do is the only thing I can't show you. I was asked by Sew Hip to design a small baby quilt and it's almost ready to post to them... Exciting but, again, frustrating I am not able to share!! I'll let you know when it'll be published, at the moment I don't know either.
One thing I've let myself do - slowly and not too much of - is a little bit of hand sewing:
Hexagons and English piecing have been on my list for a while and it's been fun rummaging through my stash of scraps.
Hand sewing is a totally different ballgame though. Extremely satisfying and frustratingly slow at the same time. (Or maybe it's just me).
I love the portability of the project too even if it does require a lot of preparation beforehand!
Will I create a huge piece? probably not (but who knows).
On a totally different subject I finished reading Andrea Levy's "the long song". Beautiful. I totally recommend it. Beautifully written, at times funny, excruciatingly sad, brutal, tender...
Tomorrow is the day of my test - keep your fingers crossed for me.
