I'm Back! Well, sorta!

OK, so Prednisone is my best friend right now!  So while 'she' is helping me out with the pain and swelling in my wrists, I might as well take advantage of 'her'!

Today I did some sewing, via machine, and it felt so good to be productive again!  I have four or five of these Solar Prints that I want to hand stitch but I needed to add some borders on, which is what I did today!

I added a batik border to this piece, which the leaf hand work is finished.

this one was finished while in Florida

And Wednesday I added this border fabric.  Now to start stitching the leaves!

I've finished hand sewing two of the leaf prints and now need to decide how to finish off the background area.  Machine or hand stitching!?  I do have a due date of August to finish these so I'll have to put my thinking cap on once I've done all the leaf hand work!

It feels SO good to be back...


  1. I’m so sorry you are still suffering from aches and pains…..which is a REAL pain for us go-getters. Just try not to overdue…..lovin’ your leaf prints!

  2. Your bordered prints look wonderful. Maybe opt for machine stitching just to be kind to your hands and wrists for awhile? You'll have to pace yourself! Hope the treatment resolves things for you.

  3. Proof you can't keep a good woman down!!
