I think this picture should be turned...but I won't know what direction until I get binding on and ready for sleeve!

I'm actually think of inserting some stab hand stitching in between the hex pieces/stitching.  

The hand stitching would be quite small and not large stab stitching....only because the stripe blocks are heavily quilting.

So, I'll get back to beading the squirrel and put this aside for a few days...then decide!

Speaking of beading!  Went to the Ortho doctor last week and got shots in both wrists!  WOW!  What a difference!!  Swelling and pain are down and, actually, pain is almost gone...of course if I bend, lift or twist my hand/thumbs the pain is severe.  Dr. recommended surgery but we'll hold off on that for awhile!!!  He also suggested to wear braces on both hands/wrists.  I'm going to pick another one up for my right hand at Walgreen's at Senior Tuesday!  HA

Things are lookin up!!!  Woo hoo!


  1. Glad you got some relief for your wrists. I have to wear a brace on my left wrist when I crochet. The quilt piece will look great not matter which direction you hang it.

  2. I love the quilting on your new piece. That's great news about your pain relief!

  3. Love your quilting on the hexie quilt. Believe me "sista" I know wrist pain. I had to lay off hand stitching for about a month and a half. That really helped. I hope the braces help you. They do help me when I do too much stitching.

  4. Love the way this is turning out….the background quilting design is spot on!

  5. Fabulous Hexie Quilting. So glad to hear shots gave you some wrist relief. Braces for certain should help you not overdo your wrists. Beading is very tedious and may aggravate your wrists pain. Hoping you find steady pain relief.

  6. Love the beautiful colors against the white...
