STITCHING AS FAST AS I CAN

I haven't been around in Blogland as much as usual.  My knee problems have kept me from spending as much time in the sewing room.  Sometimes I can't sit at the computer as long as I normally would.  But I am still plugging away on my projects.  I also am in gift mode and can't show some things.  Just a quick picture to show you that I am sewing and doing handwork.

I hope to have more to show you soon.

Bummer about your knee! Dang it! But must comment on the quilt .....too good my friend, that is just too darn good!

Lovely creations there Karen. Hope your knees are kinder to you at times...

Quilt Hollow said...

I came back to ask what is the quilt on bottom called? Who's pattern? It's good...crows, house, sigh

Lori said...

Cute Karen! The last section I posted of the Porch quilt ended up being quite a lot. Do you need more time? Lizzy was "washed" out of her house because of the storm, Sandy, so I was considering adding another month to this installment anyway. Then with you being laid up and the holidays.......

I've been wondering how your appointment went when we haven't heard from you, sorry that knee is still hurting you.

With me it is the back, standing and ironing and sewing in my room can take it's toll. I try to get things done around the house before i start, then I can crash in a chair when I am done and work on hand sewing;) Love your new pieces.

So sorry to hear about your knee -- I also have bad knees, which I think is pretty common. Your quilt projects are beautiful (as usual), and I always look forward to seeing your new creations.

Hope you feel better soon.
