Last week was a good week for hand piecing. I completed 5 GFG blocks. I now have only 17 to go before I have all the Grandmother's Flower blocks from the jelly roll pieced. Then I have to figure out how to put it together. I'm wondering if I should buy another fabric and use it between the flowers and to do a side boarder. No idea how much I would need. I guess I'll wait until I get the blocks done first.
Not doing any hand work today. Been doing a lot of knitting lately - socks and mittens for winter and last night I really overdid it watching Christmas specials. My hands are extremely sore and the knuckles swollen and painful from knitting to much. I hate having arthritis in my hands. It doesn't usually bother me as I usually know enough to quit before my hands start hurting. I finished the second mitt of a pair for my Dad last night and one and a half mittens for my son. His second mitten will have to wait until the swelling goes down.
I am glad I don't have karate this week. There's no way I could make a tight fist with my hands like this. Typing is difficult enough.
I'm going to baste and start machine quilting a holiday table runner today. Hopefully, I'll be able to find it before the weekend.
