Bec's Stitching

While I have been resting with my fractured foot I have been stitching my blocks for GJ. I have three more left to stitch then I should be able to piece the blocks together. I haven't been able to piece the blocks together since my fall because it means getting up and down between the sewing machine and the iron; not an easy thing when your foot is meant to be kept up!
Excuse the not so good photo's, the camera isn't working so great at the moment.

Well, it looks like you'll be all set to sew the pieces together as soon as you're able. I enjoyed the stitching and most of the piecing but those 1&1/2 by 1&1/2 blocks are a pain.

Like you I couldn't get to my machine for a while so I just stitched and stitched then when I could get back to machining the blocks just flew together and now I'm finished - I'm sure it wont be long before you are too.

At least you have something to keep you busy while you are laid up. It looks GREAT by the way.
