At last...Progress!!!

At last...progress on my GJ Block A...I am going extreeeemely slow on this quilt...
recovering from a broken arm in 2 places...
physio says it will take up to 12 months to get full function back of my shoulder (yipes!!!)


After positioning myself on a comfy stitching cushion I was able to do a bit of stitching with breaks...
although for a while there a small cross stitch was easier than stitching to do...
however back on track now!!!
Using the sewing machine is good too as I can move my lower arm really well!!!
And Chooky...I will do 15 minutes a day...can't be too hard can it!?


This is what I was up to the night before I broke my arm and it has stayed like this since...
Hopefully I will have it completed next week!!!

And to all the Mums/Nannas out there...
Have a very Happy Mother's Day...

Keep stitchin'...Dzintra
