So my arm is still sore! Knitting and crochet are still on hold. I tried cross stitch and it became uncomfortable after a short time.....
Sew, back into my room I went, looking for something to occupy me.
I used an advent panel to make up this advent calendar. I added ribbons to the gifts and buttons as tree embellishments.
I had to take my time, even feeding the fabric into the sewing machine became uncomfortable toward the end.So I made and quilted it on one day and bound it another day, closing it by hand. Then on a third day I hand stitched on the ribbons and buttons.
I still have to add a hanging sleeve, something for a forth day!!
All of the discomfort aside, I did enjoy making it and wanted to make some more. The girls and I will be attending a Christmas craft fair soon and I thought/hope these might sell.
I shopped on the internet as my local store didn't have anything available.
This blue one caught my eye.
And another one with Santa on.
I ordered them yesterday, and they were delivered today.
That was quick.
I'm not going to sew today, I'm going to rest my arm and will make a start on them next week.
My Doctor says my wrist may take quite some time to mend, even if I do managed to rest completely.......
I'll try to rest it, but there are so many things I want to do.
You know how it is right?
