Kathleens bb 1


     4 months ago I had wrist surgery on my right hand. 3 months ago I needed more surgery on the same wrist.

     My wrist is very stiff, I go to physical therapy once a week, and my wrist still hurts but that was not going to stop me from trying to sew this beautiful quilt. 

     My sewing is not great. I was not real happy with my sewing around the red so I added a triple stitch around the red to cover my hand stitching.  The rest is hand stitched.

    I am going to have to be careful how much hand stitching I do. With that in mind the decision was made not to include the flower buds.

     It is fun to sew again.

   Thanks for letting me part of your group.
