quick post...

Sadly, I've blown out my arm again. Raise your hand if you are tired of this too. (see my arm raised?) UP, UP, UP!!! Yea okay, short and sweet.

Typing is the worst...won't be doing much.
Too much hand sewing, not enough machine work.
Plus new med with crappy muscle ache side effects... won't be taking anymore.

Newest block..pokeberry rosebush...and below, all blocks so far.

Next up...machine blocks! Mandatory break...Be back about January 5th!
Happy New Year!

Oh, no! Not the arm. Such a shame especially when you are on such a good roll getting blocks done. Wishing you speedy recovery.

Your Pokeberry blocks are looking mighty good. Hope you can get back to them soon.

Big fat bummer is what I have to say! Just what you did not want to end the year with for sure! Wishing you a speedy recovery so you can leap into 2009 with great stitches!!

I'll be sitting aside with you. I'm sorry to hear about your arm. I threw my back out again so am banned from sewing this week too. Maybe if we are both really, really good this week we will be left healthy for all of 2009.

Arghhh, sorry about your arm. What a bummer. DH has a bad finger. Went to the Dr today and it has a terrible infection. I have to take him back to the hospital for a blood test tomorrow! What a way to take out the old year.

Hope your arm is feeling a bit better! I'm still loving your pokeberry quilt and I'm about to start my own!

Hmmm... if your arm is feeling sore, maybe it's time you sit down with one of your fur covered heating pads and have some cat therapy. :)
