I pulled out my wool applique blocks that I started three years ago and had put away because of my arthritic thumbs that ached when I stitched. I decided to sew whether it hurts or not because it's getting too hot to spend as much time outside now. (It hit 100 for the first time this year a few days ago.)
... could be turned into a tall saguaro.
I have 11 blocks started, and it's hard to decide when to stop embellishing them with embroidery and beads. I think my thumbs will let me know when they're done.
I'm also still quilting my desert quilt, which is slow going because it's so cumbersome to get under the machine. But I really love the colors, so I'll keep working on it a little every day.
Have a colorful day
