Can’t sew for a few days :(

Well, best laid plans, I guess.  I was hoping to finish a quilt today and get some cross stitching in this weekend.  And then last night happened.  I had just finished making lasagna for supper and washed out the blender and rinsed the blade. It’s a big ole Ninja blender and has a wicked blade that sits down inside.  Not sure what happened, but I think my hand slipped just a little and I got a pretty bad cut on my left thumb. And I’m left handed!  😯  I put pressure on it and had it wrapped in a paper towel, but I just couldn’t get it to stop bleeding.  Paul came home about an hour later and said we needed to go to urgent care.  Luckily, I only needed to have it glued, but I’m in a splint for a few days until it heals.  🙄  And I had to get a tetanus shot.  It could have been much worse, though.  Anyway, no clipping seams today.  Not sure what to do with myself.  Oh well, I can type at least.  🙂 

Here are some pictures of quilts and totes I’ve made recently.  More coming as soon as I can get back to work!

Pretty patchwork tote

Here’s the finished patchwork tote and it’s just been listed in my shop.  I have sooo many extra 5″ fabric squares that have just been sitting in a rubbermaid box. I pulled 9 different prints and used them in this patchwork rag quilt tote.  I tried to keep the prints in the same color families.  I think it turned out pretty.  Just 1000+ squares to go! 😯

I started this rag quilt tote yesterday. When I cut out fabric for a tote, I end up with lots of extra 5″ squares.  Paul suggested I start taking those squares and putting them together in a patchwork quilt look.  So, I grabbed a few different prints and started this one.  I think it’s going to be really pretty.  It will make a great tote for next spring and summer.
