Smalls SAL check-in September

Hi everyone, sorry about the delay in updating, I´ve sprained a wrist which has made typing, blogging and nearly everything else a bit difficult..  It is check-in day for the Smalls SAL hosted by Heather at the Stitching Lotus and I can show this little pattern finished recently but not yet made into a biscornu.


While DH was away for a week, I was going to sew up a storm, completing UFOs, catching up on taking photos and blogging in general but on the first morning of my -do-as-you-please- days, I sprained my wrist making the bed of all things and so my sewing plans went out of the window.


This biscornu pattern is a free one by Erba at CasaERBA



Before down to the use of just one hand, I had been making very good progress with my granddaughter´s crochet blanket squares.


I started making blue knitted squares months ago but we then decided on purple and pink crochet cotton ones and I needed to make about one hundred.  They are nearly finished now and I am doing the blocking.


SOME  HORRIBLE SCRAPS

I have been trying to organize my fabric stash and have these horrible scraps which I am going to put  together in a big envelope and send to anyone who might be in the need of horrible scraps, just let me know if you would like them..,,. they are mainly 90cm x 15cm.


This is all for the moment, see you next week.
Sheryl

  5. Whenever I make the king sized bed I always feel like I'm going to sprain my wrist. So sad it actually happened to you. I love the colors you picked for CasaErba's pattern.

  8. Oh, I'm so sorry to hear about your wrist, Sheryl! I think that may be a first--spraining a wrist from making a bed :) I hope it heals quickly so you can resume making the squares for your granddaughter's blanket! They are so pretty..

    Hope October will be a better month with no further injuries--take care now!

  9. I hope your wrist gets better soon, take care. Your crochet squares look wonderful! Those fabric scraps would do great in the quilt along Autumn Jubilee I have coming up. If no one takes them, sew them up! Cut into squares and triangles, they won't be so bad. Take care!

  13. It is very hard to do things with a sore wrist. Well just shows that housework is bad for you...
    Your crochet squares are lovely. I haven't the patience to join them together. Love your stitching. As for the fabric... I love using scraps. I make lots for charity and I know they will go to good use.... good luck with your recovery...

  25. Gosh Sheryl, poor you straining your wrist. I'm not too surprised you could do this, our King sized mattress is very heavy, and with my bad back I have to get DH to assist me changing the mattress cover. I hope your wrist is improving now!
    What gorgeous stitching, the centre is amazingly pretty, is it needle weaving? I love the colours of your crochet squares, not sure if you have told us before, just wondering what cotton you used .... not that I'm likely to try making anything like this .... just wondering!
    Take care of yourself!
    Hugs, Barbara xx

  26. One womans horrible is another's lovely! If they are still looking for a home count me in. What a shame about your wrist! My most productive time is when Philip is away - decorating, sewing tidying sorting - it's amazing how much you can get done with no man about! I love your beautiful stitchery - gorgeous. xx

  31. So sorry to hear that you sprained your wrist and that all your wonderful plans for your week alone went out the window. How disappointing. And with just one hand crafting is more than difficult. I hope that your wrist is already better and that you can slowly slowly get back to stitching and crocheting.
    These crochet squares are wonderful to look at in all these wonderful colours. And the little biscornu pattern - just great!

  32. Hi Sheryl, so sorry to hear about your wrist - that is so annoying, just when you had lots of big crafty plans, too. Your crocheted squares are such pretty colours and the biscornu is going to be stunning when you put it together. I will pass on the horrible fabric scraps, as I am trying to clean out my fabric stash, too. hugs, Kaye xxx
