"Sew" "Purr"fect...

Good Evening Internet Friends.

Today I attended the Fort Saskatchewan Quilt Show with 4Paws Quilting & Knitting.  

There were "sew" many beautiful quilts to see.  I highly recommend this outing to everyone.

Of course there was a Vendor's Market and by end of day I decided that I really needed to add to my stash so here are a couple of items I picked up:

TAH DAH/  Cat Selfie fabric already sewn into a Zippered Pouch and a skin or Tuxedo cat wool ☺

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

Out to Lunch...

Good Evening Internet Friends.

Still not doing much of anything crafty.  Hand still hurts when I do too much of anything,

Went for lunch with one of my friends and her 3 month old baby.  I had missed their baby shower due to being on vacation in Quebec.  

Spent close to the last week trying to make a receiving blanket and literally just before leaving for lunch I finished it 😼:

Flannel both sides!!!

The other present that I also give a baby is a book, or in this case a set of books that I wrapped in the blanket:

Hope they love it 😼

And on the 9th Day......It Rained.....

Good Morning Internet Friends.

I am posting this morning because I have actually accomplished something BLOG worthy before lunch today.

I finished knitting my Hudson Memories colourway socks late yesterday.

This morning I got up early and grafted the toe closed because I wanted to wear them today.  The temperature outside is 8 degrees and raining.  Yuck!

TAH DAH!!!  They really do feel nice and warm and cozy today.  

Now, the real reason I got up early was because I wanted to make Whole Wheat Flax Seed Pumpkin Pancakes for my son for breakfast today:

Served with cinnamon whipped cream and maple syrup they were extra delicious.  πŸ₯ž

Hope this inspires your own creativity and keep warm today....

Day 8....

Good Evening Internet Friends.

Took the splint and pressure bandage off for a little longer today.  Fingers and wrist still get sore quickly when I do more than I should.

I did sew a pillowcase today because that was just plain sewing and not tiny pieces.  Sharon brought in this really cute fabric to 4Paws Quilting & Knitting and I knew that a not so little boy would think it was fun:

TAH DAH!!!  A camping/scouting pillowcase ⛺.  

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

Day 7...

Good Evening Internet Friends.

Took the splint and pressure bandage off again for a bit today and tried to make a fist.  Still not happening but at least I think the swelling is going down.

After dinner and walking the dog I decided to spend some time in my craft room.  Here is what I managed to get done with pre cut squares from my (stash fabric not cookie): πŸͺ

TAH DAH!!!  Another Flock of Geese Block.  I really love this block. 

This is week 37 and as of tonight I have completed 27 πŸ˜•.  

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

Day 6....

Good Evening Internet Friends!

Happy to tell you that I have a little more range of motion in my fingers and wrist today.  Of course once I found out I could get some movement all caution I have developed with regards to my hand over the past few days disappeared and I very quickly felt pain that lasted most of the day.....😒

My son and I took the dog for a walk this afternoon because the weather was beautiful.  Fall is in the air of course so I had to take my puffers along with me.  πŸ•πŸšΈπŸπŸ‚πŸƒπŸŒž

Attempted to do a bit of knitting with a 3.5 mm knitting needle today (much bigger than the 2.25 I usually use).  Did not get very far.  Doing a test knit on a pattern that Sharon developed for a yarn she brought in to 4Paws Quilting & Knitting:

It is a very fine but fun yarn to work with because of the gold "bling" pieces to it.  

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

Day 5......

Good Evening Internet Friends.

Another uneventful and kind of long day as there are things I would like to do but my hand just will not cooperate with me.  It is getting better, the swelling is decreasing and I have some movement to my 4th and 5th digits.  I am also getting better at protecting the area and not reaching for and grabbing objects with my right hand.  πŸ˜ƒ

I found a Flock of Geese Block on my desk that I actually finished last week before my injury "sew" I took a picture of it and will post it today....better late than never I guess....

TAH DAH.

Might try knitting with larger and straight knitting needles tomorrow and see how that works. 

Hope this inspires your own creativity...
