Little by Little

I am taking baby steps as I return to sewing.  One part of the health issues I'm dealing with is carpal tunnel syndrome in both wrists.  So you can imagine what that does to my sewing time (as well as my blogging time)!  Anyway, I'm finding I can complete some things...little by little...and that's how it has to be while my wrists heal.  Here's what I finished this week:
For Heather, my June Block Swap Adventure partner.
She asked for a Log Cabin block with shades of blue on one side,
 white on white for the other side and yellow in the center.
  I just love making log cabin blocks
and I hope this is what she had in mind. It's in the mail!

Also, July is my month to send out fabric for
the Let's Bee Together swap,
and thanks SO MUCH to my friend Tabatha, we were able to get all the
packages in the mail on June 30th...right on time!!
Here's a peek at what's in the mail for those of you in that swap:
Thanks, TabbieG!

Since I had to limit computer time in June, 
I never posted my swap blocks for May.
Here's the block I received from Sue:
Perfect for my ocean theme...doesn't that look like thick fog? 
I just love it!

And here's what I made for Sue:
She asked for batiks in fall/autumn colors
and I really liked working with these brights.
They're a little more fallish in person I think...and she seemed happy with it.

So...that's it for now!  Time to get off the computer. 
I really miss reading and commenting on blogs,
I do read some every day, I just can't always comment.

Hope you're having a good summer and  for those of you in the states,
Happy July 4th!  Be "safe and sane"!!

I'm catching up on my blog reading too - glad to see you are heading in a positive direction and are able to do a bit of sewing. Love the log cabin block you have made - and the other swap blocks are cool too. Take care.
