Sunday Bliss

I have been today for some unknown irrational reason working on prepping an applique block.
Why I'm doing this really make no since because Thursday I will surgery done on both wrists for carpal tunnel. Since both are in need but the right hand is the worst, my surgeon explain doing both at the same time is the best way to go. Healing will be better in the long run. Will see
Anyway that being said, it's silly really to be doing this instead finishing something else.

All I can say is I wanted to.

It is a Blackbird Design, Warm Hearts I started years ago and put aside. Came across it while looking for fabric the other day.

Couldn't get it out of my thoughts.

Have 2 of the 9 blocks already done

Since the pattern was already made and ready to use I went ahead with the method I prep.

 Using freezer paper and starch.

Now after this week I'm not sure how long it will be before I get back to stitching on it.
Maybe I can have it done, just depends on if my hands get to hurting,
That could the reason for why I stopped working on this before, don't remember exactly.

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
