Crocheting again!

Well, not really. I have been cleared to crochet again, but I haven't really gone back to it yet. 
I have to finish the binding on my quilt first.

I just entered it into the Eastern Long Island Quilters Guild show in June. So.... I have to finish the binding, label it and attach a sleeve all before June 3rd. The binding is already attached I just have to hand stitch it to the back. You can see more pictures of this quilt here. I think I have finally decided on a name for this quilt: Fly Away Blues. It is an indigo blue and white quilt with a ton of Flying Geese blocks. I think the name is appropriate.

Do you remember these? 
I think it is time for me to return to finishing these crocheted roses. They have been languishing in this basket for quite a long time waiting to be finished into an afghan. The pattern is by Lizzie at Apple Blossom Dreams. I think I may put my scarf aside for this worsted weight crochet so that my hand does not get so cramped with the fine weight yarn. My hand is feeling fine now and I want to keep it that way. 

Joining Ginny's Yarn Along again this week. What are you knitting/crocheting? What are you reading? Pop on over to her site to see what other bloggers are up to.
I am still reading Knit the Season by Kate Jacobs. I am so enjoying revisiting Dakota, Catherine, Anita, Peri and all. I love book series where you get to see what a beloved character is up to several years on. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Love the colour combination of the crochet roses, looking forward to seeing the end result. The quilt is divine and the name so appropriate.

Thank you. It took awhile to decide on that name.

The quilt is beautiful, as are the roses. I had RSI in my wrist a few weeks ago and couldn't really knit or crochet for about 2 weeks. Felt really good to get back into it again!

Your quilt is stunning Cathie, and I do like the name you have chosen for it! I also like your sweet roses and am pleased to hear your hand is feeling good again. Take care and don't overdo it! Joy xo

Slowly is definitely the plan. I can't imagine not being able to crochet or knit.

CathieJ said...

Thank you!

Thank you Joy. I'm taking the crocheting very easy as I want to be able to crochet for many more years.

Unfortunately I have been dealing with this since January. It is better but still not back to normal.
