    Ok, I planned to spend tonight sew/quilting. Fate had other plans. I dealt with a sick kid all day, usually not a stressful event however, he's been off for most of a week. Last Friday was a PD day, then the weekend, then winter kicked us in the teeth and we had 3 snow days, He went to school yesterday, and woke up with a fever today. If I hear "I'm bored" one more time, I will not be responsible for my actions!
    Then my laptop crashed. So, I drove across the city to drop it off at the home of my IT guy (he works from home.) Finally, I got to do some sewing. But, since I came home last Friday from the doctor's office with this lovely wrist splint (yuck) for carpal tunnel syndrome, my sewing is not as easy and swift as usual.
    I did get some blocks done. I'm hoping to make a queen size quilt. These blocks finish at 10" square. I think I'll mix them up with some solid blocks, maybe some 4 patches, and 9 patches, maybe a friendship star or two and maybe play with using different size blocks. I think this will be one that needs to go on a design wall during it's creative process.

    Wonderfully made stars, can't wait to see them all put together! I understand the bored child, mine was home from school for two days this week and one last. It's flu season already and we've only just begun, hmmm. It is a bit boring being sick tho so I understand.

    Your stars are gorgeous, great colours. I live near Windsor, Ont. we have been watching the snow reports all week, hope it dosen't come down here. You must love having Len's Mill Store so close, I envy you. Take care, hope your hand gets better fast.

    Great looking stars. Carpeltunnel is a bummer. I had it (pregnancy hormones induced), with both my boys, in my hands, and same thing in my knees. Not fun at all.

    Beautiful blocks - I have just made a quilt using that star block ! I really feel for you and know your pain ! I had severe carpel tunnel and had to have both wrists operated on , thankfully all ok now.

    You seem to be doing quite well to me. I broke my wrist on May 22 and don't have near full movement in it. I found something called "Creative Comfort" gloves (JoAnn's online carries them) and they are designed by an orthopedist. They have different ones for different hand problems, but one is just for wrists. I'm hoping Santa leaves me one instead of the coal from last year.

    Your stars look fabulous - sorry about the wrist splint. I remember having to wear them and they are not fun at all. I had to wear one on both hands!

    Great work!

    WOW is that what it takes to get some sewing done...
    A crashed laptop (so you can't surf) and a splint on the wrist (so you can't do anything else) LOL - maybe I should try it!
