    Lucky March Table Runners

    These runners are the last two projects I was able to squeeze out before my rotator cuff surgery, nearly 4 weeks ago. It's killing me to look at the pile of scraps and UFO's on my sewing table without being able to do anything about them! A few days ago I discovered that I can crochet without moving my shoulder, so off to the races I went, lol. Hope I not breaking the rules by posting non-quilty things.

    All are very pretty! So sorry you are having shoulder trouble. Hope the problem will soon be resolved and you can get back to making quilts. I tend to alternate between quilting and crochet so I don't get bored with one craft.

    Thank you! The runners are the simple French Braid pattern, found online. The gray scarf was an afghan stitch I adapted for the scarf, the burgundy scarf pattern was a freebie from JoAnn's called "Shore Thing", and the infinity scarf was my own design.

    Those are the same patterns, although I used 2 1/2" strips on the runner. The scarf works up very easily and is fun to do.

    Your table runners are very pretty! I should make one for my Irish DIL. I love the crocheted scarves, too. I used to crochet but haven't in years. May have to take it up again!

    I hope your shoulder is healing well. Do as the doctors say!

    After removal of a bone from my wrist followed by a tvt operation about 6months later I had to do as many craft projects as possible. I was knitting sewing crochet etc. both are beginning to improve slowly. Do as you are told and in no time you wil be sewing.. I also trolled the web to find notions to help me with problems . Ie sewing one handed. I found a bird to hold fabric at times, rulers which held fabric without moving. Keep coming here as well for a look at new projects for the future.
    Finished is better than a UFO

    Those are all great ideas, thank you. Good luck with your continued recovery!
