FMQUILTING and a little visit.

I had a little accident this week when I was " in the zone" doing my FMQuilting on my tapestry quilt. I stitched right through my thumb, in one side and out the other. My thumb went blue, and has been super sensitive and I can only really just use it again now.
Here is the reverse of the quilt showing then leaf pattern that I did all over.

I have also managed to get a second swoon block made, they are just so pretty.

But I didn't get a lot done last night as look who came for a visit and decided to have a sleep over. Jack got cold in the early hours of the morning and joined us in our bed.


  1. oh ouch, thinking of you sewing through your thumb makes my toes curl. I think the fmq stitching is gorgeous though.

  2. ouch... fmq can be dangerous... I did that to a finger once.... your stitching does look lovely...
    little cold feet in your bed in the early hours....

  3. Hope your finger is feeling better soon. Your quilting looks good.

  4. Yikes! What did the doc say? How did you get the needle out? Ouch, ouch, ouch! The FMQ looks great, but I think we need to get you some chain mail gloves, like the butchers wear!
    As a parent with small people who repeatedly visit in the early hours...yes cute, but so glad they did it at Grandma's house, so Mummy got some sleep! Although Grandma might need sleep to get over her injury? Personally I would have needed pain killers that put me to sleep, I am such a wimp!

  5. Double ouch! I did that one time and I can remember how much it hurt.

  6. Hope your finger heals soon. Ouch, makes my stomach churn just thinking about it. Like your quilting and block. Hope your grandson gave you lots of cuddles to help with the pain. Hugs.....

  7. ooh that must have hurt - gives me goosebumps thinking about it.Beautiful quilting and am loving your Swoon block Sue

  8. OH Sue that gives me the hebe jebes. I am so sorry that happened. Did you go to the Dr.? So glad you are doing a little better. Your FM quilting looks great. Just love the design. Your swoon block turned out great. That block is so much fun to make.
    Hope you are having a great day.
