Good News/ Bad News

I am coming along with my squares for the workshop. I love these square in a square. I love making the stars the most but the square in a square goes fast.


























This is what they look like with the rest of what I have done.

















I tried to make some houses but these don't speak to me at all. I am not sure what it is but I really don't like them at all.

















I made these Broken Dishes yesterday and I love the look of these simple squares. I hoped to make some more today but...


























In cleaning up my work area yesterday I decided to sew some strips together and got these neat blocks. I did not cut one strip or square for these, I just used what I had on my table. It is so much fun to work that way.


























And the bad news is I fell this morning taking one of the dogs out and my ankle looks like there is a goose egg under the skin. I can barely walk on it and I am not sure whether to go to Urgent Care with all the sick people or just put ice on it and hope for the best.

Don't mess around with your ankle! Get it checked out. Sure hope it feels better soon. I really like those squares with the different centers (stars, churn dash, squares), and the broken dishes, too.

The blocks are looking good, but you have to take care of your ankle. I agree with Barb that you should see a doctor.

....well....what can I say...Woo Hoo and OH NO!!!
Your work on your 'parts' has really paid off...you are going to have a wonderful 'Gwen-ish' quilt when you put it all together!!
And then I'm Oh NO-ing....now you have to see about that ankle....afterall...you have to be able to carry luggage....load a plane in about 14 days....oh my...is it your sewing machine pedal foot???

I really like the stars and churn dash blocks. I like the houses too but they might speak to you more if they were more wonky. It's funny that it's harder to make them wonky than straight.
I hope your ankle gets better soon. Take care.

Hopping! You have great start on your workshop. Gwen and Freddy'll get you tilting those houses in no time after all that is what the class is for: to help! So take what you have and come back with a very exciting tilt to your creative endeavors. The physical tilt is harder to fix. You, yourself know whether it just needs some R&R or whether it requires a more expert touch. But I'm sure you'll be up and running in no time!
