Mystery Quilt Week One

When I broke my arm, I was in the big middle of cleaning and organizing my studio in preparation for the Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt On Ringo Lake. It's taken me every bit of effort to get the studio finished (mostly) and my fabrics purchased. Being one armed isn't for sissies!

I took a photo from every corner of my studio. The main thing I did was move one bookcase to stand beside it's brother and put the sewing cabinets back-to-back so Fern and Jake could be out at the same time. I only wish I had company...we could sew together!

Ironing is slow going! I'm glad to have the Oliso so I don't have to lift so much! The ironing motion is very close to one of the exercises I need to do so I'm doing that and looking very silly! I do most of my cutting on the end of the ironing station. Power Cutting, you don't need much room!

Not much ever changes at the stitchy desk where the computer lives.

I must close the door to get a ruler or my mini ironing board. Or the dog gate if Molly is being obnoxious! She loves to herd the spray starch!

Here are most of my Mystery Quilt fabrics. Mostly fat quarters and a bit of yardage. A lot of the neutrals are still on the shelf when this photo was taken.

I still have to iron most of the chocolate and all the aqua before I can move on to more cutting and then sewing. 

I do have all the neutrals ironed and the strips cut for the first clue. I have a broken arm and it takes forever to do stuff! But I am doing it! I don't even know if I can sew yet...I guess I will find out!

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Even with a broken arm (and I hope you get better soon BTW), it looks amazing in your room! I can't wait to have a cross stitch room myself!

A lovely working space with so many delightful fabrics to choose from. I do like your chest of drawers - what a great place to use for storing lots of bits and pieces.

You are doing so well. What a challenge and a goal for you. You will push yourself well and get there. Happy stitching.

The old say "She could do that with one arm tied behind her back" will now be updated to "She could do that with a broken arm"! A beautiful and inspiring creative space. Rosa loves your machine set-up. Oh...no worries..I know you will be sewing very soon. Thanks for sharing the pictures.

You are a woman on a mission! I can't believe you have been up to all that with a broken arm! Good on you :)
