Midweek Makers #408

Welcome to Midweek Makers!

Good news - I went driving last week. Granted it was under 35mph on residential streets, but baby steps. Not at all ready for the big time yet, that will be a couple months. But at least I can get to the store if I need to. 

As for sewing, I'd love to and probably could given I can drive. Problem is, my fabric is difficult to get to because it's in heavy bins on the floor. I'll just have to content myself stitching scraps to make crumb blocks for awhile since I can easily get to those 1 gallon zip lock bags. Baby steps again.

Just want to let everyone know I so appreciate the link ups each week - gives me great eye candy! So let's see some fall creations:

from Vicki's Crafts and Quilting, a pumpkin and cat wall hanging,

Donnaleeq stitched up a pumpkin and cat runner,

and Quilting and Learning creating some swirling leaves.

My Favorite Patterns


  1. Every step of your recovery counts as progress! I think crumb blocks are a great way to get a little sewing therapy. Eventually they will make a beautiful quilt!

  2. Congratulations on your first drive! That is a huge accomplishment. I recall how wonderful it felt after my broken ankle. You are doing great, and will be able to get to those fabric bins soon. Thanks for hosting Midweek Makers!

    1. And I just removed my link as I did it last week...

  3. sorry you have been still in the process of recovery and can't get to your fabric bins - I hope that will change soon!

  4. I'm glad to hear you're improving, Susan. Crumb blocks sound like a great way to quilt for now!!!

  5. I’m sure the recovery must feel endless by now, but the baby steps will reap the best rewards. At least you can reach the crumbs to satisfy the itch! I can remember that frustration from when I had my hip surgeries. The eye candy also helps. Lovely fall projects this week.

  6. Some stitching is sure better than none!

  7. Congratulations on your progress. I think slow and steady wins the race for the best recovery. I know you are really wanting to get to your big fabric, but tackling those little pieces will be rewarding and maybe you can empty some bags. I know we are all trying to clean out our scrap bags!

  8. So happy to hear you are getting better Susan. Yes, baby steps will help you not injure yourself and feel you've made progress! Have fun with those crumb blocks! Those baggies are definitely easier than moving boxes. Take good care of yourself.


Thank you so much for just made my day!
