My CHERISH Do. Good Stitches blocks

I have been struggling to find time to sew lately ........ but the one thing that keeps me returning to the sewing room is my desire to fulfill my responsibilities as Host for the CHERISH circle of do. Good Stitches :)

It doesn't take too much effort to organise this great bunch of quilters :)  A few of us have been around for a few years now, and it all seems to flow beautifully - except I am usually the last one to complete and send my blocks :(

I keep thinking, I will do that next weekend ..... and we all know what happens next, don't we?  LOL

Crossed

The last two months have been difficult to sew, as I had a fall and hurt my knee - no fracture, but a lot of soft tissue damage.  As you can imagine, it is difficult to sit at a sewing machine when you can't bend your leg :)

I am on the mend now, slowly but surely.  I was a bit stubborn for a while and didn't rest the knee as much as Doctor ordered, so recovery has been slow.  I am still not quite ready for a marathon, but I am getting there.

Many thanks to Mr Fixit for doing the heavy things like doing grocery shopping and vacuuming :)  Don't know where I would be without him!
