This week I made three blue 9" churn dash blocks--

I cut these from a box of pressed scraps I brought to the camper.  I had 11 blues, so far I have sewn three blocks.  The Accuquilt GO is so handy--I have the 9" churn dash die.  The blocks fit together so perfectly when I sew them.  I'm linking with SoScrappy.

I miss having an oven in our camper.  Recently I bought an Oster countertop Convection/Toaster oven.

I put it on bricks in case it gets hot underneath.  Does it work?  My brownies were a failure but that might have been "operator error".  But I was able to bake cupcakes--

Its big enough for a 13x9 cake pan or a whole chicken.  I'll keep practicing.

Piglet is back--

Grandma's "hog".  Last night I rode it down to the mailbox.  So far no road rash moments!

Not much sewing happening, a month ago I fell UP the steps to the camper and smashed my shoulder against the doorframe.  I rested it for a month, but it's still extremely sore.  Dr. appointment yesterday, Xrays, and a cortisone injection.  Oh well, so it goes!

Have a great week!

I hope the doctor can help you improve your shoulder, it sounds pretty painful! Love my Accuquilt Go! too. I have sore joints in my hands and the cutter makes it possible for me to cut without pain.

Oh, Lori!! I can so relate to your current pain. A number of years ago, I did the exact same thing! Falling UP stairs and falling into a door frame produces a LONG drawn out shoulder recovery.

On the bright side, your Churn Dash blocks look great in shades of dark BLUE!!

Piglet is a hoot! What a fun ride.

My blue sewing has had to wait so far as we've been gone. But I'm hoping to do some in the next few days.
