NTT- A Step Backward

Welcome to Needle and Thread Thursday, friends.  My ankle is healed well enough that I started physical therapy this week, but it's been two steps forward and one step back.  Over the years of repeated injury, I didn't realize how much my ankle movement and strength had been compromised, and as a result, how much my gait had changed to accommodate this.  Well, therapy is improving that, but it is kicking my behind in the process.  It sounds weird to say that I can feel that my ankle is starting to move more freely, and yet the exercises that are helping overall are making my ankle more sore in the meantime.  So, no sewing for me this week.

Instead, take a look at some of my favorite projects linked up last week.  Sandra at mmm quilts shared this simple, but beautiful quilt-

This cute farmer applique quilt is by Melva Loves Scraps.  

Maggie at Making a Lather linked up her progress on this scrappy improv String X quilt.

This modern table runner is by Vicki's Crafts and Quilting.  Be sure to check out her post for close ups of the amazing quilting!

And finally, these little improv blocks by Anorina at Samelia's Mum look awesome.  I can't wait to see what they become!

Before we party, there is some business to take care of.  In July, Blogger will stop the Feedburner service, which means that if you're currently receiving my posts via email, that will stop at that time.  BOO!  I'm really disappointed that they're doing this, but we just have to roll with it.  Instead, please continue to follow me through another platform.  I recommend Bloglovin', facebook, or Instagram.  Thanks for your continued support, friends!

Okay, let's get this party started, y'all!

1You can link finished projects or WIP's , but just keep it about quilting and sewing!

*If you're new to the party, here's a helpful tip for linking up- select "Auto Crop"  when selecting your thumbnail photo.  For some reason, trying to crop your own image results in the dreaded "white question mark box," and we definitely want to see your awesome work!  :)


  1. Here's hoping you are back at your machine soon, Kelly!!

  2. My husband is in physical therapy following a motorcycle accident, so I am totally sympathetic to the effects of PT. I hope you turn to the corner soon!


  3. I hope you're back to good and able to be sewing soon.

  4. Thank you for the shout-out and linky opportunity. I just love the cyber quilting community.

  5. Wow! Thank you for the feature of my quilt. I gave it to her yesterday and she was a bit overwhelmed, got goosebumps awww. I hope your foot gets better soon. I imagine there is a TON of scar tissue to work through too from what you’ve said. :-(

  6. Just about the time you think Hurray! there is some other rock in the road. Will probably follow you on Facebook but good to know there are options. All of the great things everyone is making is inspirational. Thank you
