Art Every Day Month — Day 16

Today hasn’t been productive, at least not very. I have started some more door hangers for gifts and fun. They’re quick, easy and I enjoy making them. At least the embroidery part is all of that. The sewing part is just OK.
It’s been so long since I’ve hand quilted that I lost my callus. Loosing the callus for a hand quilter is a sad thing because when you start back up at the quilting, it hurts. Then you get sore and have to develop the callus all over again. I will hand quilt some each day until I get my callus back, but I won’t be able to quilt a whole heck of a lot until then. Just enough to get sore until I get my callus back. Sounds like a lot of fun, doesn’t it? Actually, other than the pain part, it is. I’ll show you something on my quilting as soon as I have a good amount done.

    Anxious to see your door hangers. Good luck on the callus. Hope you get it back quickly, if that is possible. Kinda like guitar player calluses.
