Taking it easy.....

I am trying to take it easy, as I recover from a Hernia Repair.  The doctor said I wasn't to drive for a week and needed to take 3 weeks off work to recover from the repair and surgery.  Fortunately I have many things to keep me occupied while at home.

Two more blocks in the Breast of Friends series are now done.

Block 6 designed by Lynette Anderson. 

I have altered mine just a little, the original design has the letters and words for the sign post stitched onto fabric then applique to the background, I cut out the middle man and stitched directly onto the background. I have also omitted the cross stitch around the outer. I can always add it later if necessary.

Block 7 designed by Rosalie Quinlan.

No changes to this design, a direct copy.  I'm not sure my circles are improving, but I will keep trying to get them as close to round as I can!

Know how you are feeling I had the same Op March last year...a Great Tip from one of the Nurses...when you need to walk around hold a cushion on your Tummy for support...Mine was directly under the Bellybutton...I was off work for 6 weeks but my work is heavy...
Your Blocks are Lovely...
take care

I hope you're all well and recovered soon, Julie. While you're wrestling with those appliquee circles you might like to take a look at how I solved the problem of getting mine nice and round on my latest project.

I know mine are smaller, but it might help.
