Hoopla Quilt Top

Sewing with one hand is slow going. I had a Hoopla Jelly Roll and some Hoopla yardage. Seemed like a good time to take advantage of a pre-cut and attempt an easy strip quilt variation. This quilt is for a grand daughter that wants me to make her a quilt with lots of green and blue. I'll piece the back from some Hoopla yardage during the next 3 days. It should finish a little shy of 60"x70". Surgery on my wrist to install a plate and some screws is scheduled Monday morning. Soooo I'm not sure when this little quilt will be finished.

My motorcycle adventure vacation ride started in North Carolina. It was a cool, wet, overcast ride to Front Royal. Then we rode the entire length of a very wet, very foggy Skyline Drive.

Pictured are Malcolm and Kevin, friends on the trip. After Skyline Drive, we rode the length of the Blue Ridge Parkway.

A visit to Mt Mitchell, he highest peak in the east.

We stayed at a motorcycle hotel in Robbinsville, NC. NEAT.

Unfortunately a hundred miles from home, my back tire ran over a walnut, I lost control, went off the road into a bit of a slide and then down. The bike is fine, but my left wrist has a few fractured bones. Urgent Care felt it should heat nicely, but they want me to see an orthopedic surgeon. I go Tuesday.

I'm selling my bikes. Last year I broke my ankle, this year my wrist. A three wheel Can Am is in my future :D

I'll be taking a break from blogging for a month or two, or at least until I learn to sew with one hand.
