Paper Piecing Party #22

Yaaay! It's Friday!
Somehow just knowing that is therapy of its own kind...



Today is our "Link up" your amazing designs, blocks, whatever you've got - as long as its Paper Piecing - day

I haven't done any sewing (sigh..) but I did try out my arm at designing something and its slow going but still working.
I went to the Dr yesterday and the scan of my shoulder showed it to be "frozen shoulder" - jeepers, who knew... Sore but manageable... so no big work or sewing for a while though ...


This is my Polar Bear and Cub pattern - has a geometric feel to it. 
You can change up the colours just as you like.

The pattern measures 14"(37 cm) and is on the Intermediate Level
You could make a wonderful pillow or even a wall hanging, focal point in some other quilt etc. 
Once you're done, send me a photo... please... 
I love to see all the finished blocks

(Pattern is now on Craftsy)

Lets get on with having a squizz at all your hard work...

I'm so sorry to hear about your shoulder. I know how it feels as I had a frozen shoulder several years ago. I got it by slamming the car door shut when I was upset with hubby. I had physical therapy as suggested by the Dr. but it only got worse so I let it alone and it really froze (not what you wanted to hear but wait it gets better). For about a year I couldn't lift my hand above shoulder height and then miraculously it started feeling better. I started exercising it on my own by throwing socks into a basket on the top shelf in a closet and regained about 95% mobility so I was really happy until I reinjured the shoulder last summer lifting a too-heavy TV. I went to the Chiropractor and had an ultrasound treatment and it was better than before the TV injury. The therapist really dug into the shoulder which was unpleasant but I've heard that is what is needed. Hope yours heals well. I haven't started paper piecing yet but I do like your patterns.

Great polar bear pattern. Thanks for the freebie. It will be a while before I can sew too. Just had major cervical spinal surgery. I tore a rotator cuff many years ago, so I can sympathize with you. I pray your shoulder heals completely and quickly.
