I forgot to add this photo in my earlier post – I finished the 5th diagonal row on Diamonds are Forever and now need to hand stitch it on. I think I only had to unstitch 3 times on this row for mistakes in layout – I’m getting the hang of it LOL
Kathy at Kathy’s Quilts asked what hand stitching we are working on and what do we do to take care of our hands. You can go on over to her blog to check it out. For taking care of my hands I have a new lotion that is working wonders – I have only used it for 2 days and it is homemade. On Friday morning one of the quilters brought in lotion that she had made and gave all of us a small bottle to try out. I have seen this “recipe” before – but had not tried it.
1 jar of vaseline – the 13 oz size
16 oz. baby lotion (not oil)
16 oz. vitamin E cream (not oil)
whip these all up with mixer in the kitchen and place in little jars that you can find at the dollar store – it will be a little oily at first from the vaseline but it soaks in fast. I will continue to use this and see what happens with my hands.
