Here is my ort jar for the 2nd TUSAL post of July. 
Lots of orts from the Birds of A Feather Mystery Sampler in there.  :o)  I am stitching along although slowly.  For the past week I have been experiencing some pain in my right index finger down into my hand.  I suspect it is from stitching as that is my needle hand but I am so close to finishing this sampler I just refuse to stop.  Have any of you ever had this to happen? 

Today was a banner day for me as I found out I won a Go! Baby cutter and 3 sets of dies on Amy's blog.  I am stoked!  I am already imagining the wonderful things I can cut and sew with this little jewel.  Thank you to Amy and the AccuQuilt company.  I can't wait to get it in my hot little (sore) hands!   Maybe I'll give my stitching fingers a rest when it arrives.  :o)

Sending warm(perhaps cool would be better) wishes to all of you for a wonderful week ahead!

HI Myra,
I hope to see your mystery sampler in person next week!
I am so excited that you won the cutter. I know that you will do amazing things with it!

Congrats on your win! I don't have finger pain from stitching but hand pain from holding the linen in hand. I hope your finger feels better soon.

Sorry to hear that your stitching finger is getting sore. I'm afraid rest will be the only cure for it (my index finger gets sore from hand piecing too much).

Very cool about the win!!

Congratulations on winning the Go Baby - I'm sure you will enjoy it! As for the hand pain, I hope that gets better. I need to have my carpal tunnel fixed in my left hand but keep putting it off and sometimes I continue to stitch even though it gets numb -- there is always just one more stitch I want to do!

I'm so thrilled that you won Myra! I know you will be making amazing creations with it.

Take care of your finger. Might be a touch of tendonitis?
