Rainbow Scrap Challenge: Still Playing with Shades of Gray

It's been a frustrating week, the shoulder pain came back on Monday, so there's been no sewing since the weekend and almost no computer time.   The shoulder is better now, so I'm hoping to get some sewing in this weekend.  But I'll still be limiting computer time, that seems to be the trigger.  I'm way behind on answering emails and reading blogs.  I'm going to concentrate on answering emails and then catch up on reading blogs, but I'll probably be pretty stingy with comments.  Typing on the computer seems to be the biggest trigger.  Hopefully the doctor can offer some alternatives, there's probably some physical therapy looming in my future.  

Not being in the sewing room has hampered progress on the Vintage Dresses.  I'm still working with last month's grays.  One of the gray dresses was finally finished last weekend. 


It's not as bright as the others, but I still like it.  The light gray in the dress isn't my original pick, that fabric didn't have much contrast with the white, so I went back and found this that was just a couple of shads darker.  The second gray dress is still in pieces.  It will be a lot darker.  As far as this month's color of garnet, I hope to get some fabrics picked for those dresses this weekend.  

That's it for me this week.  Linking up with:

  2. Oh, so sorry to hear you're experiencing the shoulder pain again! That must be so frustrating for you. Your gray dress is beautiful! It will definitely be quite a contrast against the brighter ones you've made, but I'm noticing that I like that contrast in my own RSC blocks. Hope you have a better week, pain-wise.

  5. I hope your shoulder is better soon. I'm a big believer in physical therapy; it worked wonders for my husband's back problems and my hand problems back in '06, but it does take awhile to be effective.
    The grey dress is lovely and will be a nice contrast with your brighter ones.

  9. I have that gray fabric! Sorry you're still have trouble with the shoulder. I'm going to start Classical Stretch (Esmonde-White) exercises to fix some of my aches and pains.
