Progress of Sendai Block

I usually use silk threads for the seam treatments but this time I use different kind threads that I bought them recently. These are locally produced threads for Brazilian embroidery, but I started to use them for the seam treatments. I really liked the color scheme so much. In addition, their lovely colors perfectly matches with my oya flowers and beaded oya laces as well. My first trial with the pinkish color was satisfactory, I hope I start to learn BE with the sake of these lovely threads. I just know a few simple things related with BE, I want to learn more details.
I was planning to complete this little block for Sendai Project in a short period but my tendonitis problem of right hand recurred once again after a long time. It is so obvious that I did overwhelmed during and afterwords of our moving. Now, I'm a slow turtle again, if I stitch a few hours I must give a break at least a few days, because my finger gets swollow immediately! There won't be any worst case for a quilter....

Rengin, I hope your tendonitis is soon resolved, as it can be very painful. I do love the colours you've chosen and your block is looking fabulous! I look forward to seeing the finished project.

Thanks so much...I'm trying to be careful as much as I can but as you said so it is very painful!
I hope I'll be able to finish the block soon.

Rengin, I appreciate your work for us, Japanese very much. Your block is very elegant and feminine. It must be beautiful when finished. But your health is the first priority. Please take care of yourself. Hideko
