No hand applique for awhile

Though I really would like to do some Dear Jane applique, especially of some simpler blocks in my 3 inch size. I also have a binding on a quilt that I need to sew down. However, my hands are in dreadful shape. With the winter temperatures and low humidity, my skin is dried out, and yes, chapped and cracked. I stopped an applique block 2 weeks ago when I noticed a touch of blood on the thread (luckily not on the fabric yet). So have done a bit of machine piecing (see previous post).
It turns out that Goshen is the triangle of the week this week! I must get the rest of the pieces ready and finish my first kite.
