I am back. Had my surgery on Dec 7. I am still in pain, and I'm sure that's not going away for a while, but I will survive, and actually it hasn't been as bad as I expected. I stayed with my daughter for a week, and she brought me home yesterday. The Dr says I'm right where I should be. I won't start therapy until January. The graft to the bone needs to heal first. Just doing mild ROM and no raising the arm above my waist level. Just wanted to check in and let you all know I survived so far. LOL.
Barbara, I love your sticher's bible. I want to do something like that, and I think I can do it while I can't use my rt arm much.
Nana, I envy you already having your VB blocks done. I am still trying to decide what I want to do.
I've been checking in today and admire everything everyone is doing.
I'm drugged up, so I'd better go to bed.
Welcome Back Eileen. So glad you are back home and doing well.
I am so happy to hear that your surgery went well and that you are doing alright. Hopefully the pain will ease up some soon. Good luck with the therapy.
Yes... I did work on my quilt(s) today. Was able to get 3 more blocks done on the Double Dutch. And actually made it through the last block with only having to stitch it once. lol (Grin)
Also planning on the next quilt too. So I have one I am hand quilting (Prarie Picnic, one for the machine peicing (double dutch), one ready for cutting (a christmas kit.) and one/two in planning stages.
ok... is this about right? lol
I usually have 2 or 3 that I am actively working on and several more bouncing around in my head. Now that doesn't count the bajillion quilt tops waiting on me to decide to quilt them....ROFLOL
Elaine Phillips:I am back.
Glad you're back. Hope you get to feeling better very soon. You will be in my thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery!
Get well hugs!
Marlene and Ms Cricket
MNnancy: usual pointy all-over meander in a variegated thread. I'll bind it tomorrow and then get a full picture posted.
That is really nice quilting and a pretty blocks. I can't wait to see the entire quilt. I really like the quilting design you do, its really pretty. I have tops I can slide into your stack of UFO's waiting to be quilted....... Gotta keep that LA going full time. LOL
Nana:I just finished the 20 exchange blocks for the VA Beach retreat. Sorry can't share pics of this one. Now on to piecing some blocks to use for applique.
What, What, You just finished your 20 blocks! Are you kidding me! Geez whiz, I barely decided on my fabrics after buying and rejecting how many? You probably have your Christmas pies done and in the freezer ready to bake too? Geez, Nana, you're making me look like Lazy girl here.
I just paid off my ticket early on my charge card for the retreat today and thought that was a miracle. Silly girl I am here.
Well, I will just send you MY fabric and you can do whatever you want. I will sign my blocks when I get there. I am sure you will have them done about 30 min. after the Postman gets there, Oh, I forget, I am using United parcel now. LOL- Me and the post office seem to have bad luck together.
SO how many margaritas will I owe you for 20 blocks? : ) name it LOL
Patti:So I am only packing the shades so I won't be tempted. Sewing from 3 to 10.
Have a good time sewing Patti.
MNnancy:Really wanted to finish that stack-n-whack today, but instead went out for breakfast, grocery shopping, and errands, then home for a long dog walk, and then baked an apple-cranberry pie while DH made his famous smoked salmon chowder. We'll be eating well tonight and watching a DVD movie.
sounds like the perfect day.
MNnancy:Thanks for the nice comments about my pointy quilting motif - I love it because it's easy, it allows me to change direction quickly, and it looks a little different than a normal stipple. I need to move beyond that, though. I want to master straight lines with the HQ ruler next.
You're doing such a great job with quilting. You'll have those lines down in no time.

Thanks for the update Elaine. I'm glad the surgery went well.

nancy, it sounds like a perfect day, even without quilting.
dang it marlene, you got your dibs in first for nana to make your VB blocks. i don't have a plan or fabric or anything. we have months and months to do them, right?
barbara, you are so organized, i have a stitchers rat's nest. i've done them all and they are labled in order, but they are on several pieces of cloth and thrown in a box. do you want to come organize me? sam's a great cook and you can have your own room with a comfy bed !!!
