It has been 3 months “Post Surgery,” and I guess it’s time to get back to work. Actually, I guess you can say I have been working, just not Blogging about my work.
First of all, I’ve been busy with Physical Therapy – Twice-a-week with the Physical Therapist, and then ‘homework’ on my own. It began slow and painful. I can honestly say I’m about 50% back – more movement without Pain or Hurt, but still a lot of muscle weakness. I saw the doctor this week and he was pleased and he may release me in another month. But I will still have a lot of work on my own after that.
Also, I have some wonderful friends – quilty friends who know how much quilting means to me and have assisted in my “Quilt-therapy.” Early in my recovery I was permitted to Computer, and after a while I discovered that working on the sewing machine isn’t much different. Ironing wasn’t much of a problem either, as I am right-handed. But Rotary Cutting wasn’t successful. So a couple of friends assisted me with cutting up fabric into ‘kits’ so I could begin stitching.
So, my “Quilt-Therapy” began. Unfortunately many of my projects are in my No-Show List.
- I’m Block Testing again for Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks, Volume #8 which will come out in the fall.
- I’m working on some Christmas Quilts.
- I’m Pattern Testing & Sample Making for a book that, hopefully, will be released this fall.
- I’m Pattern editing for several wall hanging/quilt patterns.
Pictures will come once these Top Secret Projects are completed.
