It seems there are so many who plan to bust their scraps this year. I too have had some really neat ideas popping through my head. Reading Ann’s blog post inspired me to post.

The one block/quilt I would like to try is from Bonnie K. Hunter.

Bonnie K. Hunter’s Winston Ways block

It is called Winston Ways.   I have tons of HSTs leftover bits, and I think this block would be perfect to use them up.

Last fall I was invited to a sewing group, and with my low energy levels, I didn’t participate in the sewing/quilting days.  Although I would stop in from time to time for a coffee visit.  Although my energy levels are still quite low, I am taking small projects that I can work on… it takes me a lot longer to do simpler tasks, but I’m okay with that.  I’m getting out of the house, and I enjoy their companionship.  I do more visiting than anything else.

I saw a General Surgeon yesterday (he removed my gall bladder), as I was still experiencing some low-degree pain.  There seems to be a problem with one or two of my lower ribs.  They are sore, possibly due to an injury.  He’s ordering a CT-Scan to determine if anything turns up.  My daughter told me I shouldn’t be lifting anything, which she may be right, so as a good Mommy, I will listen to her, which means I won’t be lifting my sewing machine, and wont’ be doing anything with it.   I am really hoping that knowing about the ribs, will help give a jump start to the progress of my recovery.

Thank you all for your comments of encouragement and well wishes.  I truly appreciate it.
