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.
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.
