As I sat this morning I looked back on the last few months to see what's kept me busy and away from my blog, and from visiting your blogs. I had knee surgery, arthroscopic, in the hopes that it would fix the clicking, grinding and bone rubbing. It didn't, I now need knee reconstruction. While visiting the orthopedic surgeon he also told me that I need to have shoulder surgery to repair a tear.
This beautiful bag arrived from Peg a couple of months ago as part of the PIF, in the middle of a breast cancer scare. Fortunately that's all it was a scare. I did thank Peg privately, however I wanted you to be able to see her beautiful hand work. Just perfect for carrying around my stitching.
In between all of that I did manage to find a little time to put eight of these place mats together for Jenna. Thank goodness for stitching, it has been the only thing that has kept me sane lately.
Bonnie. Today's plan was to get it close to finished, my sewing machine has other plans. The darn thing won't switch out of bobbin winding, think it needs a trip to the shop.
Last night I started on Allie's sweet bird stichery. It will be perfect in a frame for Tayla's room.
So that's brought everyone up to speed.
