WIP!

Hello all!

This is Celebrate, by Rosario, a HAED design, pg 8. This is the 8th page I've done, as well. This one is entirely flower.

Done in Vikki's silks on her linen as well, probably 36 count.

Celebrate, by Rosario Page 9

Jun. 7th, 2014 | 05:31 pm

I recently picked this project back up again - came across it while cleaning up and thought, why did I put this down?

I just finished page 9, which is actually the seventh page I've done. You can see I've gotten a chunk of flower now, yay. Love working with the pinks.

Back from hospital!

Everything went well, everyone was very understanding about the gluten.

The only annoying thing was that my epidural took forever to wear off, so I was stuck in the recovery room for 5 hours. Boo, it got so boring, but I played soduku with my dad.

Other than that, surgery was a breeze. He fixed my ligaments, sewed up a tear in one peroneal tendon, and sewed a cadaver tendon to the other to support it.

Now onto recovery.

Well, I'm having surgery on Monday afternoon.

It was supposed to be this coming Thursday, but my surgeon called this evening - gave me his personal cell number! - and asked if I could move it. So I said yes.

Glad to get it over with, and the sooner the better.

quilt wip

Nov. 7th, 2013 | 08:20 pm

So. I finished all the blocks for my quilt and laid a few out and I'm not sure what I think. It's more chaotic/random than I was expecting.

What do people think? What I love is the big center fabric. Should I redo with other fabrics and make it less random?

layout 11-7

hard to believe...

Hard to believe that this will become a quilt large enough to cover a queen-sized bed!

fabric 10-26

I have won the lottery

The surgeon's lottery, that is. I called today to make an appointment about my lousy feet and I get in tomorrow at 2 p.m. It's a miracle! Let's hope my feet are so easy to figure out.

Well, I am much relieved. The very disturbing arch collapsing turned out to be an issue with the front of my feet, not the arch itself.

I've got a new diagnosis - plantar fascitis in both feet. Meanwhile, that irritated my posterior tibial tendon (the pain on the inside of my foot) so I'm in a cast for 5 weeks and then I'm getting a specialized brace (Ritchie, if anyone's curious) that will help calm it down further. I'm not sure how long the brace will be for, but hopefully it will not be super uncomfortable. Yay for aggressive conservative treatment. And also yay for working at the hospital, because they let me jump all the queues.
