So while my current surgery is healing very well indeed, my other foot needs the same surgery, and I really don't have time to do it until early 2016.

Well, despite doing some exercises in PT, I rolled that ankle very badly today. So far it's not hurting terribly much, but it's a bad sign that it can roll that much in the first place. So I'm feeling pretty frustrated about the situation. Planning to call my surgeon tomorrow about whether I should be wearing a brace full time, sadly the answer is probably yes.

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

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.

I've got a fandom stocking!

I'm already having a blast stuffing random people's stockings.

quilt wip

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
