So it is a week and 4 days since the surgery and I am ready to get back to life. However, when I do anything I get real tired and dizzy. This recovery is more then I thought. I go back to the doctor tomorrow and hopefully get my staples out tomorrow. I am pretty darn scared ! I have tried 2 times to sew in the last week and I get dizzy and need to sit down. This sucks.

When I get back from the doctor I will try to blog tomorrow ....

3 days out

Ok so this is the first page of a blog I have been wanting to start for awhile. I have been really getting into quilting over the past few months. I am finally getting the hang of subtle things that can make or break a quilt. My first project was a baby quilt for baby Damien who is 11 days late now. I used a square in square pattern along with 4 patches in baby blue and yellow gingham. I cut and pieced it and my friend Karen quilted it :

I was pretty happy with how this turned out.

After finishing the baby quilt I wanted a small project where I could practice embroidery and machine quilting. I found a table runner pattern that I altered and this is what I made

Since finishing this runner I have had brain surgery. I have a month or more of recovering to do and am bored not being able to sew. I did however, cut up fq's for a scrappy bright quilt top. Once I recover enough I can hopefully work on getting that together. I am just bored out of my skull right now. I can't lift, stretch, bend etc for at least 3 weeks fun fun.

Several of my quilt buddies from Aol have been sending me pink/ purple/ turquoise FQ's so I can make a scrappy quilt out of them when I am better. I look forward to the mail each day :)Without them I truly would go crazy ! Thank you ladies !!!!!
