Good Monday Morning!

Well, I'm in the orthopedic boot and my stitches are out and all is well in my world and I can drive AND I can go to Sit and Sew tomorrow at the LQS!! This is a big deal---I've been gone for almost a month now!!! Having withdrawls!! It will be wonderful to go back and see all my friends and maybe do some stitching---probably do more talkig and looking at fabric than actually stitching!!!! LOL!!!

My hubby is in PT for his muscle pull in his leg and it is helping him a lot--now it's my turn to wait on him----very carefully though---I'm not going to do anything to set myself back!!! Old age isn't for sissies that's for sure!!!

On the quilting side---I'm finished appliquing the sheep and flowers and now need to decide how to quilt it---it doesn't need much, so I may just stitch in the ditch and call it good. Then bind it and sew their eyes on and it will be finished. Maybe I should sew their eyes on now before I quilt so the stitching doesn't show through to the back----bet that is what I supposed to do----if all else fails I should read the directions----right?!!!

It has turned to Fall here temperature wise in the high 70's and low 80's and it is lovely. Hope it will stay like this for awhile. Just makes a person feel good!!!

Let quilting help you make someone smile!

Yay, you graduated - that's wonderful! So glad you can get out and about now. You're so right, getting older is NOT for sissies. Be careful and don't overdo, either of you! Enjoy your day tomorrow.

Yep, sew the eyes on first - usually I miss something like that until too late, then I kick myself.

We're going to be enjoying November temps this week - highs in the low 50's, and lows in the 30's!
