It’s been quite a week already, hasn’t it? If you’re a blog follower you know I had surgery on Tuesday. I had an appointment today to remove the helmet which makes me feel 200% better. It was so claustrophobic with it wrapped under my chin and my scalp got so itchy inside that it was nearly unbearable. I was using a letter opener to scratch under the bandages, that’s how much torture it was. I feel so much better today and I even remembered to smile when I took my picture! I’ve been told these pictures are gross but my reason for sending them is that many women will need to have or want to have this surgery in their future and I wanted to take all the mystery out of it for them. I looked at this as a teaching/learning opportunity and I am really sorry several readers were offended. I am confident that the pictures will only improve from now on.
Tomorrow is February 1 which means another UFO project to pick, a new online sampler block to make, 100 more bolts on the $7.00 sale will be online and our $5.00 in store fabric sale starts. That’s a lot going on for one day and I am sorry I will miss all the traffic in the shop. I hope you’ll be here to take advantage of the sale fabrics.
Since I am not allowed to do too much for the first week, I have nothing to show you that I’m working on, no book I’m reading, no new recipes I’ve tried….nothing but an ice pack and the couch. Rick has done quite well so far – I do have to remind him of what needs to be done but we haven’t killed each other yet so I think that’s a good sign.
Here is the newest Pinterest Club quilt that I finished last week. I think it is so crisp and clean looking with all the muslin – maybe you’d like to join Pinterest Club so this will be in your mailbox soon?
Sweet deals abound in the quilt shop with the addition of single kits on sale, punchneedle and more fabric. I hope the weather is not nasty so that many of you can travel our way to take advantage.
Thanks for all your “get well” messages – the best is yet to come!
