More Dirty Dozen Finishes

It gives me great pleasure to post the pictures of your Dirty Dozen, no matter what number you’re on or if you’re just sending the picture for my enjoyment.

If Readers have questions about a specific project, please ask the maker in the comments section. And if you’re the maker, please read the comments and answer if the question is directed to you. I don’t want the question to go through me and get me involved.

I want to thank all of you who wrote in about a dog who ate something it wasn’t supposed to – Rick and I both have laughed and laughed! What a great collection of stories that could be children’s books! I wish I had some connections in that field but I would need an illustrator and a company to market the books. But that’s what I want to do in my next life – write children’s books!

I can’t wait to tell you how much better I’m feeling! I can almost walk without my cane and I think it will continue to improve. I have done everything “by the book” since I got home Thursday night and it shows. I want to be able to walk to the piano in a respectful manner – not hobbling and I’m almost there!

    The finishes are so beautiful, some amazing talent in this group. Glad your knee is better, you’ll be running out to the barn to see your tribe before long.

    Mary you are doing just excellently. The dirty dozen finishes are so impressive.
    Stay warm there. Getting colder here in LV.

    Nice job with the finishes your readers continue to share with all of us to see.
    I enjoy seeing them and thanks for putting them on your blog for the rest of us to view. I hope to send you a picture soon. The best news was knowing you are hopeful you will walk much better today so we will be rooting for you!

    Love the quilts!
    As for your recovery ‘‘tis good that you are going by the book on the road to recovery. My PT guy suggests a walking stick vs cane because it keeps you erect because a cane ends you over and bad for the back. I got mine at Amazon and you get two. Makes a world of difference. It is a good conversation starter as people wonder why vs cane. He also said canes make you look old and a walking stick makes you look athletic. Oh yea right

      Angie from Baltimore – interesting – I use a walking stick (a long handle from something) when I go in the barn.

    Very good to hear your knee is almost “there”. I have been hoping it was doing better. You’ll look great going up to accompany.
    I love all of the Dirty Dozens, too. If I didn’t have soooo many more Dirty Dozens, I’d ask
    for patterns, but I know (sort of) my limits–lol.
    Thanks to the PT person who sent the info on the inserts for shoes. My husband looked them
    up, but they only went to size 11/12. He wears a 13 EEEE–big, flat feet:)

    Happy to hear you’re doing better after the freak knee problem. Your healing progress is amazing, even with a few setbacks.
    I’m afraid my dirty dozen game plan has fallen by the wayside, but I’m not giving up. Breaking my wrist last spring and the resulting p t, along with other issues has set me behind this year but I’ll continue dirty dozen as I can. just found it was impossible to use my hand and wrist to complete the tasks necessary. Ugh!
    Merry Christmas 🎄🎁

      Brenda Archambault- do not give up! Your Dirty Dozens will be waiting for you when your wrist is completely healed! Enjoy what others have completed – for now.

    To Leigh Thomas, Is there a name of the pattern for the llamas that you would be willing to share? Love them. All the finished project were super. It makes me feel inadequate.
