The Quilter’s Window in New Hampton, IA is a wonderful shop that we wish were closer to us! Like maybe an hour closer! Darn! Denise Sinnwell is the owner and she had such a nice setup for the book signing – here’s a couple pictures of the quilts on display. I wish I had taken more.
And here are some pictures of the shop – what I REALLY regret is not taking a picture of her windows …. but it was dark.
And so nice, clean and tidy! Oh, how we wish we lived closer – it was an hour and a half.
Here we are – from the right is Denise, Connie and me.
We signed a lot of books, met all of the gals who work there and chatted with a number of customers —- it was really a fun evening —- or it would have been except that when I stepped out of the van, I simply couldn’t walk. My unoperated knee simply would not hold me up. I brought my cane as insurance but honestly, it didn’t do much good and my right knee/leg was extremely painful. I was a real downer but I honestly could not help it. I’m a lot more fun usually – and I’m so sorry. Connie had to drive home and I immediately got an ice pack and elevated my leg when I got to my place. I had to use my walker and hop on my new knee – that couldn’t be good, could it? I did not get to sleep until 4 am and today I called my doctor who never did call me back.
Is there an orthopedic RN reading this that could give me a clue as to what happened? Will I get better before the 23rd when surgery is scheduled?
I owe so many of you answers to emails and since I’ll be in my chair all day tomorrow, I’ll make that happen.
I will post the new projects tomorrow when I hope to feel better. This, too, shall pass.
