Just Stuff

My double knee replacement surgeries are fast approaching. My husband and went to what the Orthopedic Specialist call JOINT CAMP on Thursday evening. They answered all our concerns. I know I must seem daft but I am eager to get on with it. I know that I am in for a world of hurt, but I am looking toward the light at the end of the tunnel. have endured this long enough. It was suggested not to wear gowns but P.J. I have been busy preparing outer wear suitable for Physical Therapy. Today I took inventory of the freezer, to make sure we have enough casseroles.
I have been planing art projects that I can do while recovering. I am not one to sit idle. My little great grand mother use to say “ Idle hands ore a devils workshop”. She came to live with us when my mother passed away when I was just 8 years 0f age. I can remember many of her colloquialisms. One that I live by is “Use what you have, wear it out, make it do, or do without” I worked on my little Christmas quilt as well. I embellishments to do as yet. Then I can begin the quilting process. I love hand quilting. I am not good at it but that is OK .My grand mother taught me to quilt when I was just a wee tot. As I grew up I was not impressed with quilting I thought it was just “Ho Hum” until Emanda took me to a major quilt show in Dallas Texas , was just over whelmed. at the imagination of the quilters. I was hooked. I never taught my daughter to quilt, she found that skill all on her own and she is awesome at it. I am so impressed with those who can make all the points match. I mostly make crazy quilts and cheater applique ( with wonder under) I like to embellish much ,much. My daughter says mamas favorite color is “Sparkle” and she is right I like beads and ribbon and lush fabrics. I am blessed with three friends who were decorators, who loaded me down with fabric samples so I did not go wanting with wonderful fabrics. At first I took the fabrics mostly because I was ignorant to the type of fabric that real quilters use, but I wanted it for my daughter. But she couldn't use so what was I to do but take up quilting. After I had gifted everyone with the larger pieces I started little projects and my daughter was good to help me with quilting techniques
Be blessed and remember “All our days come from the same Source”
