Bet you thought I got lost somewhere, never to return again. WRONG! As I mentioned when I started this blog, things (read LIFE here) will get in the way but……..I’m back and eager to fill you in on happening things.
First I had such a fun time with Karen Stone this weekend. She came to visit our guild (Charlotte Quilter’s Guild) this past week and she was a real hoot…warm, funny and very generous with her knowledge and time. We had so many members sign up for her workshop that I had to ask if she could do two instead of the usual one workshop to accomodate all those who wanted to attend (that was 40 ladies all eager to be near Karen). Sent her off on her merry way on Sat so she could prepare for her daughter’s 18th birthday. Happy Birthday Chelsea!
News about my wayward foot…I will eventually have to have surgery done. Remember I told you that I was SPECIAL because I have all those extra sessamoid bones on each of my toes (the nurse still insisted I contact the Guinness Book of World Records to report this). Well apparently the original X-ray (taken in June!!!!) was mislabeled and when my new Doc looked a bit closer last week he could see that one of the small round bones was broken. The only thing with that was it showed I should be having pain in my right foot and not the left.
Got new X-rays done that same day and YUP…one of those little teeny tiny bones cracked right down the middle. That’s why I’m still limping darn it, they were all looking at the left foot X-ray which really was a wonderful picture of the right foot with no problems!
So, in the end, Doc decided I should just have those little culprits both removed, hence the surgery and six weeks convalescence for healing…3 wks on crutches and 3 with a boot. Would you believe the best time for that is Christmas??? It’s only then that I can almost guarantee that DH will be home long enough (Business Trips’R Him.com these days) to let me recuperate without too much getting up and down.
That’s all for now. Will have some pics of new work next time including the new ones of the last piece I posted with the Sonji-like bundles I added to it. Cool stuff those bundles.
See ya next time “In the Hayloft”,
