First up thanks to everyone for the kind thoughts and comments. I was really touched.
I am doing good but was not warned how boring it is to recover from surgery. The first 4 to 5 days you are so tired and sore and doped up that you do not care. It is the days that follow that are really annoying me. Obviously patience is not my strong suit.
I am on day 9 of re-corporation and I am driving myself and my husband crazy. I am well enough that I am alert and functioning but not well enough to be able to bend down or sit at a sewing machine or do anything for more than an hour without dozing off. My life has become a cycle of watching old episodes of Deadliest Catch, making hexies and sleeping. Yipee!
I have been mainly sewing my hexagon flowers together. My placement is rather random – my husband keeps wanting to add a pattern to the placement but I like to just go with the flow. Here is what I have so far….
It may not look like much but I also had to do some running repairs. Some of my earlier stitches were not as small as they needed to be. I had to go back into about 4 flowers and re-stitch.
The back side of this quilt shows just how much work goes into these suckers. Lots of tiny hand stitches…
I am a little burnt out on hexagons, but they are really the only quilting I can handle at the moment. My hope is that by Sunday I will be back behind the sewing machine. Come hell or high water there will be a Paper Piecing Monday. Promise.
