Day by day and a big thanks!

It feels so good to finally be able to type with two hands. My rotator cuff surgery was on September 2nd and as I am improving each day, I am feeling a little more normal. Surgery went well and I have to extend a huge thanks to the friends who came and stayed with me, providing moral support and everything else I needed. And also thanks to everyone else for their cards and phone calls and caring. I am a very lucky person to have such wonderful family and friends.

Not sure if I shared this but these were a few supplies I bought before surgery. Carbohydrates are medicinal, aren't they? 

I still won't be able to do any sewing but plan to look through patterns I've collected to see what I will do first after the sling comes off, PT has time to work and I'm ready to go.

I do have one other thanks for this post. When I got home from surgery I got an email that I had won this lovely, soft fabric. How is that for a pick-me-up right after having an operation! I won this fat quarter stack from Julie at Adventures of a Cross Stitch Drama Queen . It is a Riley Blake design called Promenade. I just love the soft, old-fashioned look of it.

I'll be back tomorrow with more, including the pictures from our quilt group. I couldn't be there but thanks to Fran, I have some wonderful quilts to share with all of you. 


  1. Awe, I'm glad to hear you're feeling better. I love salty snacks! =)

  3. I'm glad to hear that you are well on the road to recovery! Hang in there!

  4. Glad to hear you are improving day by day and remember even if you can't sew yet, you can still look at and stroke your fabric!! x

  5. glad to hear you are on the mend....I don't know what I would be doing if I couldn't sew for almost a month!

  6. Glad your feeling better Nancy - Hope you have a happy birthday!!!
