I’m behind on catching you up with the happenings in my mailbox. I’ll be really good for awhile and then I get behind.
Call me bad on two accounts…one for being behind and the other for not knowing that sending a congratulations card to grandmas was a thing. I’ve gotten three now and I didn’t even know it was thing….I admit to definitely liking it though. Thanks to all who have sent them. It’s a treat.
I got a charity quilt top in from Susan in Manchester Iowa. What a sweetie….I’m making you all wait to see it until it’s on the quilt frame.
While I’m mentioning the quilt frame I’ll tell you this…. I’m slowly trying to get there. I have been walking without my boot and the discomfort has been getting less and less. That’s so wonderful. When I first got my cast off it was bad and VERY painful to try to walk. I would get shooting pain through my ankle and up my leg. I went online and found some exercises I could do with my ankle to lessen and pain and it helped a lot. It’s made it all bearable. Now most of the discomfort comes from the swelling. I can’t seem to get it down no matter what I do. If anyone has suggestions besides keeping it up, please pass them on. Until the swelling is a little more manageable I can’t be at the quilting machine much. I am working on the baby quilt but that is only at short stretches at a time. I’m trying to patient…really I am!
I also got a donation from a reader with money to be used for the mailing the charity quilt out. That was very much appreciated. Too often when I am writing a blog post about a finished charity quilt I don’t take time to thank those have donated money for batting, thread and postage. You too are very needed and appreciated in this charity quilt work.
Thanks to everyone who thought of me and the charity quilting project. I thank you!!
