I thought when I was out of commission with my foot, with not childcare kiddos here, I would be the quilting queen….nope. Didn’t happen…at least not yet. I’ve gotten some things done but not as much as I anticipated. For one the anesthesia and the pain meds always make me loopy and tired and foggy. Plus the first few days I was told foot up all the time unless I was using the bathroom.
Once that time period was up, I thought then I’d sew a lot…that didn’t happen then either. If I was up too much my foot would swell. Also it’s an awkward position to sit in with one foot on the pedal and one up on a foot rest.
I did get some things done though…..see?
Here are all the small four patches I need for Fair and Square. They need ironing yet but they are all there.
I started in on the bigger border pieces for the quilt but I still need to sew more on those.
I am kind of on a stand still because I had to stop and work on a wedding quilt…What do you think?I know..not much. The goal is to really work on this over the next week though. I need to have some progress made on it because the wedding is just around the corner in September.
The sad part is that even if I do get it sewn, I don’t know if I can quilt it until the end of September and my cast is gone. It will be past wedding time but I guess I’ll just have to do an IOU. I don’t know what else to do!
This is a busy week….I know, I know…I need to keep my foot up and I will as much as possible. I’m not screwing up this healing process.
