Happy Sunday my Hand-ie friends!
What is your Hand-ie Super Power???? Mine is Hand quilting and I made progress this week! I finished all the wavy lines in this wide border you see…
Rolled the frame and started marking my next ideas…
And I got all the wavy lines and the purple hearts and support stitching for that DONE!
I even put on fresh nail strips which is an all fingers on deck sort of job! YAY 🙂
I am linking all this lovely hand-ie progress to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching HERE <<<< I plan to spend my day stitching the pretty pattern to the left of my hand in big stitch dark purple and that heart will get a special embroidery treatment though all the layers too! Come back next Sunday to see how I stitch those purple hearts in the Purple Heart Quilt I am making for our bed!
Valentine’s Day was busy and unfortunately I also had a mini seizure when talking to the nurse at my doctor’s office so once I finally got in touch with someone at my neurologists office… off to the pharmacy for my 3rd medication to treat this problem I will take twice daily… Good news is I am having no side effects to all these meds and there are still meds to reach for if I need them down the road and we just started this one. Also… my honey got me these…
The fragrance of these were so amazing I almost forgot I had had a 10 second long “laughing seizure”… I am never aware of a seizure or have an “aura” they are coming or came… I only sense peoples’ reaction to the seizure afterwards… and the nurse I was chatting with when I had it was concerned but my honey was nearby to console us both!
Rick has been back to making quilt blocks….
The center one sold to a lady who ordered the one on the left but fell in love with the center one when offered all 3 as options for a birthday present for her daughter coming in March. Well Monday is a USPS holiday as it is Presidents’ Day so we will mail it out Tuesday… if you are interested in either of the other 2 they both measure 9 5/8″ square by 1 3/4″ deep and are signed by my honey with his initials and the year… $50 includes shipping in the USA 48 to you my bloggy friends! Otherwise on eBay they are plus the shipping and safe travels in our custom bought boxes 😀
My hyacinth will be planted in autumn here in our yard somewhere special… it has a baby in the pot too… so we should have 2 nice bulbs to plant in 2 separate locations!
I love the gift of a potted flowering plant or green plant that is low maintenance 🙂
Here are my nice straight legs…. there was still some swelling on the right leg in this pic…
I start Physical Therapy at a new place tomorrow morning and hope to work the last of the swelling off on the bike and other pt maneuvers… but I have resorted to wearing a TED hose compression stocking over my clean and dry bandage once we washed it good and put on the extra one I was sent home with 🙂
So all is now well and let’s hope it stays that way… Wednesday I see the Physician’s Assistant in Chattanooga … we will see if she is happy when the dressing is removed and all is seen… I have been doing physical therapy on my own and have better bend and stretch than I expected… but so not nearly as good as I would have had if I had had p.t. all along since my immediate post op time over a week ago! I use a walker early in the morning now… a cane or nothing at home… and a cane when out and about 🙂 This is much more focus forward than my first knee replacement and for that I am glad!
Here is hoping you have a wonderful week ahead and focus on this moment of this day to keep it all even flowing!
