I'm feeling stronger!

It's been a long 3 weeks since my surgery.
But I feel better each day.
I start Cardiac rehab next Wednesday.
Hopefully, that will get me back on my feet.

I just have to thank my friend Joyce!
Joyce came and spent the first 2 weeks with me.
What a trooper!
She changed my bandages without flinching
and was at my beck and call.
She cooked Mike & I delicious meals,
especially love her homemade chicken and dumpling soup!
I couldn't have made it thru the tough days without you.
Thank you Joyce.

My first "outing" was Friday for a Doctor visit.
He asked me if I'd been out dancing yet.........
funny-funny man.

On Saturday I just had to go to our local quilt show.
I had 2 quilts entered.
Remember the quilt I made for my granddaughter
"Evening In Paris"?

To my surprise it WON 2 ribbons!

Remember my Oak Leaf & Reel?

I'm happy to say 4 of my customers won ribbons also!
I'm so excited for them.
They were a pleasure to quilt for.

That's about all for now.
My life is in the slow lane for awhile.
Hopefully I'll get back to blogging soon.

Thank YOU again for all your thoughts and prayers.
I know they have made my journey a little easier.


  1. I hope you're feeling better soon. I love it that your quilts won ribbons, but i don't think they rated them nearly high enough!

    Nice to see you posting again. I'm glad your quilts won ribbons! You do such great work. Hope you'll be able to go dancing soon. That'll make your doctor happy!

  3. Karen,

  4. I'm STILL getting caught up on older blog posts, and am glad to read your recovery was progressing well and what a good friend to stay and help help!
