A Quick Hello

Just wanted to say "HI!" and let you know I'm still kicking.
It's a slow process.
I'm not healing as quickly as the Dr would like,
so it looks like another few weeks with this wound vac.
What a drag carrying a 5 lb "purse" everywhere I go.
Not to mention injecting myself every 8 hours with antibiotics.

Oh, enough whining!

Today was the first time I've gone downstairs to my sewing room
and actually felt like doing something.
I worked on borders for a
red, white and blue log cabin top I started a few months ago.
I'm determined to use all the strips I have left from the
blocks. A scrappy piano key border.
Not very original.
Who knows......maybe I'll have a picture to share!

I miss quilting on my longarm machine.
And the hum of my Janome.
And my quilting buddies.
Won't stay away so long next time.
Have a wonderful weekend.
Stay safe.
