My DD is home on her fall vacation. A whole week home from school. And we have a great time together. That's why I haven't blogged so much this week. She and I have been on several walks where she has taken some lovely photos for her school projects. I will show you later when she have uploaded them to my machine. She also took a photo of me so I will update my profile with a more winterly photo.



At the sewing front: I got so inspired from last the show and tell at our last quiltmeeting so I have found my box with japaneese fabrics and started to look at them. I have traced five flowers for applique so far and I hope this weekend I can prep the blocks. And I've decided I'll applique them on machine. Look what this armproblem is doing :) Me..........applique on machine. Well I'll give it a try. Perhaps this is one thing I have to get used to in the future. Not so much handsewing and become more friendly with my sewingmachine.



I was at the hospital again on tuesday and the doc is very happy about the progress in my arm. So I did not get another cortison injection.........JIIIIPPPIIIIIII.............and I'm allowed to start a little bit physio...............YEAK (know it will be painful). And the good news is that I'm feeling so much better. But the doc told me to stay home from work another two months. He told me the arm needed another three or four months relaxing and exercise with the physio if I was lucky. If not perhaps a year. So I listen to the doc and physio and do what they tells me.


Still there is a lot of no replyers who ask me questions and I would love to comment back, but I'm not able to do that. Look at Piperfic's blog where she's got a tutorial how to change your no reply. PLEASE check if you are a no-replyer and change it.

The answer to some of you no-replyers about the mini RR. Yes you are welcome to use this in your quiltgroup. I would love to hear about it and see the progress on it.



Have a nice weekend all of you. I'll try some sewing.


Saying for today:
You know you are drinking too much coffee
when you can thread a sewing machine
while it's running!

Take care with your shoulder! (So I was totally wrong thinking you loved pink and green...!)

Libby said...

So glad to hear the good news that your arm is improving. It's hard to follow the doctor and not sew - but it will be worth it when all the recovery is complete. Enjoy the time with your daughter . . . have lots of fun *s*

Charlene said...

I like your floating witch - cute! Your fabrics are so pretty. Look forward to seeing your applique flowers!

Patti said...

May, after the past three weeks I have a very small idea of what you've been going through. You have such a marvelous attitude for someone who is going to take so long to heal. I'm using you as a model - if you can do this so can I. Ever since I sewed a lot on Wednesday my shoulder has hurt more so I've stopped. Sure isn't easy!

Darlene said...

Continuing to follow your doctor's orders will make a huge difference in the long run. Take care!

I'm glad your DD was visiting this week - fun!

Thanks for the TAG, I'll post on my blog soon.

A year eh? Seems like a long time in a crafters life to me. Hope you heal sooner....I am in agony with mine right now, too much playing with my granddaughters this weekend. I hope I haven't done too much damage ggggrrrrr! I like the meme, its great to hear about other crafty people and how much we all have in common, even films! I'd like to bo in the cabin with you girls too, sounds like the best fun ever!
