I am typing with one finger so bare with me on typos and not so great grammar. Friday, I finally had the rotator cuff surgery. All I can say is thank goodness they only made 4 little holes. The pain is strong but don't even want to think how much more pain there would be if they had to cut more tissue and muscle like in the olden days. Sleep is a joke. Mostly pass out for minutes at a time. I am getting better at dodge the grandchildren! Those little darlings are fast and still think grandma is a ladder. They want to lay claim to my lap and get some grandma hugs. Still they make me smile and I really need to.
August was a blur. I finished Ambers quilts. I also made her husband a vest with 8 inside pockets, front and back. He works outside and though it is in the 90,s work wants him to wear long pants. His office has no AC so there is no relief from the heat. I made the pockets so he could insert some homemade ice bags that stay pliable. Amber found a recipe online for making them with rubbing alcohol and dish soap. She used soft soap instead because it was cheaper. I made Velcro closures in the front and a slots on the sides so he could tighten and loosen vest to accommodate bags. This way he can fit vest to hug his torso. Works great.
I managed to get one Row by Row sown this week, It is from The Quilting Loft in Seattle WA.
I love it. I do want to modify it and add the Space Needle.
It was fun and fast, The kit has enough to do a second skyline..
Well time to jump back in bed for a nap. I am hoping that I can sew again real soon.
