Trying to sit still.....

Waiting to heal!

Doin' my best to follow the doctor's orders and be still.....wanted to show you some of what has kept me occupied:

I'm enjoying the stitching; I don't usually take a lot of time for embroidery, but this is working for me as I wait until I can be up and around again.

Hope all of you are having a great week!

I will try to hurry back!!

I will be back soon.....I might visit some blogs while I down, but I probably won't post for a few days!

I'm having orthopedic surgery - replacing a joint in my big toe, so that I will be able to walk without bone crunching on bone! Ugh. An implant....will that mean I'm bionic? 

I think the hardest part will be sitting still for a couple weeks to try to keep the swelling down!! (Grin)

Maybe I can work out a way to have my foot higher than my heart and still be sewing with my beloved vintage machine, Nora? Ya think?

(I have some tea towels prepped for embroidery, and a table runner sandwiched for hand-quilting....a good book to read, too. And I can always watch some great lessons on Craftsy!! Hmmmmm, this is starting to sound like a vacation, no?)

Be back soon, I hope!!

Lots of love and hugs to all,
