I Remembered How

I was starting to think I may have forgotten how to sew. I haven't spent much time with my beloved sewing machine in the last 2 weeks. But last night, I told Ernie, if you need me, I'll be in my sewing room, you'll have to holler at me. My book on tape will be on and the machine will be working. Amazing how he didn't need me for a very long time.

I got my wall hanging put together and quilted. I need to stitch on the hanging sleeve but that is a tv time progect. This is the first time I've used prairie points. There are a couple of wonky ones but it the grand scheme of things, is it going to matter??? I didn't think so.

Today's big project is laundry and bedding...ugh, my 2 least favorites but at least I can sew during the process. I have a couple of projects I want to get to and I have quilts that are begging me to get quilted. Send me good vibes for a smooth day..........

Ernie update: Yesterday was 2 weeks with his new knee. Tuesday was the surgeon post op appointment and he was very pleased. The staples were removed and he will see him again in 6 weeks. Yeah! Friday was physical therapy and I needed to stop at the grocery store to pick up some things. He decided to go in with me.......Winco is ginormous! So we did the short, quick version of grocery shopping, he stood at the end of the isle with the cart and I did the go grab what I need thing. LOL Saved lots of money that way and I got some needed exercise! We came home, he sat on the couch with ice on his knee and I did my normal thing. Life is good!

Glad Earnie is doing well, and glad you are getting back to your sewing. Love the wall hanging.

I was fortunate enough to go to the Houston International Quilt Festival and wow....the quilts were amazing.

Love your wall hanging, Judy! It looks like Ernie has someone ELSE taking very good care of him, too (the black lab). Glad you had some sewing time... it totally changes our mood and outlooks when we can do that!
