I'll be off the grid for a while longer. The injections in my neck didn't help at all, so surgery is scheduled for tomorrow. Not how I wanted this to play out, but it is what it is.
There has been no sewing going on. I poked a button or two, but truly didn't even want to look at fabric online. As I said the last time I posted, I've conjured up a bunch of new quilts in my head but that's as far as I've gotten. I probably should at least note what they are because I'm sure I won't remember any of them later.
The new sewing machines are sitting in my garage. I loving run my hand across the boxes every time I walk out there.
I was missing a piece of fabric that I wanted to use to add a border to a quilt to make it bigger. This was the Heritage line from Moda. I even went to the storage room to see if I had inadvertently packed it away. Last night while just sitting in a straight chair in the living room, I remembered where it was. It was in the little tin "suitcase" that the kit came in. I guess I thought that too logical a place to look for it. Anyway, that is found and I can add the simple borders and get it off to be quilted. Don't know when that will be, though, but at least I'm ready.
I stopped by Ginger's for a few minutes last Friday. She is closing the doors on the shop in two weeks. Their inventory is really sold down, but I picked up a bunch of fat quarters of '30s fabrics. One of the bedrooms in my future retirement home will be done up in '30s. Don't laugh! I already have that planned!
So that's it from here. Other than a bunch of medical and dental appointments the last couple of weeks, I've hardly gone anywhere or done anything. Dental -- forgot to mention that the veneer broke on a front tooth a week ago while I was at a doctor's appointment. Went straight to the dentist afterwards. Why does everything happen all at once?
I think I'll have a good result from this surgery. If it doesn't work, then I guess I'll have to retire but I don't want to do that just yet.
Please think happy thoughts tomorrow. Don't know when I'll be back online, but hopefully sooner than later. I look forward to seeing what everyone has accomplished while I've been off the grid!
