Photo Friday: a hint or two of spring

Last Sunday on the Mountain Farmlet

 

Well, I had intended for this post to go out on Monday, and for it to be a bit more polished, but there never seemed to be an opportune moment to get it done.  Then on Tuesday I had my knee surgery, and you can guess the rest!  I am just this evening able to sit comfortably at my computer.

I have more pictures now that the look and feel of spring have officially arrived, and I will post them later, but I wanted to share with you that I am OK, and now on the road to recovery!

I’m so glad I didn’t wait any longer to schedule or I might have been waiting til mid summer for the surgery.  😳

Pictures, news, and more

First the pictures!

I have been working on a project and forgot to ask if it was OK to share it here, but I will tell you this much…

I have been given the rare honor to repair some vintage quilts for a dear friend.  I am applying bindings to both, and replacing some lost stitching and a couple of disintegrated patches on the other!

This one is a basket design, but I haven’t located its name yet!

A simple Dresden design called Sunflower is below.

Such trust in my nouveau abilities has inspired me to work on a project I had long wanted to do, but did not have faith in my abilities to accomplish!  Needless to say, the fabric has been flying fast and furious here in my studio.

See!

And here it is, my log cabin blocks to be made into a table mat.  This will need quilting and binding and will be for sale on my Etsy site.

And now the news…

The Little Dog is out of his trusses and Lederhosen!  His bite is healed and now the fur needs to grow back in.

Free-at-last!We are  ALL  very happy about that!

And me?  Well, I had my MRI on my knee on Wednesday.  Today the Doctor mentioned a torn meniscus, a cyst, and surgery.  I think I will be putting this off for a few weeks so I can make preparations here.  I will be packing, sorting and prepping for another yard sale, the grand opening of my Etsy shop (yes, really this time) and… reducing my livestock.  Which, by the way, does not include my GEESE!

These were all practical considerations in our preparation to *move, I am just deciding to take care of them NOW instead of later.  It will make my life and healing more copacetic and also mean that I won’t have to pile one more thing onto Bob’s already busy daily routine.

~*~*~*~

*Move?  Did I actually mention moving?  Well, yes I did…  but it will still be a while.  You think the summer’s end is a good goal to shoot for?  Yes?

Well, so do we, but we’ll see about that!
