Oh my, it's Feb. 5th already, where did January go? I'm feeling better, esp. these last few days, finding it easier to get around, but still not enjoying any low seating ( like sofas ) so that makes it kinda hard to curl up with a good book or movie. I only used the walker for a couple days, never have used the cane in the house, but I do use it outside. Not ready for long walks yet, but am happy to walk out to the mailbox pain free for a change.






However, I have been quilting ! I don't have a big picture of Julia's quilt, but a couple small ones I will share. . . and maybe I can coax her to take a picture of the whole quilt and email it to me and I will post it later. She did a beautiful job of choosing the colors in this batik quilt, and her piecing was fabulous. I would say perfect, but she will not like that ( and guess what, Julia. . .I just got to "imply" that the piecing was perfect without getting into trouble ! ha ha ) You know how us longarmers like to look at a well pieced top, and how we REALLY love working with a top that lays flat ! ( just ask any longarmer ! )
