A new month is like a blank paper, ready for me to fill, with colours and shapes.
A new month is like a fresh beginning, and I really like that feeling :-)
The days are getting longer and we now have more daylight day by day, even if we still have a lot of snow. The light bear tidings of spring - a good tiding after the long dark winter.
February passed without much sewing. I have earned my black belt in R&R, and it is good to have time to rest too. I am healing well and I do my physical exercises every day.
I finished one thing - the stitchery pillow, and added 6 NI blocks to my name. I also did hand quilting on the Watermelon quilt, so all in all a fairly productive month after all. I did not start anything new.
The gastro surgeon did a lot of lovely stitching on my body, internal and external, and he is welcome to join my quilt guild any time.
He can also have my February stitching points, don't you think? ;-)
I have a friend and co-quilter working as a surgical nurse and she asked if she could show the surgeon what I wrote about him in a mail to her, and I told her she could, as I am sure he will be happy I am happy. He is a very pleasant man as well as a top surgeon.
February passed without me buying any fabrics, and I am polishing my halo :-)
My plans for March are to keep on making Nearly Insane blocks. As you see I have already made 2.
I will also keep on doing hand quilting and maybe start a new scrap quilt for teaching in the autumn. I am really looking forward to teach again and I have been working in EQ6 with some new ideas.
They looks good so far, but I need to do some test blocks.
I also have room for some stitchery.
No lifting of more than 1 kg (2lbs) for the duration of March, so I will not lift my fabric boxes yet and will work in small steps, with what I have here at my desk.
My main focus will be to keep on keeping on healing and building muscles, as well as getting back in shape under the close supervision of my physiotherapist.
I still need to do a lot of R&R too.
