Our group friendship sampler top of 2 years ago.
Finally finished...Happy me.
We used Block- in the Box.
My fabric was Civil War reproduction
Below, the backing.
While in the mountains...I made the Disappearing nine patch,
Five of us did..different fabrics..Thirties has always touched my heart.
Below some random pattern,,,,,not so happy with this one.
Remnants of our fun time, just awaiting borders.
Today was a day to forget.
But, I cannot.
My balance has deteriorated since my fall week Sunday with the needle business.
Today I had an appointment with my knee ortho guy.
New knee great....shoulder almost totally destroyed by arthritis.
Total shoulder replacement scheduled for this February 27th.
Instead of buying fabric...now I m buying canes online...I now have six...
One in the car.....one in the bathrooms..etc
I had thought of Hawaii....but the chance of three operations
in 8 months was just too enticing!!!
He told me that we had to get it done because...
the right hip would be the next..it was going fast.
that would be before the left knee.
He said that he has done 6 major joints on some and it looks like
I could well be one of those.
Degenerative joint disease.
Tears and pain are my bedfellows.
