I started a post a few days ago, but it was one without pictures, and seemed to be too much of a pity party to finish. On Tuesday, a check-up with the orthopedic PA resulted in removing the by then much-too-big cast, and putting on a new one. Again I chose red, because I wasn't yet tired of it.
Things that used to be automatic and no-brainers now require a lot of thought and preparation. Do I REALLY want another cup of coffee? It's no longer a matter of taking a cup to the coffeepot, pouring, and returning to the table. What took 30 seconds is now a 5 minute production. I've passed on a lot of coffee, as well as a lot of other things. Who knew that a leg was so useful? I can honestly say that before Dec.22, I never once gave thought to my fibula. In fact, the only thought I ever gave to anyone's fibula, was to memorize its name and location, to pass a few Biology classes in high school and college. ironic, right?
But you didn't click on this to read about my broken leg. You wanted to see my first finish of 2016! I asked my husband to take a picture, and this is what he took:
Then again, I submitted my first entry for The Best of the Valley Quilt Show, and I encourage you to do the same. Entry forms can be found here, and our online entry option is pretty slick. It worked beautifully. The deadline is February 14, 2016.
And with that, I need to decide if I'm going to a) dig through fabric trying to find suitable binding for the baby quilt I have finished quilting, or b) quilt another baby quilt. I suspect I will choose option b, though with my husband home for the next couple of hours, maybe option a would be better. Trying to do something like that when I'm home alone isn't the wisest choice. Either way, I'll try to have something new to show you in my next post. Goals are good!
