I had surgery a few weeks ago and I'm off work for 6 weeks. I'm feeling fine now, still a little slow and can't lift anything heavy, but not ready to go back to work yet by any means.
While I was off I had so many things planned, I mean I could stitch for 8 hrs a day right???? I have visions of finishing something, anything!! I took out 4 wool appliqué projects to get done, I have material to do 6 place mats and we won't even start to count the WIPs/UFOs that are in my bins waiting for attention.
Well I've not stitched a stitch in weeks, I've not sewn my rag quilts, not cut out one thing on the wool appliqué and I only finished 1 of the 2 stockings……
Oh well, I have lots of plans for 1st of the year, and I will also be back to work and starting my busy season, so look for lots of progress!! I work better under pressure (yes, I love Queen and Under Pressure is one of my right tones!!)
So if my expectations could only live up to reality, I would be one stitching fool!!
But the time hasn't been totally wasted, I did make cookies from my Grandmother's receipts :) They have been sent to various people so I'm not eating them all myself :). Below are pictures of 3 of the 5 kinds I made. Not shown were my Twisties and the Church Windows - all so yummy!! Still owe hubby a buttermilk pie, maybe tomorrow or for sure Christmas eve :)
