Hello From Recovery!

 Thank you for ALL the kind comments & words of encouragement after my recent surgery.  I'm on the road to recovery albeit a slow, winding, road!  But all is good and I hope to be back to my better self soon.

I've done a little straightening up in my sewing room and  by a little I mean little but I do a bit and then go rest for a while.  I'm bored, I'm tired, I want to sew!

I thought making two pillowcases would be a good start.  But it felt like I was sewing drunk.  My mind and hands did not communicate well. And my mind could not comprehend the burrito method of making a pillowcase!  Where have all my brain cells gone?

Turning out pretty well

One pillowcase

When I was finished sewing my forearms and hands were sore?! and I was exhausted so I took a half day's rest.  This is my nest.  My favorite recliner, usually with my cute little pug Bobo, belly pillow/back pillow and this enormous sized, truly wonderful heating pad! 

Two pillowcases

I took a shower and fixed at my hair.  I'm in the upright position (for a while) and acting human!

12 days post op

I do have a dress pattern printed, taped together and cut out.  It only took 3 days!  but it's a start.  I hope to get the fabric ironed and the pattern pieces cut out soon.  But there is no rush since I do not plan on going anywhere.

Thank you again for all your support, advise & words of encouragement.

Happy Sewing until next time.....................
