I Can Sew!

I can! I can sew just fine! I have no stamina, but with lots of breaks to rest my very tired arm, I can iron, cut and sew!

I had great news at the doctor's visit on Tuesday, my x-rays showed the bone was healing very nicely and I was instructed to go about sling-free and to move my arm as much as possible. I am free! Well, almost! I can't lift my arm very high and I have little strength but I start physical therapy next week to help with that. I spent the last three days happily pottering about in my studio.


I got all my strip sets sewn and cut. 


Before I knew it I had the first clue all finished! The second clue came out this morning and can start cutting those pretty peachy fabrics and sew flying geese. Lots and lots of flying geese.


The weather has been mild enough for me to leave the back door open and let Molly pretend to be an indoor/outdoor dog. She mercilessly teases the four little neighbor dogs and you can see some of them lined up at the fence,  begging for her attention.

"Sorry, Mom. I can't help it if those little yappy dogs bark like mad every time I run laps!"

Dash has been out of town all week for work and Molly has been quite worried. She will be so happy this evening when he returns! I still can't play fetch correctly, my aim has disappeared! Molly cheerfully fetches whatever object she's brought me to throw even though it went wonky. Probably good practise and exercise for me, as my hobbies are. All this cutting and sewing and moving...I think I can already move a little easier even though I'm pretty sore!

I am off to start more cutting and sewing. Flying geese, here I come!


Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Hi Sharon. I found you by following many rabbit trails. I live in Broken Arrow, Ok. You appear to be healing quite well with your arm. I am a quilter and enjoy cross stitch, too. I have fibromyalgia so I don't have much energy for doing much. Your quilt is going to be beautiful.

Great that you are able to move your arm again. And that sewing and cutting fabrics isn't a problem.
Nice start of the mystery quilt.

Great news about your arm, I been there several years ago it was a miserable time doing everything one armed. Great you are back to sewing and I'm sure Molly doesn't mid the a wonky game of fetch.

How nice to have a fenced in back yard for her to play in. And somehow it looks like I missed this post. It just showed up in my reader today and before I looked at the date I was thinking "oh no your arm is giving you problems again?" haha.
