Happy Spring & National Quilting Day — and a BIG Thank YOU!

Saturday, March 20th, 2010

Happy Spring and Happy National Quilting Day! Did you know that the National Quilting Association has designed a free pattern for your group or guild as you celebrate National Quilting Day?

I want to say a BIG “Thank YOU!” to everyone who wrote such warm and encouraging notes (both on the blog and through private email) to my last blog post.  It meant more than you can imagine! I really, REALLY appreciate your all your kindness, concern and understanding.

Status update – I have made good progress this week. I am down to one crutch (comfortably) and doc says I can get rid of it as soon as I feel ready.  I am ‘shooting’ for Tuesday, but we will see.  I have been diligent in working on my Physical Therapy, home exercises, stationary bike (I’m up to 35+ minutes now and have added resistance & a little speed), as well as the 6-8 hours a day on the CPM. It’s still a little (OK, a LOT) frustrating how much time is eaten up by all these requirements; but I believe that my investment of time and energy now will pay off.  In fact, I am already beginning to see proof of that.

Patience–especially with myself–has never been my strong suit, so I am learning life lessons on many levels. Thanks again for your kindness, encouragement and understanding.  I truly feel like I’m well on my way back to my energetic, creative self.
