In Only a Moment
Have I shown you this bag before? I really can't remember right now. In only a moment it went from grocery bag to walker bag. Yes, walker bag. I fell and broke my hip in two places. I was shaking out a pair of DGS Alan's shoes so we could go on a walk, then turned and tripped on the threshold of our patio doors. Alan was right behind me about two feet and in order not to fall on top of him, I twisted to the right and took the full impact of the fall on my hip.
In only a moment the rest of the year has morphed into pain, surgery, coming home to recouperate. The good news is that I don't have a cast, and the pain is manageable (because of my allergies to most pain meds or opiates - I"m only taking Extra Strength Tylenol). I've been home from the hospital for about 18 hours and I'm so tired as if I'd work in the coal mines all day. So I rest 15 minutes and move 15 minutes. LOL - today it took me 30 minutes to brush my teeth. Needless to say, I won't be doing much driving or sewing as it was my right hip, and it's cumbersome moving in the sewing room (and I Don't want to fall). Prognosis is 3 months - yikes. Oh well, what must be must be. I'm hauling out my 26 year old WIP that I am handquilting and will work on that. Its time has come.
Before I fell, I pulled out this quilt top I found in a container to be WIP #15. It has lime green sashing for the RSC 2015 challenge. Don't really have any lime green scraps even though I like the color. I don't know if I will get anything done on it, probably not, but we'll see. It's at least working with the color.
This all happened Friday the 13th, and no, I don't believe all that stuff. For all those of you who've commented on my quilt show post and WIPs Be Gone post, thank you. I'm sure you understand that for a while my time online will be limited and I won't be able to reply very much ( this post has taken most of a day to do what with my limited energy - lol). Be right back - have to walk a bit or I will stiffen up. But I'd still like to hear from you. Though you won't notice, I'll be keeping up with you through Bloglovin' and Facebook.
Take care, happy quilting, and watch where you're stepping.
