The last 9 months has been a blur.  My wrist had been hurting and was keeping me from doing the things I love. I finally went to see a specialist. Results were not great.  I have had three surgeries since March.  The last surgery involved having a bone graph. The bone graph takes a long time to heal. It has put a restriction on everything I enjoy doing for a long time . No sewing, no gardening, no picking up my grandbabies.  The wrist will never be perfect, but I will be able to use it (I HOPE) once the graph is healed.    I am starting to sew but have to be careful with the time spent sewing.

SO…. I have decided to join A Lovely Year Of Finishes 2015.  I enjoy structure. Goals really help me and I will set a goal keeping in mind the amount of time I am allowed to sew and still heal. This will also help me not sew too much at one time.

My goals will not be large. But once I achieve even a small goal, I will be happy.

the list

TO DO –   Sampler Green Mystery Quilt.

Choose and sew together pieces of material from my stach for backing.  Pin backing and top to be ready to quilt.        This is my choice for A Lovely Year of Finishes.      Linking up with A Lovely Year of Finishes.

  1. I’m so glad to have the update on your wrist! I’ve wondered about that, but hoped that it was merely that the wrist kept you from the keyboard! I know those grafts take a long time to heal – even a bone bruise takes a long time, so I can only imagine how you have been frustrated over the last year. I’m so happy to see you sewing! That’s a great goal for the first month back and for ALYOF. Best of luck with meeting your goal!

    • It has been a long time and I am happy to finally be able to be in the sewing room. Talk with you on your blog soon.
