These are close up shots of the two angels I have finished. I don't have good light today for picture taking. The fabric I used is a tan crackle design. Looks white in the close-ups. The first picture shows the fabric much better.
I have no idea how much quilting I will be able to do this month. It has been almost four weeks since my knee replacement surgery but I still have some recuperation time to go. I am going to use this stitchery project as my January "Charming Girls Club" submission. I feel I can get these done and made into a small quilt.
I have been watching lots of television this past month. Not much else I could do laying in bed. I can help you plan a wedding, pick your wedding dress, select a very expensive cake, prepare your house for sale, help you find your first home, show you how to flip a house, how to clean your house. I can tell you all about 18 Kids and Counting, the Little Couple, the Rollofs, how to lose weight, update you on The Young and the Restless. You get the idea! Too much television!
My physical therapy is coming along fine. I have good bend in my knee but oh does it ache! I had been warned by the physician assistant that works with my surgeon that the aching would set in once all the medications injected in the knee area wore off. Still it is not as bad as my first knee surgery. I should start outpatient physical therapy this next week. I don't need it for the bend in the knee but to keep things moving well.
My husband fixed sauerkraut & pork in the crock pot for out New Year's Day meal. That is supposed to bring us good luck in the New Year. I know different parts of the country have their own traditional meals for New Year's Day. That was the tradition from where we lived in Ohio in our growing up years and early marriage. I hope it works!
Stop back again for another visit soon!
