Machine Quilting Unlimited September-October issue.

 I received my advanced issue of Machine Quilting Unlimited
in the mail today. It was a nice surprise.
I am honored to be in a magazine with so many talented
people. I love this magazine. It always has something
I need to know. Facts and information that make me
a better quilter. I explain my process in making my
big honking quilt in my article.
Today I also got the last of my staples out.
3 weeks post op and I am ready to be done with
all of this medical stuff.
I tried to do some studio work Monday and lasted
a whole 30 minutes. I am definitely not ready to
work yet.
Looks like I will have to wait until 2016 to enter the
Quilt Nationals.  Must not be my time.
I should keep working on this current quilt and
maybe it will be done by 2016.

Summer flowers

 I had a nice peaceful week end,
finally a day with no fever I may have conquered
the infection. I plan to go down to the studio this
morning and do some creating.
Three weeks post op and finally getting back to
The gardens are a riot of yellow.
No matter if it is gloomy  there is sunshine in the flowers.
I read some good books the past 3 weeks.
I even read some of my quilting books.
Life is good.
Have a great day.

Country Roads

 Nothing cures a case of boredom faster than a ride
in the country. Sun dapples through the trees.
Shadows on the road.
Summer in the country.
Must enjoy the warmth and the green while we can.

Still no progress

Still haven't found that energy I was looking for.
I really miss my studio.
Maybe Friday.
Thursday Barb Lucas is coming over to finalize
our plans for our show opening October 31st.
It will be here before we know it.
The weather seems more like fall.
My gardens are still beautiful.
Lots of yellow.
Taking it one day at a time.

Grand Rapids

Still not making much progress with the recovery
from my knee surgery 2 weeks ago.
I am still on antibiotics.
Hopefully another week of this will kick this problem.
This quilt will be at the AQS Grans Rapids show.
If you attend look for it.
I am not going to be able to attend the show.
There is always another year.
I want to do some art but cannot find the energy.
I will keep looking.
Maybe it will show up another day,

Love the sunny sunflowers. 
They just say summer . 
I am fighting celuitus in my leg.
This knee surgery just keeps giving me problems. 
So more antibiotics and the ice machine on my knee.
At least it gives me time to read
The bookshelf is within reaching distance of my chair.
Especially quilting books.7

A touch of Red

 Summer brings us such bright and cherry colors.
Red is one of them.
A spot of red makes a piece of art pop.
 I am struggling with my recovery from the knee surgery.
I want to be back in the studio but my body is not
playing along.
I must be patient.
Meanwhile I read and watch the birds out the window.
