    Pattie what a good idea. I must have some hexagons ready to work with already cut out. Find them before I go in. Living on your own all problems must be organised before I go in so again you are all stimulating the old grey cells. This board is excellent for that

    How about some english paper piecing? Hope all goes well with your surgery, we'll all be thinking of you.

    Prepare some fabrics for a dresden plate quilt before you go in and applique them onto some squares. Can you tell I want to make one, just hate to take out time to get them ready for appliquing. Get your quilting books out and a notebook and make out lists of quilts you want to make. Sit in front of your fabrics and jot down ideas to make them with. I like to watch home improvement shows too, if you have them available.
    Take care and I hope you get fixed up real soon.

    If you'll be doing hand quilting, be sure to get your quilt marked prior to the surgery!

    will be praying for a quick recovery!!

    You didn't say what kind of surgery you will be having - so it is hard for me to give suggestions - what will you be able to move?

    A cathedral window project is nice for handwork. You could make pillow covers or a lap quilt.
