    Some of you know that I broke my foot in early September. Living on my own and the lack of mobility has been exceptionally frustrating. While my foot was broken I couldn't do a lot of activities, like driving, cooking, and using my sewing machine.

    Well my healing has progressed very well (an absolute HUGE blessing). I am now allowed to start sewing on my machine. This is good physical therapy as I build up the muscles in order to get ready to drive.

    Can't wait.... anyway this is the project (WIP) that I picked up to get me back to the machine. It's a double wedding ring. The fabrics remind me of my grandmother in the 50's on a sunny day. Hope you enjoy my little sewing spot.
