I returned from a quilting cruise to Hawaii on Oct. 13 and proceeded to fall and broke my right leg on Oct. 20. After a short stay in the hospital and 14 days in rehab I am home now. So I can finish the binding on a quilt, but I am beginning to make a sample for LQS. Thank goodness for my Singer featherweight machine and table.

Donna I am so sorry about your leg! This year seems to be the year for broken feet & legs. I'm happy that you did go on the cruise though. And that this accident happened after your return. Also very good news that you are home healing now. Please take care & follow the Drs orders! {{{{{HUGS}}}}}

So sorry to hear your news, but a good excuse to sit indoors and quilt all day. :)
