    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.

    So sorry to hear you have had an accident, sounds like you are well on the mend now tho, what better therapy than to sew, lol, I love your colour choice for the new quilt and am impressed it is to be the wedding ring pattern, I love this pattern but it is way beyond my skill level. Looking forward to seeing it come together.
    Take care,
    All the best.
