    New project while recouperating from surgery

    At the young age of 48 I have to have a full hystorectomy because I have a 7mm mass on one of my ovaries... So with that said I decided to get together some hand sewing together for while I am bed bound to work on. I have always wanted to do the Sunbonnet Sue quilt and since I now have a 1 year old granddaughter I am going to make her one.

    Sorry I could only get one picture to upload, there are six squares in all.

    Beautiful block! Hope you feel better soon. I was 42 when I had my hysterectomy. I have done well after recovering from the surgery.

    Wishing you a speedy recovery. They are right about getting up and walking. Less chance of getting blood clots and you do not want to ever have a blood clot if you can help it. Love your Sun Bonnet Sue. How many are you planning on makeing for granddaughter's quilt?

    I love Sunbonnet Sue and yours is adorable. I had my hysterectomy done at 23 for ovarian cancer, and my daughter had hers done last week at 34. Live goes on. Be kind to yourself and don't forget those daily walks...the first few steps are the hardest. Wishing you a speedy recovery.
    Quilting is my PASSION not my pass time.

    I had my hysterectomy in August. It was a full hysterectomy becauseit included the ovaries. I spent one night in the hospital and came home the next day. My OB did it robotically! I have five 1" scars on my tummy in the shape of a frown. I was on pain medication for 3 days and back to work in a week and a half. I was amazed at the recovery. I feel great - no complications. You should ask about robot surgery. It was done with the DaVinci robot. There is a website. I read all about it.
    I hope yours goes as well as mine did. Good luck and God bless.

    WOW! I am amazed at how young alot of you are that have already had this surgery. Thank you for your words of encouragement and your advice I will definately use it.

    For those who asked I am doing six SB blocks with different dress colors. I have not decided whether to make squares to border the blocks or strips. The frame fabric will be the same as the dress. That is about as far as I have gotten on the design.

    Good luck and good thing you have hand sewing to do!
    I was 34 and had a very large incision across my abdomen. I thought I would be able to sew no problems, HA, boy was I wrong!!! I didn't have any hand sewing to do and about drove myself crazy thinking of all the things I could be doing with 6 weeks off of work!!!!

    I wish you a speedy recovery and you will feel better working on that precious quilt. I did mine at 52 and it was the best thing I ever did. Hallelujah, no more monthly stuff to deal with - oh how great !!!! Your little gran daughter will love her quilt. Thank you for sharing and enjoy your quilting time recuperating.
