    You certainly are making up for lost time. Both tops are great.

Thankfully like you, my hubby, stepped up and did all the cooking, laundry and litter box cleaning. We'd shop together on weekends! What a mess this has been. You are an inspiration to me that things will get normal eventually!
    Next week I go from 3 times a week to twice a week for 2 weeks, and then I see the doc again, and not sure what happens after that. The entire experience was life-changing. I'm just now starting to feel like I'm getting my life back.

    wow, I can see you've been going through withdrawls not being able to sew. Glad your doing better and can't wait for you to be able to quilt them. Love all your quilts. I'm thinking about doing one with the half square triangles like your first pic. That one is gorgeous.
    enjoy your life...it's the only one you have!!!

    I can't believe you've put together so many tops in such a short time, and they are all so pretty.

    Great piecing; my favorite is the 1st one. Continue to heal; follow the doc's orders! We're rooting for you.

    Both of your quilts are beautiful. I normally, don't care for the 2nd pattern as I am more traditional, but yours I love. Hope you get your release soon!

    Good Morning Sharoney,

    I had to sign-in just to tell you 1) sorry about your injury and 2) Your quilts are terrific! The bright triangles makes me think of spring. The quilt with the green sashing and scraps is my favorite.

    Freedom is costly and quilting keeps us busy...

    Hi. Just wanted you to know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I fell in April, 2012 and destroyed both my shoulder rotator cuffs and bicep tendons. Had extensive surgery on both 7 weeks apart and now have 4 screws in each shoulder and a footprint repair on each. They had to remove the bicep tendon and I am scheduled to complete therapy on February 27th. It has been one of the most painful and difficult things I have gone through so my heart goes out to you. I am still not quilting except small projects. Just remember to do what they tell you. The road is long but it is well worth it. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

    Oh, I really like both of your quilt tops! I'm glad to hear that you are doing well after your accident and surgery. I can see that FMQ would really put a strain on your shoulder. At least you can 'piece' and pieced you have....for several very beautiful tops!

    Sew very pretty. Love the HST that's one of my favorite ones to do. The second one reminds me of somethng like Frank Lloyd Wright Prairie Style really like them both.

    Get back to FMQ and repost these 2 beauties! I'll look forward to seeing them.

    Cheering you on to a complete recovery!

    Hubby started grocery shopping with me when I had back surgery. Now, I can't go grocery shopping alone.

    WOW Sharoney that is the same way I tore my rotator cuff 2 years ago. I was picking tomatoes and tripped over a tomato cage too. I shredded my rotator cuff and tore a couple of ligaments and tendons. I have 6 screws in my shoulder. It is almost completely better. Do your exercises. There are a couple of spots that are still a little bit stiff but if I did my exercises it would be fine. Pretty much the only thing that is a little off is when I try to throw something and stretching to reach the top shelf in a closet. Good luck.

    Wow, Twinkie, your post almost made me cry! I feel sorry for myself because I have two plastic anchors in one shoulder- I cannot imagine what it must be like to have both arms out of commission. This has been the most painful thing I have ever been through- and that includes childbirth! There are days when I leave therapy that I just sit in my truck and cry- and not being able to sleep the entire night without waking up at least once because of pain- I can assure you that it has made me very aware of every move I make- I don't ever want to go through anything like this again. But as bad as it is for me, it's worse for you. Thank you so much for posting.

    That is the thing I hear over and over- do your exercises- so I do, even though I hate them
