I needed something to do while waiting. Waiting for what you ask?? My DH has gone under the knife again, this time for a total shoulder replacement. Plus they did a rotator cuff repair just for good measure!! So I spent a total of 5 1/2 hours in the hospital waiting room. I knew I would need a project to help pass the time and had been saving the "ripping off the paper" stage from these arcs for that very purpose.
So far I have about 80 or 90 arcs done. I've been wanting to do a pickle dish quilt for a while and now I have a start. Yay :).
Pulling off all the papers took longer than I thought and I had quite a few people in the waiting room stop by to ask what I was doing. Being a quilter is always so much fun for me, no matter where I am.
It was definitely worth it, the points are so pretty and now that chore is behind me. Next will be sewing on the melons - not totally looking forward to this step. I still haven't decided how big it's going to be or exactly what the final colors will be, but I'm crazy about what's going on so far. These are mostly leftovers from my Easy Street I did last spring.
Now for some more pictures (thanks for indulging this Nana Girl).
Love this picture - just looking at all the different sizes :). We walked down to the beach one night after dinner - the beach is beautiful just before the sun sets. It's hard to believe my grandson (right in the middle) is only six - he might just take after his daddy (who is 6'7")!! LOL
Here are my 2 precious granddaughters...
and my newest love (3 weeks old today)!
I need to get back to the patient - we just got home from the hospital today. What I've learned so far is that major shoulder surgery is not for the faint of heart! Wish me luck,
