This week finds me still sitting after injuring my bad foot. If you want to skip foot talk, go to about 1:40 in the video. Seriously, I explain the whole thing. 😐 Inactivity has found me crocheting pretty much non-stop. I have two more blankets in progress that I didn’t even show today!
In which I share some mail and a couple of finishes for The Linus Connection.
The long version of the doctor’s appointment story is this: my surgeon left her practice, and medicine altogether, in March or April last year. She referred me to one of her colleagues, who has since also left that same practice, but not the medical field. ALL of the doctors my surgeon worked with have now left. Two of them are starting a new practice, but aren’t taking patients until the end of July. I tried to get in with about six different podiatrists and none of them are taking new patients for at least a month. Since I could not get in immediately to see a podiatrist, I have an appointment with an “injury specialist” at my clinic’s urgent care this afternoon. At the very least, I want to make sure I haven’t seriously damaged my already damaged foot! Whew! See why I didn’t want to explain all that in video?!
In which I talk a little bit about Quiltcon and a whole lot about what I worked on over the last week.
We walked around and around and around Quiltcon and enjoyed all the fabulous quilts, the vendors, and each other’s company. The charity quilts were by far my favorites. I might be a bit biased because: A) charity quilts! and B) I saw quite a few of my text fonts floating around out there.
I neglected to say that Jennifer R brought TWO BAGS of Linus quilts she’d quilted, one bag from tops I’d given her to quilt and the other bag full of her quilts to donate as well as one from Laura from Fandom in Stitches. I’ll absolutely do a show and tell of those quilts soon! If you need a long arm quilter, she is AMAZING.
I forgot to mention two things in my video: my BFF Jewells had enough of the bicycle fabric for me to finish the nine patches for the Disappearing Nine Patch and I did get the four quilts for Oz Comfort Quilts off in the mail last week! I want to give a special shout out to my friend Cynthia for helping with shipping for that! ♥
