It seems the dread has become reality

I have been fighting and hoping that surgery on rotator cuff would not happen.  Looks like it will anyway!  Nearly a year since the incident and the left arm has gotten worse.  Constant pain, decreased movement, the list goes on..........

So, I will be in a cast/sling for at least 3 to 6 weeks ...won't really know till the surgery.  I put it off till right before holidays in December.

My dawling, well, he thinks he will be helping etc etc...but the reality, not so much.  My sweet son #3 he will be my "nurse"!  We are already developing a plan of action.  It is the clothing situation...will not be able to move the arm so am thinking of getting a big garbage bag, cutting a hole for the head and the right arm...what do you think?  They come in all forms of colors...I could get Holiday saran wrap and put on my feet...festive...No?   I have time I could sew a garbage bag....BLAH!

Baltimore album

We had a wonderful getaway.....NOT long enough!   I fell in love with the quilt at Winterthur in Delaware

And....I could not contain myself...yes...I bought the pattern...I love piecing by needle...fabric and scissors.  I hope to start soon but then who am I fooling...I have 50 million rugs to hook and 10 million quilts to can dream! More pictures

The last is the best.....I love my dawling so much...he planned this for me...everything that I would love.  Everything!!! Old historic mansions, textiles, beautiful gardens, hand holding walks......even with my gimp leg and shoulder!
