No Quilt Photo Today

No more quilt photos for a while - we'll have to put the stories of the rest of the Lone Star quilts on hold for a bit

First, thanks to all that have emailed, texted and called, wondering where I have been. It makes me feel good to know you care - and thank you to those that continue to check my blog for a new post.

But there won't be a new post for a while yet - and not very often even then.  I had back surgery on Nov. 27 after a painful trip to the ER in the ambulance (those things are not built for comfort, let me tell you). The surgery was successful and now the long, slow recovery.  I have my laptop on a wooden tv tray, tilted towards my lap, as I type this note. Not the most comfortable way to type - but it is working for a bit anyway.  And I can't sit in one position very long anyway.

Physical therapy, visits to the acupunturist, doctor visits, hospital bed and nice walker - and helpful family and friends - those are my companions for now - later I'll be back to share photos when I can.

Have a very wonderful holiday - and thanks for checking in with me.

glad you are in recovery...computers are amazing ways to pass time.
