I'm Upstairs!!!!

I am so excited to be back in my workroom.  I fell at the end of November, spent three weeks in a non-weight bearing cast (over Christmas, my birthday and New Year's) and then six weeks in a boot.  Now I am in athletic shoes and doing much better and can climb stairs again.  

After four months, my daughter and her friend come over yesterday and moved  all my stuff upstairs.  It is amazing how much comes down over four months - you kind of lose track until it is time to bring it back upstairs and put it away.

I have been busy last night and today.  I have had four seasonal wall hangings on my design wall for way too long.  I got the bindings done, batting cut and backings ready for them.  Now I just have to do some quick quilting and sew on the bindings and I'll be ready to finish them off.  I also got a baby quilt ready for my daughter to quilt.  Her goal is to quilt 20 items this year and so far I have four for her to work on.  Aren't I helpful???

Last night I also started knitting a scarf that I have tried to work on several times.  I couldn't figure out why the pattern wasn't working.  As usual it was my fault - the finished size is 52" in length and I kept reading it as cast on 52 stitches.  Once I got my act together and reread the directions I realized that I should cast on 57 stitches.  It is going very smoothly now!!

I'll be posting pictures soon.

I hope all of you are having a productive week/month.

Glad you are having a good time back upstairs and keep those quilts coming (after this week!).
