Today is 4 weeks since my surgery.  PT is going slowly but well.  No active motion of my shoulder until 6 weeks.  No pain except with stretching a an occasional "pinch".  I can use my right forearm so I'm able to do a few things.  I'm driving short distances with 1 hand.  Hardest thing is to put the key in the steering column.  Still can't sew.  stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye

Bob is also doing better slowly.  He has severe cabin fever.  He never was one to sit still for long.

Still difficult to type on my computer.  I am reading.

whoohoo...sounds like progress for both of you..

Constant improvement for both of you. Glad to hear you two are both healing. Hopefully Bob can figure something to make the cabin fever bearable.

Voice to text!   That could be very entertaining!  LOL!

Sorry that you've still got restrictions, but I'm glad you're both on the mend!

I have tried that.  The text turns out to be not exactly what I said.  That can be a problem sometimes and "entertaining" at other times.

How can it be that, with ALL the fabric I have, I do NOT have a light hued turquoise that is needed for a specific unit in this project?  I have plenty of dark and medium turquoise ... but extremely little light and certainly not in the amount that I need.  How very annoying.

So, I visited a local quilt store that had recently relocated to a new store front.  Very nice new place.  I found two potential fabrics and bought some of both.  The one I not chosen won't go to waste. :-)

Well it sounds like you do have a lot of the fabric in your stash and you only lack that one fabric. It is always fun to go get that little bit of fabric to fill in the hole in the stash to complete that project. I do not feel bad for you!

turquoise is a tough color.  I still remember hunting for the perfect turquoise at one of my early AZ retreats.

I wish you could come this year!
