What Are You Working On Now?   General Discussion

Judy, I've always liked thinking the "naughty" thoughts!

My knee is healing and doing well.  It's been 3 1/2 weeks and I'm walking twice a day without a cane, cooking, doing light housework (confused) and driving!   Being able to drive gave me such a sense of freedom and actually gave my DH real freedom since he doesn't have to chauffeur me to PT, doctors appointments, quilt guild meetings, etc.  I have my 4 week checkup with the surgeon Wednesday and then I should be done, at least until I get the other knee replaced.  Thanks for asking.

I bought some pretty pots of mums today to put on our deck where we can see them from our sun room.  My summer planters were looking a bit weary, especially after the 95 degree days we had last week.

Glad to hear all is going well with you knee surgery.  Been thinking and wondering how you were doing.

If you want to send that hot weather my way we sure could use it. It's Oct and we have had sooooo much rain all summer but especially in Sept that there has been flooding. Flood warning went off again this morning, rained most of the night and off and on all day.

Thank you Jo!  I'm pleased with my progress.  I hope the surgeon is just as pleased this Wednesday.

I'll trade you the hot weather for some rain.  It is terribly dry here.  

I ought to pull out my Dear Jane blocks. I've had them all put together in kits just waiting!

I am working on my **FINAL** Deco Garden block!  I've completed (48) 12" floral blocks, (28) 6"x12" border blocks, and (4) 6" corner blocks.

I'm ALMOST ready to trim them all to size.  Dang, I can hardly wait!  :-)

Woohoo!  The end is in it's going to be gorgeous.

I'm putting the binding on the last quilt I did while exiled in Big Spring.  It was a very unhappy time and I will be glad to get it gifted and gone.

Daisy, I did not know that you had started a Dear Jane project. It is quite an undertaking.,

but, I must put mine aside to accomplish a baby quilt and finish a shop project.

I actually started it so many years ago when it made its first appearance in a quilt magazine back in 1999 or 2000. Back when the book was out but long before the software was available. I bought a ton of civil war fabrics and assigned them to photo copies of each bock. I haven't worked on it in more than a dozen years.

How about if you try using p-ping? 

The hyphen seems to make it okay with my computer.
