The First Sixty

In the first 60 years of my life (like there'll be a second 60), I was blessed with not needing any surgeries. Now, in the last seven months, there's been two. I hope this pattern changes. Thursday, I had surgery for a torn miniscus on my right knee. I'll be good as 60 in no time!

It's been so hot outside that I'm hibernating inside with the a/c and these projects. Finished the little "Leftovers" mini, the stitches on the scissors holder and another cross stitched ornament from Little House Needleworks. I'm also up to date on the Moda U "Sweet Pickins" mystery. AND...the "Sweet Sixteen" birthday quilt for my granddaughter is on its way to Abby!

Now I could list the projects that I am behind on or the ones listed as UFOs, but that would be a loooooong post!

Hope your knee is recovering nicely and that you find it easier to be up and around soon. The heat wave is hitting us too and I'm doing what you're doing, staying in the a/c and stitching when I can. :)

Your leftover mini inspires me... I could make a few dozen --- thanks for this post!

Sorry for your surgeries...you did good for 60 years...hopefully, this trend of surgeries will be your last. Love your projects.

Wishing you a speedy recovery. Love your mini quilt.

Hi Jeanne Hope the knee is healing nicely. I had a replacement two years ago, and there is a lot of rehab to do. This is good weather to sit with your leg propped up and sew. Your projects look great! Take care.

Sorry about your surgeries. Hope your knee is healing nicely. Think of it as a blessing...you have to stay inside in the a/c. Love your projects.

I hope you knee is doing much better. Let's hope that's the last of that 60 stuff lol.
