I had the total knee replacement two weeks ago today. After 3 days in the hospital and 8 days in a rehabilitation hospital, I arrived home last Friday to my nest. Home never looked so good!!!
I have had my wings clipped for a month. I can walk around the house but cannot leave the house! So my world is small but I am working each day towards expansion. My bend is currently 90 degrees with ultimate goal of 120 within two weeks. My other new goal is to drive myself to lunch on my birthday in early December! We all know how fast time passes. Having goals helps break the monotony of new day, same story.
Meanwhile I am surrounded by beautiful quilts! When I first began to quilt I made lots of work inspired by traditional patterns of wild batiks and my own hand-dyed fabrics. Three grace the walls and one bed. Another has migrated from another room to be folded 8 fold to make a small stack on which to elevate my foot. All these glorious colors inspire my recovery!

So glad the recovery is going well, Carol. You’ll be back in action in no time. Love the quilt in your post! Hugs.
