This gave me a lift!


  I was reading through a few blogs this morning and ran across a wonderful surprise when I got to the Greater Columbia Quilt Guild.   This is the group I did a program and class for last fall.  Their monthly show and share is usually overflowing.  Five  members who took my class shared their finishes......such variety and beauty.  
From Greater Columbia Quilt Guild

  For this class I lifted all restrictions, giving them the freedom to express themselves.  I am so glad they took  the opportunity to do this.......rather than duplicating my examples.  By their smiles I think they were happy and satisfied.  Ladies, I am so pleased with your work!

Today was the outpatient evaluation for OT..........this is for the hands mainly.  There is not any change or improvement.  I was only able to identify one of the four objects placed in my hands. So we will work on strength training.....praying for a miracle in the hands and fingers.  I won't dwell on it but you know how much I need those fingers.

OK, enough sobbing.  I am greatly enjoying home and freedom to just be here.  Thank you all for the encouragement and support.  Keep stitching :)

  10. Fingers are an amazing creation. Praying yours will reconnect the neural pathways and work again to create beauty. Keep taking those vitamins.

  11. Good morning Debbie......I was so happy when I saw a post from you in my e-mail today, and pray that soon, it will become a daily occurrence when you are able to sew again. All we can do is to keep praying and hope that the OT and time will wake up all those sleeping nerves. Hugs and prayers!!

  12. Wow you did a great job of teaching that class. Each of them really got it judging by the photo.
    Keep up the PT! It may take a while but you will regain your abilities. You clearly need to be doing some more teaching. :)

  16. I haven't commented before, but I'm thinking of you all the way through your problems. I've had my own troubles at the same time with a fall and a smashed femur - one hip replacement later I'm home again. I certainly don't have your problem, but am still taking time to start sewing again as I can't bend more than 90 degrees, and we all know that hard as we try, we do lean forward when we are sewing. I'm sure you'll be back eventually (just sending some positive thoughts). I also did love the photo, and particularly liked the idea of making blocks from the colour wash - it is lovely, and I think it might be a good way for me to start - one day down the road when I get through the list I already have. Get well soon xxxx

  19. Sorry the feeling hasn't come back yet. I'm still praying. I'll be seeing the neuro doc, about my feet, in less than 2 weeks. Not as bad as you, by any means, but, scary anyways.
