watch those sewing machine needles, ladies!

John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

and pins!
ha! yep... if you step on one, it might break off in your foot so deep and near a bone that you have to have same day foot surgery to get it out!  true story... one that happened to me, just a couple weeks ago!

very painful and quite nauseating even when I still think of it! ewwwwwww

Here is Zach, who helped me the whole day!  the needle happened about 6am ish and surgery didn't happen until 530 pm, Zach is a great son,  helped and stayed with me the whole day, we played words with friends back and forth in the surgery center for over 2 hours waiting for the surgery :)

yes it was my right foot, the one I push the sewing machine pedal with but I did learn to control it quite well with the left foot ;)

slowing down sewing for others a bit and the break has been nice, just working on the home and some quilts for me  :)

my friend Di has enabled me once again doing English paper piecing (yikes!)  started a few! love this line "Little Miss Sunshine"

She also shared a quilt she did and of course,  needing to start another quilt before I have the other 9 finished, I feel compelled to copy hers so now I am compiling fabric for it ;)

This week coming up I have goals of sewing...
- a couple blocks of my Marmalade flower girl quilt
 - do a bit more on the Vintage Picnic Irish chain
 - do a couple farm girl blocks

I will close with a picture of  Ellie Mae. ya know.. I have owned so many dogs in my lifetime and she is the most talkative and most weird dog ever :)

I had to look twice to see if this was really you, LOL. That pin story is scary, do you need 4 weeks recovery time? That seems to be norm. I owe you chats and was just thinking about you this morning.

Ellie Mae is a doll! Wish I could come pat her!
Love, the enabler,

Oh my gosh I am so sorry to hear about your foot. Hope you heal quickly. Ella Mae is a cutie.
