Before I had the accident, I took photos of a few quilts I was working on, but because of the extension I didn’t find the time to post them. Speaking of the extension, it is finished (imagine me in bed in hospital co-ordinating tradesmen on my mobile and you have an accurate picture). I will post pictures of that soon.
Pictured is a quilt made by Elaine, which I think is really sweet.
I did small loops as the background fill, and quilted some large daisies in the border.
Elaine does exquisite appliqué and embroidery, and I have posted two of her quilts on my blog in the past.
Click here to see what I consider one of her best appliqué quilts where I used curved cross hatching to create a circular effect.

I have an appointment on Friday for more x-rays of my ankle. If all is well, the cast comes off, and then I will be in a boot for six weeks.
I have adapted well to quilting sitting down and have new routines for loading and unloading the quilts. I am still slower, but improving. I have mastered the crutches, but it really is a skill that I would have been quite happy to never have had to learn.
