Today's the Big Day

   Well, a lot has happened since my last post.  My Achilles Tendon is not improving, so surgery is set for today.  I am not supposed to put any weight on my foot for several weeks, and after 6 weeks have passed I should be able to wear shoes again.  Yeah!!!  No more boot.

   Stitching progress.  I finished Noah's Sub, it looks very nice.  I am almost done on "The Pledge of Allegiance."  I only have the border to stitch which is a pattern of red, white and blue Syrian Cross or Algerian Eyelet stitches.  Since I will be home for a time recovering, the family set up a frame that works around a wheel chair so I can watch movies and stitch on the Sistine Chapel piece I'm working on. 

   Stamping, Scrap Booking and Cricut.  With some extra time off before the surgery, I was able to rearrange my craft area.  Things I use often were lowered and all the cabinets and cupboards were reorganized and labeled.  This will allow me to get to stuff easier.  My plan is to work on making lots of blank cards for future use.  Getting some layouts done and just using the time to try some new techniques or card styles.

     Since I can't walk or drive I will be housebound, and I'm planning on stitching and crafting as much as I can. 

   My family has been a big help in getting things ready, we know this will be a very interesting recover process.  I have faith and I am assured all will go well.

Be Well.

    That's the happenings so far.
