a sneak peak at my new kitchen

The colors are off a little in this picture. I'll do better with the next pictures, I promise!

DH is still recovering from surgery. He can get up from chairs and the bed without much trouble. He still has to wear a brace and is supposed to walk. So we've been walking....short walks, but 3 or 4 times a day. He goes back to the doctor May 3rd. He is hoping that he will be able to go back to work on light duty because he is really bored now. But he still has a lot of pain. Guess we'll wait to hear what the doctor has to say.

p.s. I am still looking for my camera cord.

A belated Thank You

Last month I won a book giveaway from Amy's Creative Side. Go to Quilt Fiesta to see pictures from the book. There are beautiful quilts in this book. The first one I am going to make is Salsa Verde. Green is my favorite! I still haven't found my camera cord to link with my computer. It is utter chaos in this house.

short update

I found out that I wouldn't have made a very good nurse. Good thing I didn't go to nursing school! DH is recovering but still very slow and sore. The kitchen is almost finished!! Woo Hoo. I have most of the things put back into the cupboards. But the kitchen sink faucet just came in yesterday. Now I'll need my favorite plumber, my brother, to install it. Why didn't I learn any of that type of stuff when I worked at the plumbing shop for dad. No I just answered phones. Sorry no pics today. I still haven't found my camera cord in all the chaos.

project in the works

I found this charm pack in my stash and sewed them together. Then went looking for a border and foung the one in the pic above. The border is from a different line but it has all the right colors and I liked them together. It will have a green print backing that is the same line as the border. I have started straight line quilting it. It's something bright to look at while I am waiting for some sun shine.

Warning the following is may want to stop reading here.

My DH had major back surgery on the 21st of March. Today is the first day he is feeling a little better. Which is very good for me and his friends. Two of his close friends were coming in every day to help him with what ever he needed. They were angels to me because I have a job out of town. I would put DH pills in envelopes with the time of day on them. Found out that worked well. But he still needed fed and help getting up. I couldn't take time off work because I just started work on March 7 after being off work for 3 months. Now that he is off work I was very fortunate to have found a job. Time to go, more later.
