Stuff and Nonsense

I am feeling much better but I still have a ways to go before I am 100%. I am thrilled that I am now able to show photos of my two latest designs which will be released at the Nashville Market and they can be seen at Lady K Needlearts I am very pleased with how they turned out. Please let me know what you think of them.

I have been doing quite a lot of reading for the last few weeks but I am now itching to start something new. I have a lot that I need to do but nothing that I am working on is appealing to me right now. So I am off to look through my stash and find a new start--just what I need! I know I am the only person alive who feels this way! lol I will let you know what I find.

It is so cold outside that my bones are aching. I think I will go cuddle up under my blankie with a mug of hot cocoa and stitch for a while. Take care dear friends.

Until next time...

I am sorry I was gone for so long. But things got complicated. I had another episode with my knee but this time it didn't get better. I went to the orthopedist on Friday the 6th and he injected both of knees with cortisone to see if that would help before scheduling the knee replacement surgery. I hurt really badly all day afterwards but kept thinking it would get better. Saturday morning when I tried to get up my knee locked up again and in spite of everything we did I couldn't move my leg at all. Finally Saturday afternoon I was in such agony that my son called 911 and the EMS came and took me to the hospital. After several hours, a lot of xrays, tests, ultrasound, etc., I was admitted to the hospital. To make a long story shorter I was treated and medicated, physical therapy-ed and tested until I could manage to move my leg again. I finally got to come home on Saturday the 14th with more PT scheduled through home health. It took me another week before I could walk with the help of a walker but I got there. I am just now getting to where I can sit at the computer for more than two minutes so I thought I would pop in and let all of you know what has been going on.

On the stitching front I haven't done a whole lot but I have done a bit. Between the lying position and the meds I haven't really been able to do much. Hopefully that will change soon. I am beginning to miss it a lot. I have been catching up on some of my reading however!

At the moment I am working as hard as I can to get my designs ready for the Nashville show. I wasn't able to get all of them finished unfortunately but I will have two of them ready. You can check them out on the Lady K Needlearts blog. I should have an update there in a day or so.

Well, I am getting a bit tired so off I must go.

Until next time....
