Go Green

Now 2 weeks post op hysterectomy . life is a little restrictive for now, unable to drive a car for another 2 and half weeks so have lots of time on my hands .. saving my energy for when my recuperation time ends .. my partner who leaves here at 6 am and arrives home at 7 pm has been very helpful with cleaning along with my daughter and Robins's sister. As I had a few weeks notice was able to prepare some applique on a Christmas Quilt for me to blanket stitch the first few days home , it is now ready to be machine sewn together , backed and then I will hand quilt . Great therapy.

After re reading my Quilting Arts Magazines this week have decided to try the Go Green 5 inch Journals, though I think monthly or fortnightly rather than weekly, already this week have a collection of recylcables and of course lots of bits and pieces in my sewing scrap bins. Spent time this afternoon cutting up 5 inch squares of pelmut vilene in readiness to produce my first Go Green Journal tomorrow .

Next week it's my intention to attempt Aprils Journal , have no idea yet other than I will be painting visoflix and will take it from there..
