Update on my foot surgery:
I was able to get out in a wheelchair to see the DR. Saturday. He thought it all looked good and reinforced again how I am to keep it up and only put weight on it to make it to ...ummmm....the commode!! LOL
I thank God  for having the best husband in the world helping me. Mike too has just been a blessing to have with us while this foot recovers!

My very first post!

Well...It took for me to be" bedridden" after having surgery 7/14/10 to have the time to work on a blog! I have to stay off my left foot for the next 21 days. I was prepared to "walk" on the cast after surgery but to my surprise, here I lay LOL
My 14 year old  grandson Mike is here in bed next to me handsewing "a toe quilt" for my cast to cover my exposed little piggys! Mike is one of those kids who was proud he had home economics, even  recieved a 99 for his grade!
He's here to be my "Gofer" in Mike go for this and Mike go for that. Most teenage boys wouldn't want to be spending 2 weeks taking care of Meme...I'm am so grateful for him!!
My sister Rosalie had spent 5 weeks helping me here in Connecticut getting together my new website Vintage Gatherings. She's back in Florida and still working almost everyday adding items to the site.
It's been so tedious putting up several hundred patterns just from my  "Patterns From the Past"
Thanks Sis!!
