Loading another quilt on the frame took just as long too. First, I thought the backing fabric wasn't large enough, so I add a piece to it. However, when I finally got it loaded, I discovered it was the right size to begin with - I just couldn't add correctly! By the end of the day, I did manage to get it to the point where I can start quilting on it. This one is intended to be a gift for my brother-in-law for Christmas...

I remember thinking before the surgery how much I would enjoy being able to rest and relax while I was recovering. However, for someone who is always on the go, I'm finding the enforced downtime to be more difficult than I anticipated. Hopefully this won't last too long and things can get back to normal!
Some members of the family are really enjoying the downtime and having me home all day...

But I trust in your unfailing love. I will rejoice because you have rescued me. I will sing to the Lord because he is good to me.
Psalm 13:5-6 (NLT)
