A One-Handed Quilter and a 21st Wedding Anniversary

Our thoughts and prayers are with the hurricane and flood victims in our state.  We are grateful that the hurricane did not hit us in La Vernia but it came close.  It makes me so sad to see the after effects of our beloved coastline and all of those suffering.  We had recently made Xmas and Thanksgiving plans for Fulton Beach but that will not happen.  So sad.  For some reason all of SA and La Vernia had a run on Gas yesterday and now there is none available in La Vernia.  People heard that the largest Refinery would be shut down 2 weeks and that started panic, OR people were trying to get home, or whatever.  Reminded me of the 1970’s and the Oil Embargo under illustrious Jimmy Carter years!  that was a big mess!

This will be a SHORT Post because I do not like to play hunt and peck on a keyboard.  The 2nd Carpal Tunnel Surgery on the left hand was yesterday and I am having an easier time with it than the right hand in June.  I am so far in the hole with my quilting I think I will never catch up!  We have been through the Doctor/Surgery/Heart Procedures Mill since May and still have eye appointments, follow-up appointments, stitches removal and Podiatrist.  At least there are no more surgeries!  We will be the healthiest 72/73 year old’s in Texas and our Doctors are making $$$ hand over fists (an OLD saying).

Here’s hoping I will be back on the 13th with both hands flying across the keyboard (no quilting done) but I can type with both hands!.  I did get the last two blocks traced on the background fabric for Nesting and the pieces are ready to press on the fabric.  But nothing else accomplished.  I will be looking at books on paper piecing and watch some of my Craftsy Classes.  I did not have the time to do that the last two months.  I want to finally master PP!  We will see if that happens!

Today is our 21st Wedding Anniversary what a way to celebrate!!!  Clay and I are blessed in so many ways that we can celebrate next month when all health issues are GONE and we can go have some fun somewhere!

Have a safe Labor Day until I become a 2 handed quilter again!!

  2. Happy Anniversary! Enjoy your day and hope you have a nice dinner out planned. Try not to worry about the not being able to quilt – fabric is very patient and will wait until you are able. Until then, make sure to go in and pet the fabric a bit. Maybe read some quilt related stories – There are quite a few mystery and good books weaved around quilts. Hugs and so glad you were not impacted (other then the run on gas) from the hurricane.

  4. I was surprised to see a post so soon after surgery. Happy Anniversary. I am glad you did not have storm problems in your area of Texas. And yes, I remember those gasoline problems. I remember being in Colorado on vacation and having to search for a gas station that had some to sell.

  6. Happy Anniversary! So glad your recovery is going well. We had the same issue with gas during Superstorm Sandy. I had to wait over an hour when there was a delivery as I had to make a trip to Boston for our daughter. I was happy to find that the gas problem was limited to just our area. I hope things return to some semblance of normal in the near future.
