CATCH UP


Finished baby blanket for friend.

I am up and walking 2 miles a day! My foot on the bottom remains "asleep", hopefully this will go away as the swelling at the surgical site subsides. But overall am feeling really good. My time off has been spent knitting and sewing. Mainly finishing up UFO's and I did start one Bonnie Blue quilt that I believe will be done over Sister's Weekend in March. I have also been doing allot of cooking!! Caitlin you would be so proud of me!

Caitlin has been traveling in western China and the phone /text call came that she said may happen. She texted her sister to say from some remote high altitude place that her bank card was not working and that she needed money, to please contact Dad to fix the problem so she could get on a bus/train to get back to Chinese civilization. When Erin called me to tell me of the text I asked her if she heard a yak in the back ground mooing.
Erin: "What?"
I replied that before Caitlin left on her trip she sent an email informing us if we received a phone call and their was a yak mooing in the background that, that would be her and most likely out of money. I laughed at the time but did say to Eric to expect the phone call. I knew I should of placed a bet on the odds that we would be hearing a mooing yak! Opportunity lost!
All in all Caitlin has returned to ChungDu in good health and excited to start sharing pictures of her amazing adventure, which I will share here in the near future.

I am also taking a quilting class with Kelly Gallagher-Abbott called Funky Checkers. I have not taken a quilt piecing class in ages. This one is all about "freedom piecing". Something faster, freer and still using my favorite scrap quilting style......I am all in! Added bonus Tara is cooking!
We will be quilting and eating at City Park Inn .


Eric's new toy truck. It has individual heated seats which I love!!
