Slowly....

I'm way behind!!!!
There's always something else to do.
On 2 october, I had surgery on my both knees.
While I was resting, I could choose the fabrics for
the applications. I prepared everything because
on the 13th I had surgery for a gastric bypass.
I did a part of the applications in hospital
before my surgery and the rest at home
while I was resting.


This is the result!!!
I'm slowly getting there.

Have a nice day,
Martine

Life does get in the way sometimes. Your panel looks lovely and I'm sure your quilt will too, whenever it is done.

Oh dear - you have had a few challenges. Your health is important and you need to look after yourself. You centre block looks lovely and I know you will do what you can when you can.
All the best with your recoveries.
