A finish


I finished the quilting on this using my left foot and I am definitely a right-footed person.  I did wait till I could use my right foot when it came to putting the binding on.


Not the greatest picture, but the best I seemed to be able to do.

*************

I cannot tell you how good it feels to be standing on my own two feet.  I honestly didn't know if I ever would.    It is absolutely wonderful to get up out of my chair and just walk into another room, or stand on my own two feet while I brush my teeth...and not have to balance on one foot.

It is wonderful to be able to walk to the car, get in and drive!!! and just park absolutely anywhere, and not have to worry about being on an end spot where I can get in and out without having to worry about bumping into the car next to me.   There are just so many things that we take for granted.

We do take so much for granted in life, the simple act of getting out of a chair for instance. Moving around more must feel so good. Your quilt is beautiful!

the old saying "we don't know what we have until it is gone" is so true. I am so happy for you that you are mobile once more. and yours was for such a long period of time... which ever foot you used to work on the quilt, to me it is really beautiful. looks perfect to me.... I like the colors a lot.

Yes, we take some many usual things for granted, until we can't do them anymore, or at least not for a while. Glad to hear you are doing better.
