Finally got it done...

I'll pay for it tonight and tomorrow but I finally got this big thing quilted. My right hip and thigh is throbbing right now. I've been quilting on this thing about all day, too much time on my feet. I knew better but I really wanted to get this thing done. It measures 96x106 so it is really big and heavy since it is flannel, but it will sure feel good to snuggle under it after I get the binding on. I probably will not work on that for a while. I have too much other stuff to do first.
I really need to sit down and plan out my time for December. I have so much to do and there are not enough days in the month to get it all done. I have several Christmas gifts to make and part of them are quilts that are being bought from me for others and some that are gifts that I am giving. Also I have doctor appointments and so does mom. And I will also be helping do things for mom. I feel like I am in a panic trying to get it all done.

Speaking of mom.....she seems to be doing a little better now. The pain is not as bad as it was, she seems to be tolerating it a little better now. But the bad thing is...she is starting to feel like getting off the couch a little now and wants to try to do everything but she can't. She is starting to get nervous because of it. So I will also be spending the next several weeks trying to occupy her! :) I told her that we would go driving or something to get her out of the house or maybe finish her Christmas shopping if she feels like it.

I guess that I am done sewing for today. There is so much that I need to get done but just done feel like it after quilting that big thing. I think I will go take me a good hot bath and soak in the tub for a while. That will probably feel good on my leg anyway.

That turned out really pretty!! I understand your panic..not recovering from a surgery but I am spending so much time in the library this December that I am really fretting how I will get anything done!! My kids are older so the shopping is easier but it still takes time! Sigh!

Hooray for quilting, but don't overdo it!! I think that some shopping for your mom would be good to get her out of the house and maybe wear her out a little. lol

Have fun!

Your quilt is very nice. I think this time of year, we are under pressure to get things done for Christmas. With the economy the way it is, it saves a lot by giving hand crafted items and they are very much appreciated. Just take your time and do what you can - people are very understanding.

Love the quilting on your big quilt! Your so good at the quilting girly!

I wish your Mom could talk to my DH..he too was so worried about his rotator cuff surgery ... his recovery, his future use of his arm... tell her better days are coming... DH has 100% use :O) and it does not bother him at all... its just a slow and yes somewhat painful recovery ... I wish your Mom the best recovery 100% recovery and use of her arm!
