Prepping for surgery

Well, though the MRI was inconclusive, there appears to be a small tear in my knee and I am having surgery in a few weeks. So I am prepping lots of appliqué for some post op stitching. Here is how "Birdsong" is looking so far. A few blocks are sewn and the rest are glued up ready for stitching. I am hoping to get all of these prepped before May 17. It is a relatively simple outpatient procedure and hopefully recovery will only be a few weeks but it will good to be prepared!

Hope all goes well with your surgery and during recuperation! Looks like you will be busy stitching.

I found the magazine with your son's quilt and your quilting. You must be so proud!

Your surgery will most certain go well if you have all that handwork prepped! (If you had nothing to sew you'd be immobilized for weeks) Hope it all goes really smoothly! Your birds are looking great!

I hope your surgery goes well. It's times like that I think we're lucky that quilting is our hobby and not basketball :) . Those beautiful birds will be good company as you recuperate.

Sorry about the knee news...but a bit of enforced rest and stitching may be just what you need at present! The appliqué is just stunning!

Sorry to hear that you have to have surgery. But it seems you are well prepared so you won't get bored afterwards. Take your time and look after yourself while recuperating.
Oh by the way; your bird quilt is going to be another stunner. Is it for you new house?

The blocks are looking wonderful. All the best with the knee. It will take your mind off it if you have something fun to do :)

Wishing you a speedy recovery and happy stitching. I noticed that you have different backgrounds for your blocks. How do you go about planning this. Do you put the background blocks on your design wall and then decide what goes where?? Or is it serendipitous?? I've always wanted to use different backgrounds, but was not sure how to tackle it.
