August has certainly been an eventful month for me! Major surgery, an Earthquake and Hurricane Irene have certainly kept me pre-occupied. I would like to thank all of my blog friends for their well wishes!
With limited use of my left arm, I've still been able to work on some small stitchery projects. Here is my Calendar Girls quilt block for August. Tomorrow is my post-operative Dr's appt. I'm hoping to get the "thumbs up" for getting back to normal activities. I've really MISSED my sewing machine!
Sending Prayers & Well Wishes to all those still effected by the Hurricane!
July began the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. The very first battle took place in Manassas,Va. In Old Town Manassas there are commemorative flags hanging on every lamp post as far as the eye can see. It's a lovely place to walk around. There are lots of wonderful old buildings that house Shops and Restaurants with outside dining near the old historic train station.
Last week we took our 6 month old grandson for his first visit. He was fascinated by all the people and stayed up WAY past his bedtime.
I will be taking a bit of a break from blogging during August for health reasons. I'm going into the hospital for surgery in a few days. Not sure how long I'll be off line yet - hopefully just a week. It will probably be several weeks before I'm sewing again - but during my recovery I'll have plenty of time to catch up on everyone's blog chatter and wonderful accomplishments!
My name is Doreen aka Aunt Reen.
I've been a passionate quilter for 30+ years.
I love all aspects of quilting and find great joy in teaching and in learning from other Quilters. I am especially fond of sewing small scale quilt blocks and also enjoy applique'.
