It's really been a pretty productive year in terms of quilting and other sewing projects. I've focused again on finishing up some UFOs and trying to make most of my fabric purchases have a purpose. I'll be putting together my numbers and figure out how many finishes I had for year, but that will have to wait for the weekend.
On Wednesday morning this week my husband had his disc replacement surgery, and yesterday I brought him home again. They kept him just barely 24 hours in the hospital. The arm numbness has gone away, so I think the surgery will be considered a success. The rest of the healing will take time.
Luckily I work from home so I've been able to go back to work and still check on him periodically. He is pretty worn out, and sleeps quite a bit, especially after taking his pain meds. The neck area is stiff and sore of course. And his throat is very sore which is something the surgeon warned us about. He has some lifting restrictions for 6 weeks, and some "twisting" restrictions for 3 months. And he can't drive until he quits taking the pain meds.
So I'm wrapping up the year with very little sewing, but looking forward to 2017 with excitement.
