So as some of you know I recently (last thursday) underwent an ankle replacement surgery in Toronto at St Michael's Hospital. I am the fortunate recipient of the "Cadence Total Ankle System" Designed and Patented by Dr. T Daniels. The ankle is my right one so sewing on a sewing machine is out of the question.
I have to share a funny story about the hospital first before I ask a question.
My pre-op nurse expressed an interest in quilting when she saw my daughter in the waiting area working on her English Paper Piecing and then she wanted to see my website. So right there while talking with me she had a look at my website and I was surprised at the number of nurses who are very interested in quilting and most of them fairly young (25-35ish). They were actually sharing pictures from their phones and talking about how quilting is re-emerging as an interest these days! I have to say I was so thrilled to see this. We created such a group in pre-op that we had some stern doctors (some of who think they are more special than others) kind of try and break it up. LOL
Now I am recovering and "planning" to crochet, read, hand embroider and english paper piece. I also "plan" to post some pics of what I am working on soon!
My question to my readers is: Any other suggestions of what to do when you cannot put your foot down (must be elevated) and/or use your right foot? Your suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I need to keep my creative blood cells flowing!!
Have a great Wednesday! ❤️
