So many of you have sent good wishes, prayers and kind remarks our way. Please forgive me if I do not acknowledge each one personally. The outpouring of caring has been humbling and even surprising. Sometimes it takes events like this to make us realize how connected to people we are.
Sparkle Jane, that remarkable young woman, continues to recover very well. She is napping right now after a morning that included a shower (blessed first shower after surgery) and some crocheting. That was enough to wear her out. While she was in the shower, I changed the sheets on her bed, so she was able to put her clean self in a clean bed and rest. It is amazing to consider that about 50 hours ago she was on a surgery table, and they were working on her heart. We are truly blessed.
While she was in her nearly-five-hour surgery on Thursday, I had to have something to do, so I crocheted a little myself: potholders. It is good to keep the hands busy when under stress.
This morning I decided to get a sewing project started. No, nothing on my to-do list. But, it is one that has been lurking for a while. I’ll share more later, but here is a start.
Thank you again for your support. I’ll keep you posted on Sparkle Jane’s progress (and my sewing progress, too).
PS–Potholder directions are in the TUTORIALS tab above. The pictures are left-handed, but that works for me. 🙂
