I'm pleased to announce that the doctor has taken me off crutches! Even though I was too sick to work today, there was no way I was going to miss that appointment. I still have to wear the orthopaedic shoe because the foot won't fit into a sneaker yet, or so they say. The horrible man in the scrubs bent my toe in a painful way and told me I had to torture myself like that twice a day. Anyway, I will spare you the sight of Franken-foot. It's too gruesome.
Instead, I share with you photos of the marquoir. Taken during the day, just after noon. Unfortunately, it was a dark and stormy night. This piece is giant. The 40-count fabric is about a yard wide and over a yard long. I have stitched 1/16th of the pattern
