Walking on Sunshine

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

Your marquoir mystery is looking great! I've been downloading the charts, but haven't started it. The sheer size of it is completely daunting to me. LOL

Woo hoo! You're off the crutches. I hope your Franken-foot continues to become less Franken.

I'm impressed with the progress on your marquoir. I'm too chicken to take on that big of a project, particularly on such a high count fabric.

Congratulations on getting your legs back!
