Hamtune Quilters

Just a little update on my knees and the pain I have been having. I saw the Specialist on Monday and was very surprised when he sent me for knee and hip X rays. However it turns out sometimes knee pain can be caused by your hips.. bodies certainly work in strange ways. I'm happy and relieved to say the new knee joint is fine and still stuck in place :-) however the arthritis in my hips and knees although not severe is not helping. The muscles in my knees are swollen and by taking it easy should repair themselves. I go back to see him in six weeks. I will continue to rub Weleda Arnica oil into them, which I am sure is helping bring the swelling down.

Last night I attended the meeting of Hamtune quilters. Susie Corke was the speaker, and the talk was titled "My Quilts".
What a wonderful and varied display of her beautiful work, from her very first quilt to her latest UFO. Most were hand pieced and hand quilted. I forgot to take my camera but managed to find a photo of one of her prize winning quilts. The photo does not do the quilt justice, it was magnificent in real life.

What a week of ups and downs

Sunday started so well as I went to church but then I hit an uneven curb in the church yard. The damage did not look too bad but it ruined ...
