R & R Stitching Time

A few weeks ago, in an update post about trying to get in some personal sewing time (aka Scraps of Time, Scraps of Fabric), I mentioned I was trying to finish a little Nine Patch quilt as a gift for Christmas.  Happy to report that while I have been doing a lot of sitting, recovering from surgery, it is indeed pieced, quilted and bound!  
My friend Ronda did such a great job quilting this little piece (12 x 15 inches) and I know my step-mom will love it.

I'm two weeks past my second hip replacement surgery and about to go full into PT which is so important and not fun at all!  Oh well....such is life!  

Christmas prep is in full swing and we're checking our cookie baking list twice.  We have less than 2 weeks to go!  AAHHH!!!

Do you remember a post of a few months ago of me saying that there has been a disturbance in the force?

Watch my next post for an explanation!  


  1. That is such a sweet little 9-patch. The quilting looks great!
    Oh, physical therapy is such fun, isn't it? But you are right, so necessary! Hope your recovery is going well.
    Now you have me curious as to what this "disturbance" could be. : )

  2. Your Christmas nine patch is adorable! And the quilting is just delightful. I love it. PT makes us get better, I'm glad your surgery is done and you will soon be moving again.

  3. Love your little quilt! Wishing you all the best in your recovery!

  4. GLad to hear all went well, even though it does mean a little PT - argh! Love the little quilt. I'm curious about the "disturbance" in the Force. Take care.

  5. Your mother-in-law will be so happy with this sweet little quilt, and the quilting is fabulous. Hope this is the last hip replacement for you and that the PT gets you up and going. With so much happening at this time of year, you probably can't wait to be up and moving around. Take it easy though, and don't overdo it.

  6. A lovely little quilt. Wishing you a good recovery and a lovely Christmas!

  7. Pam, when you think you simply cannot do one more repeat of those PT exercises, just think to yourself, "Some day that skinny little physical therapist is going to be in here going through the same thing."
    Love your little Nine Patch! Each of us has something that gets us through those joint replacements. I tatted 6 yards of edging while recovering from having my knee replaced. Wishing you all the best!

  8. The little 9-patch quilt is darling and the quilting looks superb! Your MIL will love it! Looking forward to that new Cheddar line!
