I'm on the mend from my surgery.  Outpatient PT now twice a week.  I plan on going back to work next week.  I didn't get any hand sewing done during recovery.  I napped a lot and iced the knee.  The medications made me sleepy.  I'm starting to walk without my cane and feeling much more like myself.

I had a wonderful Mother's Day with all three of my children and daughter-in-law and grand kids visiting.  Daughter Karen made a large seafood casserole with shrimp, scallops and lobster, buttered cracker crumbs!  Delicious.  We visited a local nursery and I got a beautiful large blue/purple iris for my garden along with a few other plants.  It was really my first "outing" since my surgery.  The black flies were fierce!!!  My son and his wife and kids sent me a beautiful arrangement from Edible Arrangements.  Chocolate covered strawberries, melon, grapes, pineapple.  We all enjoyed it!  A cold spell is upon us right now but the weatherman says it ends on Thursday.  Sure hope so, love the warm, sunny spring weather.

I not sure who created this or who to give credit too, but I just love this applique quilt block!
