About Me

I'm a wife, mom, grandmother and great grandmother. I try to be creative - sometimes it works, most times it doesn't. I'm my own worst critic! I'm self taught in a lot of my crafts, but have taken quilting classes and most recently a beginner's rug hooking class. I enjoy both crafts tremendously. I'd like to learn to be a better gardener.

Warm, cold, sunshine, snow...oh, and foot surgery!

Hi everyone!  Just thought I'd pop in to touch base.  Here on the North Coast in Ohio we've been have a roller coaster ride with weather.  It's been snowy, then warm, then rainy, then cold, then more snow...you get the picture.  Yesterday we noticed that robins were all over the place - all over our yard, our neighbor's yard and the yards across the street.  I think that the robins that didn't stay over the winter are back.  Now if I could just see a red-winged blackbird I'd know that spring is one it's way!

On March 14 I had surgery on my foot - a plantar fasciiotomy(sp?).  I'm recovering well.  Finally got to take the ace wrap and gauze of this past Saturday.  My foot was very happy.  Just have a bandaid on the incision.  I get the stitches taken out April 4.  I am able to walk on my foot a little bit with the help of a walker which is a huge improvement from when I had my left foot done.  Then I was non-weight bearing for the full three weeks.  I have pushed on my heel and no pain so it seems the surgery was a success.

I've been working on cross stitch.   It's the Jane Harris sampler.  I don't know what I was thinking when I ordered it.  The size clearly says 20 x 19 but in my mind that menat 8 x 10! LOL!  This thing is huge!  I have the perfect place for it when it's done.

Have a great day!

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. pretty nice blog, following :)

  2. Hi Char, I hope that your foot has healed. I don't know how I missed this post. It must have been on a very busy day. I've been wondering how you are making out now that you a're retired. How's that cross stitch coming along.

    I hope that you have more time to relax and enjoy life.
