Well each day seems that my sprained foot is a little better. But still, I am very limited in what I can do. Standing too long, or even not elevating my foot brings on a little bit of swelling.
So I found the knitting needles and watched a youtube instructional. Amazingly, I remembered how to do the basic stitches.
I've only been knitting one row and then purling the next. Just taking the time to practice the stitches. There are several mistakes along the way, but at least it has given me something to do while I wait on the mend.
I've also taken time to do a little blog surfing. It is certainly amazing how many talented and creative people are out there. Like Trends and Traditions (be sure to check out Heather's giveaway!) When I started this blog, my intention was to share my quilting adventure. I don't have an etsy shop, I don't do ebay, and I also don't advertise to monetize. I would really like to keep the Happy Cottage Quilter a blog for my creative endeavors. So with all this time that I have had on the computer, I thought I would try adding another blog for the treasure/thrifting posts. You are all invited to surf on over to Just a Little Southern Hospitality, and pay me a visit over there :-) Please be sure to leave a comment, so I know you stopped by. If I could, I would offer you a tall glass of sweet Iced Tea and a seat on the swing. We could chat for a while and enjoy a lovely sunset.
Have a wonderful weekend! Ya'll come back, hear ;-)
