Getting my groove back

Well it has been over three weeks now since my surgery and I am feeling stronger every day---working out my quads, hamstrings and glutes---I got a hard workout on Tuesday at physical therapy---found some butt muscles that haven't been used in awhile---OUCH!  The knee still has some swelling but is getting stronger everyday---the idea of being able to run again is looking more of a possibility.  I have come to the realization that I am going to have to do other things as well and not be so dependent on just running.  Looking forward to getting my energy back.  

Yesterday I spent most of my day in the dye pots and it was not as easy as it used to be but I did manage to get some great colors!  I plan to hit the dye pots again today!

I finished my Sailcloth primitive---totally bound with wool and on the floor in the living room.

Here is the article that was in the current ATHA magazine---thanks to Kate for writing this and taking such great pictures.

This is a modified version of one of my Cupboard series patterns that I hooked for the nursery for my future grandson---Baxter---due date is June 17th.  The nursery is decorated in a woodland theme---gray, orange and navy.

I am going to the baby shower in two weeks---going to use the opportunity to get wool to California for the workshop in Cambria---flying on Southwest and a friend is going with me---yeah---baa baa black sheep have you any wool?  Yes sir yes sir---4 bags full!!!!!

Here is a fun geometric hooked by Amy---she brought it finished to class on Wednesday.
Sorry for the shadows on the picture.

Youngest daughter Sarah is having a birthday this weekend!  Happy Birthday Sarah---having a celebratory dinner Saturday night at Tatsu's---yum!
