Folkart Penny Mat and a 5km walk



I was so pleased ,yesterday i walked 5kms for the first time since i broke my ankle in 3 places 7 mths and 1 day ago,such a milestone for me and boy its amazing how well the body heals,i can still see my ankle with 2 bones sticking out,now to keep my walking up.


Thought it was about i got this project started and finished,it was a kit given to me a few years back.


Love using the big stapler to tack all the pieces down ,one face done.


Hooray its finished i do love working with wool. Its a lovely pattern by Buttermilk Basin called January.


Another gift for the pressie box,now to get some of those stitcheries finished off that i did while recuperating with my ankle.

Hope your day is a good one.
Cheers Shez xx

  3. Woo hoo! So glad you're back to walking again. It's been a long haul hasn't it. I can see that a long arm stapler would be a great addition to the sewing room - all sorts of uses.

  4. Well done on getting back to your daily walk.....now that the weather is cooler it is more appealing to put on a pair of walking shoes and go. Cute snowmen mat.

  10. Glad to know you are much improved! I personally understand how aggravating it is not to be able to walk normally, even across the yard for me sometimes. Tonight is one of those nights! Been quilting all day! ---"Love"

  21. OMGOSH Shez, I am so happy that you are healing well and are so mobile. I know from experience that using that ankle will make it stronger.

    The memes you place at the end of your blog often hit close to home and give me pause for thought. Thank you for this one.
    xx, Carol

  27. yay, well done with the heeling! That sounds great. I was chuffed that 8 months after breaking my shoulder, I was finally able to undo my bra without having to spend 5 minutes wiggling it down!
    Love the snowman matt, so cute! Don't the staples leave holes?
