Sweet Surprises

Thanks for your kind hopes for my recovery. I haven’t been able to get to the computer as much as I’d like, so if I haven’t replied to you personally, I apologize. Please know that each visitor to my blog and each comment left there is precious to me. I’m continually surprised by the encouragement and support of people I've never even met. Amazing!

Progress is slow, but I’m already walking better than I did before my hospitalization in December. The other day, I was surprised by how far I walked and had my son measure the distance -- 25 yards!

That very same day, a surprise arrived in the mail-- this sweet cupcake quilt. Amy at Mrs. Schmenkman Quilts made it to commemorate her 100th blog post and I was the lucky winner! She used gorgeous fabrics and artfully quilted it with freeform feathers. Those happy springtime colors will keep me smiling throughout the winter months. Thanks Amy!
