A Special Day
next pt placemat warp
May 9 has been a special day for us for a long time. Today marks our 40th anniversary (ruby according to my mother, which is also my birthstone).
It is also the second anniversary of my angioplasty and while the road to health still seems to have some bumps to overcome, I am grateful that I am still here, still weaving. :)
Mizz B will be finished her shawl warp tomorrow at the latest so I'll get her to dress the loom with the next placemat warp once she's done. My ankle is coming along, albeit more slowly than I'd like, and it will be good to get back to some pt weaving on the small loom.
I am hoping that by the time I'm finished weaving this lovely peachy warp that my ankle will be strong enough that I can dress the loom with one of the many painted warps still to be done. While I am using the crutches when I leave the house and on stairs I can mostly get around unsupported. Still not 100% but flexibility is noticably improved after the ultra-sound treatment on Friday. I'm hoping that the surgeon will be proved correct and that 12 weeks after the break/surgery I will be significantly improved. Improved enough that on the trip to the Alberta conference I can actually help Doug, not just sit around feeling useless. :}
Best wishes to everyone on this special day.
