A Tired Old Dog learns a New Trick

Posted by Virginia "Ginnie" Leiner on January 19, 2018 at 9:00pm 4 Comments

In October 2017, they determined the right artificial knee was infected and took it out, replacing it with a spacer for 5 weeks.  Turns out they were wrong, it was not infected (good news for me) but the…

She asked me to bring my latest project so I brought in Ruby's Christmas quilt.  The top is finished and I think I will wait until I have Sylvia's done as well before I pin and quilt them both.  Maybe…
