The Luckiest ot the Unlucky

Saturday June 20 was such a good day.  I was in the studio finishing this lovely 90 x 99 shot cotton quilt top.  I vacuumed, rejoicing in how easy this task is with 2 hands.  I even set out the fabrics for the next quilt I want to work on.  I want to finish this quilt top by July so that I can turn the entire month over to purses and masks.  One of each every day.  Piles of fabrics for both are set out.

But then I tripped on uneven sidewalk about a mile away from the house.  Nice ladies called 911.  ER took care of facial lacerations and made sure there were no brain bleeds.  I broke my proximal humerus and see my bone doc tomorrow.

Thankful I didn’t do more damage! But I’m incredibly sore - everything hurts.

I keep thinking of I Robert Burns and how the best-laid plans of mice and men “gang aft a-gley.”

Are you sure you're not Pat Sloan? I had a really strong feeling of deja vu when I read about your accident. Falling is what us older folks fear, at least this one does. Check this out if you haven't seen it ==> https://blog.patsloan.com/
