....as in, I am no longer using my crutches, at least around the house. It feels strange after 3 months (almost to the day) to be able to walk around unaided, even though I have a big limp. I will still need a week or two of physio to help get my leg muscles working properly.
Because I haven't done any art work this week due to day surgery, recovering and then working, here are photos of the black and white quilt I made my daughter's boyfriend Erlo late last year. It's fully reversible, and made block by block, then joined together with the sashing. One side features "rivers" of freehand cut wedges; the other side is 2 plain blocks followed by an appliqued cow (all drawn by moi) either standing, running or jumping, and all slightly different. Erlo is very keen on cows, so I wanted to make him something completely original.
