Back from surgery and update

Well, I was discharged from the hospital a week ago today. Everything went pretty well. I had to stay in an extra day because I was pretty sick from the anesthesia. I think I slept about 20 hrs out of 24 hours post op. I just was having a hard time staing awake, then when I did wake up, I was very nauseous.
Of course, the day I was discharged was my birthday. Look at these gorgeous flowers DH gave me. There were a lot of lily buds in the arrangement, and every day for about 3 or 4 days a new lily would open up. It was just gorgeous.
This is one of my birthday presents from DH also. The main present is a begininng quilting class that starts the beginning of Sept for 4 weeks on Tuesdays. I've always wanted to learn how to quilt. This isn't the pattern I'll be making in the class, but I think it will be the second one. I got this table runner kit from the Fat Quarter Shop online. They have sooo many wonderful fabrics and quilt kits. Last but not least are my stitching updates. The big news........I finished the JCS magazine piece last night at 3 a.m. It was becoming a vendetta. I NEEDED to finish that piece. I think it turned out pretty well. It's not the kind of piece I would ever stitch for myself, but it turned out nice. The $$$ will be nice from it too. Now I can start stitching on what I want to stitch on.
This first picture is from LHN Neighborhood piece. I'm in the SAL on http://lhneighborhood.blogspot.com/ that Nicole started. It's not much of a start, but at least it's a start.

Here is my little update on Lo, How a Rose. I took this to the hospital with me, but think I only stitched a couple of letters.
This is CHS A Quaker Study. I stitched on this a little one day last week when I needed a break from the JCS piece.
Well, I guess that's it. I've signed up for a PIF with Deb, so I'm going to do another post about that though.

Have a great weekend.

PS: I forgot to post a little sidenote: Today is my grandpa's 90th birthday. He doesn't get on the computer or anything, but I just think it's impressive that he turned 90. He's still pretty healthy as a horse. Happy Birthday, Grandpa!!!!

Here's to a smooth recovery. I found when I had surgery the anesthesia stuck with me for almost a week! Lots of naps I tell you!

Your projects are looking great!

I am so glad surgery went well and you're on the road to recovery!
And a quilting class would be something I'd enjoy too! Good Luck with it!

Glad your recovering from your surgery - hope you are feeling much better by now. I had a hard time shaking the anestheisa the last time I had surgery too. I think I am super sensitive to it!I went to the grocery store about 5 days out and had to stop and sit for a minute (hubby was with me - I wasn't driving) I had quite a 'buzz' for a minute or two!
Happy belated birthday to you. We have a new quilt shop here in town and I popped in last week to check it out. She is going to have classes and I left my name and number so she can call me when she gets the schedule set. Something I've always wanted to do but could never find classes that worked in my schedule or that I didn't have to drive 30+ miles. I'm looking forward to it!
Thanks for stopping by my blog.

I really love that pattern! The Mary Engelbreit charm squares are so cute! I have two of them and didn't have a project for them yet, so maybe I'll have to order this pattern!
Thanks for sharing it!
