Hurrah, I've been counting down the weeks until I get my right knee back to normal use ... which means no more up/down steps one-at-a-time, and the return of actual stitching content.
Funnily enough, the first weekend will include delivery of a new-to-me vintage treadle sewing machine. It's going into the storage room - which has no electricity - and I'll be able to do some stitching down there in a beautifully restored machine. The treadle table is a different vintage to the machine head, a delicious Singer 201k.
Since Friday I've been counting Big Sleeps until I remove the knee support and can sit on a bus, cinema or theatre seat. -happy dance- I've got an appointment with a physio on Friday after work, if you hear screams of pain (or more likely maniacal laughter) from Sydney CBD it's likely to be me. There are a couple of owwie spots that may produce it.
It will have been 10 weeks, and I'll celebrate it being over by also joining the Pattern Review afternoon tea in Parramatta.
