What's Been Happening!

Well -- the jewelry half of this duo, Cheri, is hard at work on the items we will be presenting at our fall shows that start in September. She has some really interesting new ideas to show you this year. The textile half of the duo, that would be me, has been laid low for awhile. I fell last December 4th on the way to a show in Waco TX. About 2 weeks later the doctors found that I had broken my ankle. We've been working ever since to get the silly thing to heal and it would not! Last Friday my orthopaedic surgeon reconstructed the ligament and removed the broken bone. He assures me that I'll be good as new, but for the next few weeks I'm going to have to take it easy. For now it is no weight bearing and "keep your toes higher than your nose." I'm trying to be good. I'm doing lots of sketching and planning so as soon as he gives the "go" signal I'm ready to spring into action. Thanks for all the good thoughts you have been sending. They are very much appreciated.
