I don't know if I will feel like stitching after surgery, I didn't feel like stitching for weeks after my surgery two years ago. Just in case I do feel well enough to pick up a needle, I will be ready. I'm bringing some fabric squares and hexagon templates so I can baste a few more Japanese fabric hexies.
I also found this piece of 12x12 inch pewter 20 count Lugana. I started a simple ornament that I can continue with if I feel like it.
Both projects take little concentration and are easy to stitch. I hope I feel like working on one or both of them while I am in the hospital.
