Surgery Update and Coloring I've Done

Hi Everybody,

It's been a little while since I've posted.  I wanted to update you.... I had knee replacement surgery on 4/9 and feel like I've made a lot of progress since.  I can get up and down with no help and use a walker but I'm starting to actually walk with it taking normal steps, not limping, so soon I'll progress to a cane.  

I believe within a week I should be back to making cards again.  It's getting easier to be able to sit because my knee is now bending a little better.  I'm not going to lie, physical therapy HURTS.  I had to start going two days after surgery but without it I wouldn't be able to bend and straighten my leg and walk normally so it's just something I'll have to deal with.  

In the meantime, I've started coloring again and wanted to share my completed April Pencil Class at Kit and Clowder using Prismacolor Pencils.  How cute is this image??  

I finished the character from the March Pencil Class but didn't get a chance to draw in the sand, water and sky before surgery so I'll work on that too.  These classes are great because they teach you how to draw in detail to your stamps and to draw in scenes.  

I just got my first Daniel Smith Split of Watercolor Paints and have since ordered a second one so I'm excited about using this new medium to paint.  

I can't wait to start making cards again!  Thank you so much for your support!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Sounds like you're making great progress! And hey - nothing wrong with a little (or a lot) of guilt-free coloring time!
