Last Saturday was the opening of my exhibit in downtown Frederick. It went well. I met a few people and many of the people I invited came to see it. The quilt in the picture was the one that got most of the attention. It is probably my favorite quilt at the moment. It is a few years old now.

One of the reasons I moved here was because I need surgery on my hips and my family is here to take care of me while I recover. The doctors haven't wanted to do surgery because I am too young. So they recommended physical therapy. I have been doing physical therapy for three months and the problem hasn't improved and may be getting worst. The hips do not hurt but the hip joint gives out and I just fall. I fall a lot. It's a miracle that I haven't broke something by now. Something like my head.

On Christmas day I fell. My head hit the wall and I broke the wall with my head. Last week I fell down the stairs. The incredible thing is that I didn't get a bruise. Not even when I broke the wall with my head I got a bump. I have crappy joints but I have strong bones, I guess. Also the walls here are no good and that is a good thing.

By the way, two inches to the left is the wall stud.

So yesterday I went to see the doctor (again). I told him that I was going to keep doing the exercises from physical therapy but if by summer the problem hasn't been fixed, I want the surgery. He finally agreed with me.

Falling on the stairs frightens me...don't do that anymore.

The quilt is great. I hope you don't stop creating them. This is just the very start of what can be an incredible journey of creative work.

We still love you,

Yesterday I took my first painting class and the paintings turned out good! I'll be posting them here when I get pictures.
