This is what immobility will do to a person!!!!!

Ok - So I have finally been given the ok to try to start walking since my knee surgery.
I have been trying to do a little bit every day but it has been difficult & I am still not able to do as much as I would like.
So instead of walking at the beach I just sat in my car ...
And although the scenery is lovely -
just sitting in your car is not as entertaining as walking
UNTIL YOU DO THIS .....
French fries on the sunroof
I laughed until I hurt !!!!
I must say my husband is a genius for coming up with this one
BEST DATE EVER !!!!!!

And I have been working on another little bird:

I am hoping to finish this one tonight !!!
Have a great weekend

I made it into a zipper pouch to hold some thread and small scissors:
 

I am so pleased with how it turned out.
I hope you like it

Happy Stitching
