Zero Turn Training and Mending (quilts)

My husband is quite excited that I am getting some practice in this "zero turn" procedure. I think he is ready for me to share the grass cutting chores in Wetcreek, and this wheelchair driving is getting me right into the groove. 

If all goes well, we will go outside this afternoon in the warmish Dutch sunshine to try out my newly acquired skills. I just need to find a pair of gloves to protect my hands from blisters and, of course, sharp and tight corners.

Don't need anymore bruises. My left leg has a lifetime supply!

And I have been mending this "found" vintage quilt while I am mending.

What a fun quilt project to "fix". You go girl with that wheelchair. I can just see you doing wheelies! xo Diana

That cat quilt is beautiful, and finally you have time to mend it. It was a good afternoon to train with your wheelchair, enjoying the sun.
Make the best of it!

Good luck with all your training.
My sister is a quilter who "rescues" quilt tops from charity shops and quilts them. She says someone's grandma in heaven is saying "Look, Ethel! My quilt is being finished!"
And, good for you, too.
