She recognized me before I did her, walking toward me in the pet supply aisle in Wal-mart.
She giggled as she straightened her back and shoulders, “Hi, Dr. Bates.”
Smiling, I returned her hello.
I am a plastic surgeon in Little Rock, AR. I used to "suture for a living", I continue "to live to sew". These days most of my sewing is piecing quilts. I love the patterns and interplay of the fabric color. I would like to explore writing about medical/surgical topics as well as sewing/quilting topics. I will do my best to make sure both are represented accurately as I share with both colleagues and the general public.
