Excuses, excuses


Well, since my last post (I’m sorry it has taken so long) I have done the long car ride over the ‘hills’ and had my date with the surgeon. 

001The very nice man took out the009 old ‘hardware’ and put in some new bits plus a little bone graft from me.  Tomorrow we repeat the trip and get a new, proper cast put on and let the healing begin.  Thank you all for the lovely e-mails and cards – I am truly blessed with all my fab on-line friends.


Now while being held up in hospital I had a couple of visitors that you all know, and I’m sorry I just didn’t think to take photo’s.  Our own Miss Deb and Darlene called in to lift my spirits – and that they surely did. Thanks girls and to Deb, that coffee was THE best, thanks hun.007

Darlene and I had been flicking e-mails back to each other about purchasing a collection of fat quarters that Melanie (another beautiful blogger) had drawn our attention to– all of them being 004Japanese Taupe's.  Well after a little elbow twisting on both sides Darlene put in the order, the precious box arrived in just a few days – amazing!!  So, while I was laying there in all my post op glory dahlin’ Miss Darlene delivered the goodies – the best medicine I’m sure.  Included in the box were some purse closures that we both quite006 fancied too.  Now I just have to pluck up the courage to cut into these precious fabric morsels.

Well that’s it for now.  My post op fuzziness is slowly disappearing so hopefully I’ll be back into some real stitching soon.

Have a wonderful week everyone

  1. Brilliant! I'm sure fabric should be labeled "for medicinal purposes" like brandy. Great for inspiration and getting well soon so you can craft again.

    Hope the ankle is recovering well.

  2. Thanks for your email. So glad you are home and less fuzzy. Those pins look big enough to knit with.
    I can't think of better medicine than real fresh coffee, lovely new fabric and quilty visitors.
    ( you'll be sick of the site of that road though -all for good cause )

  3. A true quilter, this girl can still organise purchasing of fabric from her hospital bed. lol
    Glad to hear you're on the mend, all the best for the next stage of your journey.

  4. Hope all goes well this week Miche'le....friends and fabric are the perfect pick me up...

  5. Best wishes for a speedy recovery from your op - then you can soon go out dancing with your darling!

  6. Wishing a quick recovery so you have time to play in the fabric..
    Lovely pieces and your friend knows what things will brighten your day.
    With best wishes,

  7. you just rest up and get that leg/ankle all better ya hear!!

  8. Hugs and healing thoughts!

  9. What pretty fabrics, just the thing to help with recovery.
