In the blink of an eye
Oh my goodness, where do I begin? The last week or is it last two weeks have just flown by and I know I’ve been busy but really someone has been stealing my time so I guess I’ll just work through the time and show you the results.
Since my last post, the one about the bag that I made, I received an order for a ready made one, so, that order taken and the job done. This time I did it in a soft sage green with accents from a fabric with a slight pattern similar to a vintage style.
Then… I got the e-mail to say that our own Miss Deb and her man definitely were coming to stay over for a weekend. This was great news as so often we have had false starts with illness, earthquake and family getting in the way of our get together. Once through the door Deb gave me a great tray, just look at this it’s fun and practical and yeah those of us that are well endowed are celebrated . I just love it, thanks Deb.
Over the last few months a few of us that are members of the ‘Tis The Season’ SAL combined under the guidance of ‘Chookyblue’ to make Deb her own version of the quilt. Due to recent events Deb wasn’t up to making her own and it was a privilege to be part of this.
My job was to join the blocks and then do the finishing bits. The weekend just past, gave me the chance to hand over our combined efforts to our lovely houseguest.
Deb and her DH Bill were delightful and at one stage I remember thinking how ‘easy’ we all were with one another and having someone else to stitch with was just great. Sadly our weekend was over just far too quickly and Miss Deb and Bill made their way back to Christchurch where they were greeted with yet another decent sized earthquake the following day – yuk!!!
My latest bit of news is that at long last I am out of the ‘delightful’ moonboot. The man that did the surgery is very pleased with his handiwork and very quickly wanted me to see just how good the results were on x-ray. Now I need to learn how to walk properly as it has been six years since the accident and three years since the first surgery. So, with the help of one crutch and a bit of physiotherapy I wont be running any marathons but I’ll be doing my best to be able to take the credit cards shopping *wink*.
Sorry this has been such a long post, you know it was probably longer than my week – but hey ho.
Have a great week, hugs
