I know I needed to finish my grand-daughter's quilt last Sunday, and I didn't realise why until I was suddenly admitted to hospital on Tuesday afternoon for emergency Gallbladder surgery.
I had been feeling out of sorts for about 4 days before that and things suddenly went from bad to worse almost overnight.
Things moved very quickly following that!
I spent the last 5 days in hospital feeling very sorry for myself.
Have dragged myself onto the computer to post today. They are telling me it will be all easier from here on but I am just not ready to be a believer yet!
Not one to dwell on bad things I just wanted to share some small things I made whilst in the grip of a moderate amount of pain. I thought it might take my mind off it for a while.....you know what they say about diversion therapy.......had to wait for the GP appointment.
A couple of zippy elephant purses from fabric recently purchased.
A few days before going to hospital Tilda's Studio arrived in the post.This was followed by Tilda's Summer Ideas which was brought to me before surgery, but I didn't really look at the book until I got home!
Yum! more bags to make!
Thought these would be great for my grand-daughter (she loves softies) for her birthday, but might have to make these for Christmas now as time have almost run out.
When I flipped through the first book I loved so many of her things that I placed an order from Sewn and Quilted and this was waiting for me when I arrived home from hospital. Carol from the shop had packaged them so beautifully into 3 different parcels. She must have known I needed a lift! I thought it was my birthday!
and there were trims.....
I think I might just have to go back to that shop and look for a bit more stuff.........you know you can never have enough in your stash! Just wish I was well enough to get started!!!
