First I would like to thank everyone for the lovely comments in the last posts. I will reply to all slowly.
I had such a wonderful stitching day on Saturday with my lovely friends but then a couple of hours after arriving home I began to feel unwell .The next morning (Mother's Day) still in pain I went to see my doctor and she gave me a letter and told me to go to the emergency section of Knox hospital. They started me on an IV drip, did blood test and CT scan they then admitted me. So I am now sitting in my room with an IV in my arm feeding 2 different antibiotics. Turns out I have diverticulits ,an infection on the right side of my bowel wall,so will be here for the next couple of days.
Now being a devoted patchworker I asked my husband to bring in one of my stitching projects last night which he did and left it sitting on the chair. This morning when the nurse came in to check my IV she noticed the project well need I say anymore......lol......Dearne is working on Dear Prudence using 3/4" hexagons and her daughter is working on an Grits quilt La Passion.
Another great night having fun stitching with friends. I finished some more Stonefield blocks. If you would like to go and see what everyone else got up to go here. Thanks Cheryll for hosting another great night.
I tried my hand at a basket pattern I had bought last year using up left over fabric from another project. I had so much fun with it that I am thinking of making another but this time using the appliqué design from the original pattern which is more detailed and covers most of the front of the basket.
Thank you Wendy for hosting another FNSI it is so wonderful to know you are in the company of so many like minded friends in so many different parts of the world. I have been working on my Stonefields blocks finishing them off last night. Click on Wendy's name to go and see all the other lovely projects being worked on. Wendy
This is the walking bag designed by Lessa Chandler I made last week for my lovely friend Shelley. On the 21st of this month she is having a knee replacement and I thought the bag would be very handy when on crutches. Shelley is always organising our little group with great days out, our yearly quilting crawl as well as our monthly stitching day at her house. Always inspiring us with her beautiful quilts and stitcheries.
The side zip pocket is great for your phone or purse.
My Tilda dachshund that I made for my granddaughter Jessica's 20th birthday. I found the pattern for
Dave The Dachshund- Sew Magazine free download. At sew mag.co.uk
Hehe..she loved Dave so much when I gave him to her,not putting him down , and has asked if I could make more in different sizes, she wanted a real dachshund for her birthday but her mum said no as Jess is always out when not studying or working part time, so I made her a substitute.
