What a wonderful surprise the postman brought me. The postmark was France, how exciting. When I opened it I found s beautiful hand dyed zip pouch, from the very talented Baukje at http://busybeefree.blogspot.com.au
I love it and will keep as my special pouch to carry my bits and pieces when travelling. Thank you so much my dear friend.
Woohoo the first FNWF for 2016 Hosted by Cheryl, if you would like to see what everyone else got up to last night just go here
My first FNWF and my first blocks for 2016.
I started New Year's Day about 12.30 am after waking up from a restless sleep. I couldn't go back to bed so I tried my first bit of needle turn since my operation. Well as we all know once you start stitching...... woohoo ......no turning back. I managed to finish my first Stonefields block for the new year, then over the next couple of weeks another and last night I finished the third.
I am finally starting to get my strength back after my surgery. This is one of several blocks that I made before my operation but didn't manage to post, so I will slowly start posting them and hopefully get back into stitching very soon.
Also I would like to thank everyone for all your get well wishes they really helped me through some very bad times. All my love for your wonderful support.xxx
Home at last after 13 days in hospital with all its ups and oh so many downs. I am still very very weak but hopefully the next couple of weeks I will begin to get my strength back. I have to take things very slowly for the next six weeks. Sorry no jokes this round really knocked me about.
I would like to thank you all for your words of encouragement they really helped me get through. It will be a little longer before I start to blog but in the next few days I hope to start catching. THANK YOU.
Good morning to all my beautiful blogging friends. All went well on Wednesday with my surgery. What was supposed to take 3 hours ended up taking two surgeons 5 1/2 hours. Needless to say it was a massive clean up after all the partying down there.. Hehe.. I still have a long way to go but just wanted to let everyone one know that it was all the good wishes prays and hugs from all my fiends in blog land Facebook and Phillip island Patchworkers not to mention my husband and family that has helped me through this surgery and the recovery that is following. I can't lift anything more than my iPhone at the moment so I won't be able to answer anyone for quite awhile. THANK YOU THANK YOU it warms my heart knowing I have all of you out there and makes this recovery so much more bearable. Also seeing the strength in Melody, Joss, Carol (non blogger) shez and others that I know who put on their smiling faces helps me through this. sending you all big hugs and kisses xox
