After enjoying a wonderful catch up with Dawn of  sew much to quilt I am eager to try free motion quilting but hmmmm ...not sure if I might be better off with blanket stitch.

Surprise Visitor

Two weeks ago I was back in hospital for 5 days with some side effects of diverticulitis ( my new me When I looked up I saw Melody ( The House On The Side Of The Hill ) with a big smile on her face. Wow ..... I was so happy to see her and catch up with all the news. She came to sit with me to help pass the time more quickly while I was waiting for the results of my enteroclysis scan which she read about on my FB page. Of Course Mel being Mel she also came bearing a beautiful gift. As she explained this would be perfect to take with me for my visits to the doctors or to start sewing while I was in hospital as everything I needed was in the lovely tin. 
So very considerate and thoughtful Mel thank you again for a wonderful afternoon of catching up xx

Love my adorable owl stitchery by the talented Rosalie Quinlan.



I'm still very tired with a mixture of good days and bad days. I will be going back  to hospital this Wednesday ( 3 days only ) for an exploratory colonoscopy to check out a section which could be the culprit that doesn't realise the party is 
I am reading all the beautiful and inspiring blogs but not always leaving comments, I will hopefully start catching up with that soon.xx

As I walked up the stairs this Morning I thought I was going to finally find my old body upstairs waiting for me after over 40 days of this one I was eager for my old self. But alas no :(   not yet. Boy I must have done something ..... to body off, I have tried to make up for it, spoiling it with soups,delicious fruit smoothies and lots of rest. Still I am starting to see a smile peeking through every now and then so hopefully it's just playing hard to get and I am finally making a bit of head way......hehe........
Also a big thank you to all my lovely blogging friends especially Shez, Tracee, Maria, Wendy, for your understanding and gentle reminders of my silly (foggy head) mistakes (names, dates, blogs. Oops perhaps it's just anyway love you all and thanks.xx
