Done and dusted....


Thanks for the well wishes.... surgery went off fine and I got back home the same day (which is what I specially wanted).

I had my gall bladder removed as I had been having terrible pains with stones rockin' and rollin' inside of me...

It's a common operation I know, I have been lucky with good health - it was my first need for hospital in Australia and we have been here since 2002.

Luckily I managed ChooseDay sewing before...

I made up these two blocks for Les Courtiers.... (9" blocks)


and then lots of stitching, slicing, stitching and sizing up for these pinwheels.....  there are a bunch of loose ones too... (3" blocks)


For a long time I have been wanting to make a sewing machine cover so finally made a start.  The Quilters Angel have some of this gorgeous machine fabric in and a pattern which can be adapted to the size of the machine.... 


I have had that stitchery done for years so am using it as a focal point....  still lots to do on that project ...

Anyway, back at home and having to take it fairly quietly ....  I did get on and do a fair bit of the crochet blanket.... such a lovely thing to do not requiring too much thought …. 


… and I did work on making the heel for my socks when I needed a bit of time not thinking about my tummy.... 


Righto, Gotto Go... think I'll have my little walk around before some more crochet....

Take it easy, Fiona......it's the best way to recover! I prescribe a little gentle stitching for any discomfort.

I'm glad you had a successful surgery! Now is the leisurely climb back to having all your strength and energy. Relax and let the Hubs wait on you hand and foot. I love the colors in your crochet piece, and that sewing machine stitchery is perfect for the cover. So fun!

Pleased to hear your op went well and you're mobile and recuperating well. Love what you've been doing. A couple of machine covers have been on my to-do list for a while too... has your Sw16 got one? Your crochet and socks are looking great. Oh and your blocks too of course!
