Its been a while since I posted and its been a while since I have picked up a needle too.
People who know me through the sewing forums or on Facebook, know what has been happening. Figured its time to let you know as well.
Back a couple of weeks ago, Pat was taken by ambulance to hospital with pneumonia and spent 4 days in hospital. He was given a wonderful birthday present while in hospital....a get out of hospital card on his birthday.
Having him home was wonderful, even if my hands were full caring for him.
This trip into hospital knocked him for an 8 and me for a 6. Other times he has been in hospital I have coped well and slept like a log. Not this time round, I was awake a lot and so tired when he came home. I am thinking its due to the higher threat to his health with the pneumonia on top of the Occupational Asthma.
In the last 10 days Pat has been out of hospital, he has improved and each day Pat looks better in the morning.
In the mail one day a gift came from a lovely lady from a sewing group I am a member of. Diana sent me the following items/notions wrapped in some beautiful fabric.
How cute are these little fabric panels?? I'm thinking maybe a cushion for the lounge room..... or a lap quilt.
Some notions and a couple of patterns.
This beautiful fabric wrapped the above goodies.
Thanks Diana so much. Your thoughts and gift brought a much needed smile to my face. Love you heaps.
With Pat being so sick, sewing has taken a back seat. By night time, I am so tired from my busy day, that I just vegged out in front of the TV.
My BOMs are behind by a month, swaps were not getting to my swappers by the right time......after a good think and much soul searching ( I take my swaps very serious) I have pulled out of the ones I had put my name forward in, but hadn't been drawn. Plus the 2 on going swaps I was involved in each month.
Do you know I felt a weight lifted off my shoulders and was actually in a light hearten mood the next day.
No pressure, no calendar screaming at me. Today I actually managed to do some sewing for the first time in my house in about a fortnight.
A much needed bag holder.
Nothing flash, no applique or stitchery....... just some good old fashion straight stitch on my lovely sewing machine.
It's lined too, as the fabric isn't of a thick quality. So now I have a new bag holder for those fruit and veg bags from the green grocer, I like to use when I need one.
Just a lovely, quick little item to get my mojo kick started. I need to sew for the love of sewing, not because there is a date looming and it needs to go somewhere, for someone else.
