What a week......

Not a good week health wise for poor hubs.    He collapsed on the bedroom floor in the early hours of Sunday morning and found himself in the back of an ambulance for a ride to our local hospital.    After a thorough examination and blood tests the diagnosis is cellulitis.   He spent 4 days in hospital and is now home with a nursing team visiting him daily for the next 4 days to administer his antibiotics intravenously along with doing blood tests and wound care.

Needless to say that sewing was put on the backburner however I did manage to sneak away while one of the nurses was with him for 2 hours today.    So far I have hopefully managed to cut enough coloured and white squares together with black and white strips to give me a good start at the quilting retreat next week.     My attending will entirely depend on the patient's progress this week so fingers and toes crossed for a speedy recovery.


Once my little squares were all piled up neatly and in order I went on to have play with some fabric


The plan is to get these cut and maybe even sewn up over the weekend but I am happy that I was at least able to achieve what I did today for FNSI

Back soon and in the meantime

Happy sewing all

Oh sending prayers and hope for your hubby's speedy recuperation... What a scare you must have had, the both of you!! The last 3years have included many late night ambulance rides and 3 surgeries for my hubby, so I totally get what you are going through...it is tough. Hang in there--happy you have your sewing to calm your own self down. Best wishes, hugs, Julierose

Sorry to hear about your poor hubby. I hope he is on the mend soon. I have spent many days and hours in the emergency dept and wards over the years with my hubby and back a couple of months ago. I never have enough light to sit and stitch there . Glad you found a couple of hours to yourself. Early morning ambulance and hospital visits are no fun.

Well, that was certainly a scary start to your week. Glad you managed to get a little sewing in. We quilters actually need to fit a little time in to relieve stress and I'm sure your stress levels were off the chart. Your projects have such beautiful colors. I hope that hubby continues to improve and that you'll be able to escape to your retreat.
