Wendy's design for FNSI

Life has been pretty hectic around here so last night it was lovely to sit down and stitch along with Wendy and friends
I had some stitcheries done so last night made a couple of completed items
I saw this design of Wendy Bertello's in a magazine prior to ANZAC day last year and it has been on my to do list
Wendy's design was appliqued but I chose to stitch it
Very happy with the result Hope Wendy is too
A coat hanger for a little girls birthday
Off to see what others got up to last night

My Mum

Thanks for all the lovely messages re my Mum
She was fine after her fall but four days later could not get out of bed
Luckily she has  her metpac buzzer She was taken by ambulance to hospital and had has been there ever since
 Doctor Arrogant  said it was her sciatica and she would have to just get used to it as it would keep happening and not much they can do because she is 87
I hope one day he gets to feel that sort of pain
The next doctor who was quite lovely said it was a crumbling disc in her back
I questioned as to wether maybe she had a hairline fracture OH No way It is the disc
Moved from  Emergency to the ward and they gave her a scan (Third since her first fall) and now it is a fracture
Maybe I should have been the doctor
She was treated with pain killers
Today she was moved to Rehab
I have been over every day so nothing much happening on the sewing front

Once again, last night I joined with Cheryll and friends for a lovely night of stitching
Not that I got much stitching done, just some preparation really
I have been stitching Michelle's Calendar bear quilt from Country Threads magazine. These three I have already done
Last night I traced April and a coat hanger

And sorted fabric for a quilt from Patchwork and Quilting magazine that the girls at my quilting group are going to work on this year
It is a block of the month We are already three months behind
Thanks Cheryll for another fun night
Iam off to see my Mum today
She had another fall yesterday, her second in three months
