Since the end of January life has been a bit of a whirl.
First I had my lovely week at Meadow Gate and then my dear Mummy was taken ill with a heart attack, she was found to have blocked arteries and so had to have triple bypass surgery.
This meant we have been back and forth to hospital to keep her company (and sane!!) - having spent a lot of time in hospital myself during my last pregnancy I know that visitors are one of the few things to look forward to when you are in for any length of time.
Mum came out of Southampton hospital just five days after her surgery (and just the day after leaving HDU) and spent a week at home, but has been very poorly and this Monday had to go back in :0(
After much umming and ahhing on the doctors part, treatment for pulmonary oedema and anaemia it transpires that she has a clot in her chest and has to stay in now until they have got rid of it.
Fortunately she is in the local hospital now, which is nearer (and much nicer!!) to us. We're hoping she will be out in time for Mother's Day on Sunday....
Despite all of this I have managed to squeeze in a bit of crafting!!
On my nieces request I made her an owl cushion:
Which she was very pleased with:
And I started the quilt I am making for our king size bed:
I am making it using the quilt-as-you-go method as I know I won't be able to manage quilting such a large quilt once its finished and full size.
Mr G put up my latest vintage mirror and has declared No More!!:
Personally, I think there is space for at least one or two more!!
I've been after a pressed glass dressing table set and found one in a charity shop for the bargain price of £3.75:
As well as all this I have managed to do a hideous blonde bodge job on my hair, but I think that is a tale for another time....
