I’m an almost-quilter. I have begun a number of quilts (almost finished a couple) and I need nagging encouraging to finish some. Meanwhile I drool at the wonderful quilting and fabric arts blogs in cyberworld (food from afar indeed), and accumulate more fabric!
I am sharing this giveaway (thanks to Jane for this!) And having “outed” myself as a quilter, I am hoping I will be urged into finishing some of my UFOs (which might need explaning to non-crafting people – UnFinished Objects) and posting evidence that I sew, as well as cook. (Those who knew me as a teenage academic nerd and young “career” woman might be amazed by my middle-aged “domesticity”!)
C had surgery on Saturday for a detached retina, a complication following cataract surgery which he had in June. He is at home, and has to keep his face down (either by lying face down or sitting hunched with his face parallel to the floor) till next Monday – 10 days in total. So far, so good. He is coping – and healing and has sight in his eye! Praying the retina stays attached! He has been blessed by his iPod (bought when he heard he had surgery the next day) and as he has been connected to earphones, I have been using MY mp3 player more. This is a song that blessed me today (Fernando Ortega is one of my favourites) and is aptly titled. Hope it blesses you too!
