Long time between blogs!

Well for me anyway!

The past few days have been utter madness.  rather than quilting or blogging (or both!!) I've been:

  • Nursing a somewhat sick kidlet
  • Trying not to get sick myself
  • Doing the school run for a now not-so-sick kidlet
  • Going to visit Dad in hospital (usually with kidlet in tow)
  • Battling the Nemesis

I'm sure there's more but that's the start of things anyway!Free Icons

Saw the surgeon this morning.  He thought a late onset infection in the bone is a possibility but not all that likely given timing.  I kind of agree but some of these infections take years to show up and the person has obviously been out of pain before the infection appeared...but anyway.

I had a lovely cortisone injection into the joint and am to come back in 3 weeks.  Gagging he didn't want to say it but given our plans to re-start IVF in Oct, I'm probably looking at another op.

Despite everything, I haven't been ENTIRELY neglectful of my sewing!  I've pieced the remaining square-in-a-square blocks for the Chocolate Aqua quilt and completed 2 more sections which brings me to 9 out of 15!  I'm more than halfway!

I also went along to Gisborne Quilters but that's another story in itself!!
