That's what it feels like.
If I was wanting to be a lady of leisure I'd be in 7th heaven, but alas I am a doer not a watcher, so being idle is not fun.
Over the weekend Blossom and I played countless games of...
...and watched numerous episodes of -
- and -
...whilst Mr Elefantz hovered close by to be of assistance in any way he could. I was very well cared for.
A wonderful new book arrived for me to gush over, and as I slowly took in every wonderful photograph a list of things to do in our new home once I am recovered began to grow...
Today Mr Elefantz, Blossom and Slicer are all at work, and a call to the surgeon was made to find out 'what' next with my post-surgery dressings. I was not given any information on leaving the hospital. The news was good - I was at last able to remove the cumbersome dressings of HERE, and have a look at the wound site...
It's very swollen and quite sore, but I redressed it with a clear wound cover, and then a smaller bandage. I still cannot use the recovering finger, but now my other fingers can be used to grip things (and type a bit easier)..
Finally the 'tattoo' is removed as well - I laughed so hard at some of your comments with regards to the permanent marker the surgeon left on my arm. Bless you for all the lovely comments, wishes, prayers, and hugs. You are all angels!!
The mailman brought me a gorgeous parcel of fabrics today, and while I'm unable to stitch I am thinking of projects to use them in over the months ahead. They are fat eighths from Australian Lynette Anderson's 'Stitches' fabric line - I love them!
These two are my favourites.
The new Homespun issue is out and this gorgeous birdcage captured my eye immediately.
Can't you see this hanging from my ornate pressed tin ceiling and white walls?
The designer is Sarah Saliba and you can see more of her creativity HERE.
Don't forget that Homespun can be purchased through Borders in the US now, or go to the Homespun website for information on subscriptions.
I can whisper to you that I'll have two projects in Homespun early next year...
If you haven't already done so, take advantage of the beautiful free 'Stitch-a-long" on the Homespun website HERE. All the blocks are up now, with the final quilt assembly instructions due up on the 11th. The quilt was designed by another talented Aussie, Sam MacKenzie. You can visit Sam's blog HERE.
Time to boil the kettle as Mr Elefantz is on his way home from work. My favourite time of the day!
