Goodbye..............For Now

It's been a while, again.   Unfortunately my condition I told you about on my last post has worsened, I can't sew at all and it's unlikely that I will be able to for some time.   The good news is that it is a mechanical problem so it's not life threatening or anything like that.

The bad news is I'm in quite a lot of pain, it's better than it was but that's due to several different types of pain meds which now allow me to walk a few yards and in the last week I managed to use the stairs.    Oh the bliss of sleeping in a bed instead of a sofa, and being able to take a shower instead of washing a piece at a time, I'm just thankful I have a downstairs loo with a handbasin, imagine the problems if I didn't!

Apart from not blogging I haven't been reading blogs either.  Sorry about that, it's just that with the pain meds a fog tends to descend within my brain and I can't think straight, actually I can't talk properly either as I slur my words, no not like I usually do after a glass or two of my favourite red wine I'll have you know!  I have to do what I can when I can.

The good news is I saw a consultant last week and he thinks he knows what's causing the problem although it needs to be confirmed which may take a while due to waiting lists.  Once it is I'm assuming I go on to another waiting list for spinal surgery.  That's the part I'm not looking forward to.  My doctor tells me there is still a chance it will right itself on it's own so fingers crossed.

My only regret is that I had to drop out of the Christmas in July hop, but Sarah says I can participate next year.

But I have to tell you about the wonderful girls in Bee Inspired, the quilting Bee I have the honour to be a member of.   When I told them about not being able to sew they made a list of all the remaining months and all volunteered to make angel blocks for me, and the ones who didn't manage to bag a month are in a list in case anyone has to drop out.  Now that's friendship for you.  Sorry, I can't add a link but you can find it on a lot of my old posts.

I have to go now as I feel the fog descending and I can't think straight.  I will be back sometime but I don't know when so please don't delete me from your email or Bloglovin list.

I did want to tell you something else but I can't remember, sorry.

Here are some pics of some of the things I have made I really like, only you will have to search for the post because I don't think I can find them.  The ones which are my own have a free tutorial with them, like the Christmas cushions.

I'm not sharing this post at all, it will go out only to those of you who like my posts enough to subscribe, and those of you who get them via other sources, in particular via Life After Money, with special thanks to Mean Queen aka, Ilona, who added my blog to her special list of favourites.

Until then,
With love and smiles from,

No I haven't forgot the pics although I nearly did hehe!




















The End...........for now...............
