Surgery over ...

We arrived at the hospital at 7.30am for DH's scheduled surgery yesterday. All the preliminary tests were fine and the operation went well. After a tiring day we arrived home around 6.30pm. He has to have 2 weeks complete rest now and then 6 weeks light duties and he should be good as new. He doesn't like to be inactive so it's going to be a fun 2 weeks.

When i was looking for something small to take with me, i came across the 2005 Nashville free design from LHN 'Thankful' and decided it was an apropriate chart to stitch as i would be very thankful if everything turned out well on the day. Inbetween reading my book and the daily newspaper i only managed to get a little stitched. Stitching frogs lurk in hospitals as well and are keen to stop you making any progress!!

When catching up on blogs today, i had a lovely surprise. Mylene had a drawing for her 3rd blogoversary and i was picked as the winner. She is a wonderful stitcher and her finishes are gorgeous, if you haven't visited her blog, it's well worth a visit. Thank you Mylene. xx

Karen and i have begun our SAL again this month. This time we chose Country Cottage Needleworks The Tea Room. We've decided to post update pics Sundays only. As Karen works nights and her shift pattern changes this means she can stitch any day of the week and not be committed to a certain day. I stitched on mine at the stitchy club on Wednesday and have an update to show you tomorrow ....

Hope you're having a good weekend


  1. Glad everything went well for your DH, oh boy will you need to strap him down then?
