Not even a week really though it feels like it’s all gone in slow motion.
Remember my little Scarecrow for our Village Gathering last time? Well that morphed into this at 07.30 Wednesday 1st September.
John came back from the dog walk not feeling too well. Thankfully we have good friends and a defibrillator in the village as well as an amazing Air Ambulance service. He was in having surgery in under 10 minutes of taking off. I couldn’t see him while he was in hospital of course, but I picked him up on Friday afternoon and he’s now home with a huge pile of tablets, a list of can and can’t do’s and the penchant to complain, in a nice way, about the ribs I broke/dislocated keeping him alive. I’m just happy he can still moan at me.
I thank my little lucky Scarecrow for showing the ambulance and air ambulance the way. (They all thought he was great!) He also went on to win the villagers choice at the gathering on Saturday. I urge all of you to check if there is a Defibrillator near you, who to call to get it to you should you need it and how to use it. If you don’t have one near perhaps join forces to have one installed.
While twiddling my thumbs at home I put together a purse using some lovely furnishing fabric as the front and back.
For the sides and lining I quilted some of Alison Hulme’s fabrics I’d bought at her studio in a scrap bag. Not sure it need the thickness of quilting but it has a nice body to it so sits well.
I also knitted these two for the Nativity Knits. So cute and very Eeyore.
This weeks bug on the Box is a bee. I turned mine into a Buff Tail. Love Turkey Rug stitch.
Ellie taking it all in her stride.
Hug those loved ones and have a good week ahead.
