Now for the wonderful news, Richard is now out of intensive care following his heart attack. It will be 7 weeks tomorrow since he had the heart attack and fractured his skull. We have had some very bad moments and there were times when the Doctors warned us he would not make it but now he is recovering, has been off the ventilator for over 10 days and breathing on his own. Has fought off 2 chest infections, pneumonia, sepsis and a blood clot in one of his lungs so all in all one tough guy. Now he needs to start building himself up, is on mashed food but hopes to have proper food soon, still unable to walk as he has lost so much weight only been eating just over a week and is extremely weak, . The brain is much better than expected and knows us but memory not back to normal, asked me when Mum was coming to visit, she passed away 10 years ago but when reminded he remembered.Cannot remember anything that happened in the 2 weeks prior to the attack but we are very hopeful. Praise be I am sure the prayers so many of you supported us with have helped and saved his life. Thankyou so much. His youngest son has to return to the Dominican Republic where he is a teacher next monday he will go back knowing that his Dad will be well cared for and improving daily.
Helen has 2 new feline friends unfortubnately Alfie died suddenly on 26th november we were so upset but now Charlie and Teddy have come to live with her, they are rescue brothers 18 months old and vert naughty! " new quilts to be made but they are not top of the list.
Now for some quilting I have got the berry cross quilt to the flimsy stage and very pleased with it.
I also made a chair runner a couple of days ago, I was given a large office chair on wheels it is ideal for using at the sewing machine cabinet but oh so cold to sit on as it is leather so made the runner, quite pleased as I picked the blocks and worked out sizing etc and even finished it, so nice to sit on! A couple of years ago would never have dreamt I could have made something without full instructions so feel I have progressed with my quilting.
At the novemeber Leeds MQG I started another urban neighbour hood quilt as I put it together wrong on the first one, it is now in the flimsy stage, Made from a jelly roll and black fabric for the contrast.
here is the previous one still a flimsy it might be wrong but I prefer it to the other one
Also completed was the last 2 blocks for the Blossom Hearts BOM
nip and tuck
all 24 blocks not joined together yet
I think that is enough for now!
Oh yes facebook many of you have requested me on facebook but though I do follow some private quilting groups I do not do the facebook thing, nothing personal but that is why I have not added you all too complicated for me, still struggling trying to understand insatgram.
