An oldie

Unsurprisingly, I haven't been doing a lot of sewing since we got back from the beach! Between looking after the boys, and the house, and hospital visits, and making a cameo appearance at the office, my time has been well and truly taken up. The good news is that my husband had his surgery on Monday and they put him back together (with eleven pins in his arm, gulp).

And now he's back home; a bit sore but given everything he's gone through he's surprisingly alert and managing the pain well. We grumbled a bit about him being bumped off the surgery list on Sunday by some emergencies, but given that it was all done in the public system (i.e completely free) and he was looked after so well the whole time, we feel pretty happy with his treatment and very lucky about where we live.

I took this quilt over to NZ in the suitcase of quilts that I left with the whanau - I blogged about the piecing but never showed a picture of the finished product. So here it is! I followed the circles with big stitch and it's a very soft finish. So now it's sitting in Dad's cupboard rather than mine. Is this progress?
