the weekend rolls on....

my poor Mum fell last week,

she tripped on some pavers in the main street of Dunedin, and fell on her arm, this photo was taken just after her surgery to have plates and screws in the top of her arm (she fractured the upper part of her humerus, and dislocated her shoulder), there has been a lot (and I mean a LOT) more bruising and swelling come out since. Anyway she is recovering nicely now, and is well settled at home after a week in hospital.

I am in Twizel this week, with Rowing Man, we were supposed to be up here skiing last weekend, but with Mum's arm n all it didn't work out that way, so here I am, and have been since Wednesday...it has been pretty quiet... small town stuff huh... so I have done another couple of blocks for my Aunt Millie's Garden quilt, one more to go to complete the 12...


and in the process of machine appliquing, (yes I said machine - lazy I know, and I do actually prefer hand applique as it is so so relaxing, but I am in too much of a hurry for this quilt, it needs to be on my bed in Twizel when all of me is up here for good in 6 weeks)

ooops, missing a dot!! Will need to remedy that pretty quickly...

and I do like this one...

this is a peek at the Christmas in July tag swap, that I am in, and sent off to the USA in the mailbag last week...
rather bleak looking Twizel day, trying to decide if I shall continue on the applique, or go for a walk...
or maybe a bike ride....

or maybe just sit and enjoy a coffee... and find my book. Hmmmmm....


....and let me leave you with this then. This was the sunset last night... just beautiful huh!

have fun, Shiree

You are sounding very relaxed, must be that quiet atmosphere in Twizel. Your new blog look is great, very sleek and sophisticated. Millie's is looking fabulous, you go girl. Can't believe its only 6 weeks to you relax for good!!

Ohh your poor mum, hope that she is on the fast road to recovery. Aunt Millies Garden is looking stunning - I love fast and furious so machine appliquing is my most favourite :) Busy sale weekend at Sawmillers - so no biking for me - Yvonne loved your post on her blog :) Hugs Jxx
