I love this blog to bits

I hope you all like my new layout as much as I do, because I LOVE it.

Anyway it's been a week and a half since I last blogged.  I haven't done anything at all because I have had an abscess on one of my teeth for the last four weeks and have been in such pain it honestly has been worse than childbirth and I've had three of them - children that is.

What a pain in the you know where!  I am now on my fourth lot of antibiotics which is the most I have ever had in my entire life.  I don't take them generally but save them for when I really need them because I am allergic to so many.  So I've had two lots of one that I am not allergic to and am about to start on the 2nd lot of the second one that so far I am not allergic to.  The allergy had always turned up the second time I take an antibiotic but as there won't be any gap in taking the 2nd lot of this one maybe it won't happen.  The last time I took any antibiotic was 5 years ago and that was the first lot I took that had absolutely no effect whatsoever.  Before that it wasn't on my records at all and I have been with the same doctor for the past 30 years so you can see how rarely I take them.

I have found out (because somebody told me) that it seems to subside when I am sitting up but when I am in bed and laying down it is just awful so last night I sat up all night and haven't slept at all and my tooth isn't killing me today - yet but tonight I am definitely going to bed.

So what did I do all night.  Well I redid this blog and I really love it because it isn't full of stuff on the sides and top.  And now I am going to show you what I have been up to before a month ago.

All images are clickable to enlarge them.

This is the front of the Pin Cushion I made and 
sent at the end of April if memory serves me right
but I don't think it ever arrived at it's
destination.  I offered to redo another one
but haven't heard which is just as well 
really as I have been in pain - okay
so I am a pain.

And this was the back.  I really loved
making this and would happily make it
something like it again.

This is the first of a lot of blocks I am making
for my elder daughter's birthday.  But I'm afraid she 
shall have to wait and it will be really late as I
have to make some other stuff first - but I'm
sure she will be find with waiting.  I really loved making
this too as it is a quilt as you go and was a lot of fun
and can't wait to make some more of them.

This is the first block I chose to make of 
Ryan & Charlie of 
I think I like it but
I should have stuck with some of 
the colorways they chose.

The other things that have changed in this blog is there are lots more icons on both sides of the blog that lead to really really interesting places and I hope you like seeing them as much as I do.  So please click on them because they all take you somewhere really special.

So that's about it from me for today except to say I will be back a lot sooner than I have been posting and I have really missed you all.

Lots of Love

  1. The pin cushion is fab! I hope it has found it's way to it's detonation. I love the colours you used ( so does a Brit living in America writing to an American living in Britain spell color the US way or British way)
    Good job on the blocks as well

  2. Should read destination not detonation thank you iPad for your silly corrections


I absolutely LOVE it when you leave a comment and I read each and every comment and try to reply to you all.
