I know that you have been wondering where I was, and thankyou so much for being concerned. We had a very sick little Georgia who wound up in hospital for three days. A huge and enormous 'thankyou' to all the amazing staff at The Angliss Hospital for absolutely everything. We are so blessed to have such a wonderful hospital so very close to home. I wish I could thank each of you individually.
Of course I stayed in hospital with Georgia and so that meant I could not go and teach in South Australia at The Patchwork Apple. Jane was incredibly understanding and so were all of you lovely ladies I missed catching up with. I was very torn between my commitment to you and being a Mother. I was grateful when Rosie took the decision out of my hands and decided to fill in for me. So a HUGE thankyou to Rosie.
So, my littlest angel is all better now after suspected viral meningitis and life is returning to normal. My heart goes out to any of you with children with an ongoing medical condition, I don't know how you keep up the energy. I only had six days away from designing and only was home to have a quick shower. There was no time to pay bills, get to the supermarket, or any of those daily little tasks that 'must' be done. Hubby and I were just so grateful to be surrounded by family and friends that really helped us.
Melinda came and brought me real coffee and colouring books for Georgia, for when she had some better moments, and when Rosie came in it was just good to have a bit of a cry and know she was there. Gail was not far away always asking what I might need. I know there were prayers said by many including my 'other Mum and Dad' that were most certainly heard. Thankyou all, I love you all very much.
So with all that over now, I have been frantically trying to catch up. I hope you like these photos of my little (work in progress) project for the 'Under The Mulberry Tree', 'Stitchery of the Month Club'. I cannot tell you how excited I am to be using Rosie's new range of fabric in the project. As many of you know it's been a dream of Rosie's to design fabric since she was in highschool with me. It was so hard to cut into it as it seemed so precious, so I did "measure twice cut once" before I began!
I have so much to blog about, you'll be hearing from a bit over the next week!
