Yes !! the sun is shining and I feel so much better I can move quite comfortably now and put my arm out in most directions except backwards.... have managed to drop some of the painkillers as well. But no bending down yet ...ouch!
There are some freesia out now in the garden .... will leave it a few days before I try to take a picture then there will be enough to photograph. So spring is almost here, hopefully the frost are at an end, they have seen off my Orchids this year all burnt black by the frosts, such a shame as I have covered them every night Oh! well next year they will be okay fingers crossed.
I also had a go at driving today no problem ( God bless power steering ) I also had good practise at using only my mirrors as turning in the seat was a difficult maneuver to make ..... my car seat was very comfortable as it has lots of positions ..... including a lumber thing that supports you (hope you like the technical details ..things !)
I actually drove to the "Polynesian Hot Pools" and had a soak ...Bliss! and then stood under a very powerful shower that was piping hot .. Oh! gives me that lovely all over feeling just remembering it.
Yesterday I had the day at home (obviously no driving then) I decided to do a little bit of quilting on the machine ... silly move to make ... obviously not 100% mentally with it yet and made a complete hash of it .... so this evening is unpicking or reverse stitching. Although on the picture it does not look to bad ... believe me it is.
I have also managed to finish this needle case I was doing ... I like it very much .... but it will be winging it's way to a swap next week ... I think.
Stay a while and browse I chat about all nature of things mainly quilting and embroidery,but also life around us the fields, the flowers and family
Copying things from my blog
I am quite happy for people to use anything that I publish on my blog, if you wish to copy that is just great by me, I would treat that as a compliment, if it goes to a good cause then that is a double bonus.
Me. I am 70 yrs young, I finally went to university when I was in my 40's and received my diploma the same year as my daughter received hers. So there was life in the old gal.
I have been a follower and followed my then husband around the world, he working and me..I had a wonderful time and would not have changed a thing the experiences are 100 fold, I really must get around to writing a book. We have lived in France, USA, UK, Spain, Kuwait, Jordan, Philippines, China, Bahrain, Dubai and NZ to name but a few.
My nomadic life began in 1977 when my then husband was offered a job in Kuwait / Dubai Our wanderings continued and finally we ended up again in Dubai in 2006/9.. 30yrs later, so life has been in a full circle.
Stitching and Quilting kept me sane in all these years and are now my best friends. 2013 now sees me at home in New Zealand with my children and grand children and my last move from these shores. Vacations apart of course.
