Today I feel so blessed. So blessed that my beautiful eldest daughter, mother of my 2 grandsons 2 1/2 and 12 weeks old is safely back home. You see, after having successful gallbladder surgery followed by a day surgery to remove a stone they couldn't reach with the previous surgery she returned home but a few days later, early Sunday morning she collapsed and was bleeding. Yesterday she came home after 2 days in ICU and one day on a ward. After 4 units of blood , another surgery followed by a gastroscopy we are so relieved that she is well on the mend now. She is an amazing gal. Today she was resting at home and feeding my little baby grandson. Yes, actually breastfeeding him. 
Thankyou to a special bloggy friend who prayed for us and to another special friend who sent me a care package before the last awful turn if events. Our healing angels have been working overtime.

So, as you can imagine, not much creativity has been happening here. This is as far as I have got with my table topper.

I found these in a drawer which I had stitched ages ago for Christmas gifts. To be honest I have no idea which Christmas they were for .

It has taken me about 3 weeks to finish this book. I just wasn't in the right headspace for reading much.

So many things went awry during this time. I had to have a couple of procedures the morning after my daughter's rush to hospital. Even her poor hubby had to have a tooth extracted. I guess the planets weren't aligning or some such thing. One has to try to keep their sense of humour but this latest episode really tested me. I hope your week has been a blessed one. 

Angel hugs.


  1. What a terrible time. Glad to hear that you are all on the mend.

  2. Hi Ondrea wow i hadnt realized that all this was going on ,so glad everything is ok with you all now.
    Sorry my head has been in a muddle so many things going on at the moment that i thought today was Wednesday and i missed going with my walking group,my sister said something about the moon,so maybe that is affecting us all.

  4. Sometimes everything happens at once Ondrea, doesn't it. So good to hear your daughter is back home and recovering, she has been through a very rough time. She sounds like one strong woman, like her Mum!! Hope your procedures went ok. Your crafting will happen when you are feeling like it and life calms a bit for you. Your table topper is looking good.

  5. Gall stones are not always a simple fix So pleased your girl is ok again
    Yes things always seem to happen at once
    Take care

  6. So glad that your daughter is home and doing well and I hope that all is well with you too. xx
