Things.........

Here's my wee mom....this very stubborn Irish lady decided to go for a walk while I was away at the trailer....it was quite a significant walk...she was determined to get to the Winners store...she was bored and wanted to buy a blue t-shirt...and a shower cap.....well, after walking a few kilometres, her hip cracked and down she went...fortunately, right in front of the fire station...ambulance was called...she insisted that she was fine..just needed to get her 'sea legs'...but after a trial walk, she accepted the fact that maybe it should be exrayed...fractured pelvis! So, she's been in the hospital for the past week...nothing they can really do...just has to knit back together itself....speaking of knitting...thought I'd take some to her...she's sooooooooo bored......today, they're suppose to take her to a convalescent home for rehab.....I hope it wont be too long before she's back in the Retirement Home.....





Here's sweet Jairus...with his quilt...finally done...I started it last September and I'm afraid it took me about three months longer than usual to get it done....I think he's pleased...

This is a pic of the whole thing...I finished sewing the binding on at the trailer and asked our next door trailer neighbor if I could lay it on her hammock to take the picture...she so ever nicely said...'sure'...


Now if I could just get the time to get the next top done, I'd be happy! It's quite unsettling not to have a quilt to sit down and relax with....and with my life right now I need lots of relaxation.....
all for today!
