WOYWW 219 - Did you miss me?

Boy, have I had a fraught couple of weeks.

Getting on for three weeks ago, my poor 81 year old neighbour ( and BoJangles sitter)  Pat, tripped in her bedroom and managed to fracture her hip and her shoulder, resulting in a partial hip replacement, and since then myself and another of her friends have been back and forward to the hospital visiting because her two sons can't manage to visit until the weekends.  I would hate to think of her sitting there all week with no visitors.
Anyway, I'm pleased to say she's well on the mend and as of last Thursday she was supposed to be coming home...........then she wasn't.........then she was........then she wasn't again, but  not because she’s not ok.  It's all because they can’t sort out a care package for her….….apparently the London and Essex health authorities don’t communicate with each's so frustrating.

So with all that going on time for crafting has had to be snatched here and there when I’ve had half hour to spare and up until now there’s been nothing much to share with you, which is why I've not visited The Stamping Ground for    What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday  for a while.
But grabbing a little crafting time here and there can prove productive in the end and on my desk this week is the fruits of my labours….....….more cards for the   LillyBo Quilt Project . 

There are 33 this time round, bringing my grand total up to 101 cards in all and I think we are up to quilt 59 on the blog, which is just amazing,  so there should be enough cards to keep us going for a little while longer.

Here’s some close ups of the latest batch.


I’ve also managed to do some stitching in the evenings, mostly Disney squares for  Stitches Of Love And Kindness  and also I’ve done a bit more to my Celtic Autumn Lady. 

You can check out all of my stitching progress over at   I’d Rather Be Stitchin’   but here’s a quick peek at just one of the squares to wet your appetite.


Thanks for stopping by and

 Happy Crafting!
