A little of this and a little of that.

I have again not been sewing as Andrea has continued with her illness.
5 weeks ago she had an emergency appendectomy!  Then a severe migraine. Again into Emergency
Two more trips to hospital ....and now..
Now nasty abdominal pains !
More Doctors visits..
I hope she is back to school next week!! 

So I have had my Nurses hat on!
I did manage a quick trip to the shops :)  and...

I bought some gold Dupioni silk and some grey 100% silk!
I plan to FMQ them for cushion covers for my daughters.

Thankfully Andrea felt well enough - after medication - and hungry enough - to cook this wonderful meal
The recipe was made up, which is her style.
It was scrumptious! and so nice to have her cook for us.

The table cloth that the plate is on is a cloth that belonged to my Grandmother...and I plan to
back it with a coloured fabric ..and FMQ it...sometime :)
It has some bits missing and I have to figure out how to 'fix' that.

I am sewing now!  My WCQ ...which would be great to get finished.

Glad your daughter seems to be on the mend! Hope she is feeling much better. Looks yummy and your Grandmother's fabric is priceless. :)

I'm sorry to hear that Andrea (and yourself) are having such a horrid time - I'm hoping she's on the mend now and that you'll all get back to normal soon.

I hope you daughter gets better quickly. Hopefully the worst is over.

That silk will be lovely with your quilting! You definitely need a break in wearing your nurse's cap! Hope everyone feels better soon!

I hope Andrea is feeling better. Poor thing. Thats a lot going on! Tablecloth is gorgeous. What a treasure. It'll be beautiful quilted too.

I'm hoping Andrea has seen the worst of it for a long time, it must be such a worry and hope she's well on the mend. The silk looks lovely and will be gorgeous quilted. I'd love to see the end result of your plans for the tablecloth.

Joan, I am glad Andrea was well enough to get up and cook/eat. What an awful round of illness she has had! May the blessing of good health soon be yours (hers)!
