Finally feeling better...

...and so I'm thrilled to be back in our lovely bit of blog world.  To celebrate my return I'm having a GIVEAWAY

Just leave me a comment on this post and you might win a $25 gift voucher to Jane's wonderful on-line shop Want it, Need it, Quilt.  Please spread the word that I'm blogging again and you can have a second entry. You have a week to join in - I'll draw the winner next Wednesday the 4th of July.

While I was sick a few goodies arrived at my house.  I received two swap blocks as part of  Quilting Block Swaps Australia, from Helene and Ilse.  I love them both.



Lovely bloggers Christine and Simone came to visit and Simone bought me some more little hexies for my hexie purse.  


Thank you so much.


One of the main reasons I've been missing for a while is because my doctors and I have been trying to get my pain under some kind of control.  It's hard for me to get real pain relief and be awake, so I've spent much of the last few weeks asleep.  As a consequence I've not got any sewing to share.  Anything I did sew is going to have to be redone as sewing while on opiates gives some very weird results!!!  I plan to lock myself in my sewing room for the next few days, so if you are waiting for a parcel from me, please don't worry it will arrive soon.



I've decided to wait until July 9th to share the next part of my Home Sweet Home BOM.  I want to concentrate on my swap obligations first and hopefully a month's break will give people time to catch up on their penny rugs. Here's a hint about Part 6 which will be on this blog on July 9th.


FABULOUS FREE STUFF
As part of A Little Bit French lovely Cheryl at Willowberry Designs is sharing this really beautiful laundry bag.  I love this project and it will be on my July White Rabbits To Do list.
Here is the LINK.  Many many thanks to Cheryl.

Lastly I want to send a huge thank you to everyone who sent me get well wishes.  Look at this beautiful card from Shez.

What  wonderful friends I have in blog world, you mean the world to me.

  20. wow, thanks for the giveaway! glad you are feeling better.
    Gasp! The Cuzco line is amazing. what a great site for fabric.
    and, I've gotta say, your little hexies look adorable! I'm still learning quilting techniques and have never really cared for hexies (handsewing? no thanks...I'm into big, fast blocks) :). However, after seeing your little cuties and the awesome hexagon template on Want it, Need it, Quilt...I'm reconsidering. :)

  36. Welcome back. I am glad to hear you are feeling better. Dealing with chronic pain is no picnic...I know. Take it easy and don't push to get too much done too fast, although locking yourself in your sewing room sounds like a wonderful idea. I may just do the same!

    Thank you for the chance to win a give-away.
