HQAL – Sunday 16th Jan 2022

It’s the 16th already – does time fly!!!!

Well I haven’t applied one stitch to the Pirate Quilt but I will endeavour to do better in the next three weeks – promise!

My husband has just had a Staghorn Kidney Stone removed and he is still in hospital as I type (Saturday evening). I am hoping that he will come home tonight- as long as I can organise someone to collect him. He was admitted on Wednesday morning and I haven’t seen him since as the hospital is a Covid one and “no visitors allowed”, I miss him terribly. Nurse Mason is waiting to look after him. However, after cleaning the house thoroughly my spare time has been used admirably. I have started on a secret quilt for my husband called “Nashville” , have a look at my initial layout.

The idea is the top part to look like the stage and the octagons are to be table and chairs (going to add some black honeycomb shapes) around these. And there is a big American Car that my husband always likes. Some thing may change when it comes to putting everything together.

Secondly I have managed to sew together the Snoopy Quilt. It was basically a large piece of material, with wadding and backing which I used my Singer Hand Sewing Machine to stitch straight lines horizontally and some vertical ones and is now ready for the binding stage. Bit of a cheat really but I like it.

Well that is me for now, but what a start for 2022.

Please pop along to the other members and see how they have faired with there individual projects.

Happy New Year to anyone who I haven’t said it already.

  1. Your snoopy quilt is adorable, it looks very 4th of July to me. Your husband is going to love his quilt. I hope you can keep it a surprise for him. Hopefully he is home soon if not now as I write. Positive thoughts for better health and quick healing for him. (it’s really tough on everyone with covid and the situations in the hospitals)


  2. Hope your husband recovers quickly. My husband had 3-4 kidney stones in his life. One was the size of a blueberry. Hope you have a good week!


  3. Hello Daisy! I just thought I’d pop by your blog to say a huge thank you for the package, we received it as we got home from holidays (I reckon it had been sitting at our front door for a bit). I’ll write back to you very soon, I love the secret quilt it’s going to look wonderful ❤️ sending hugs
