What I got up to at FNSI

Well, I was expecting to be stitching in the motel for our last day with Dad in hospital buuuuut…….he decided to tell the doctor Friday morning that he was fine and didn’t need to stay in any longer, so signed himself out!  The doctor agreed, he would be ok if he’d been able to pass a good amount of urine by himself, ensuring his kidney was working properly…….sneaky dad told me later that even if he hadn’t, he would have filled up the jar from the tap in the bathroom so he could come home!

What do you do with them?  But isn’t medicine amazing?  He had a whole kidney removed on Wednesday, up walking Thursday and going home by 10am Friday morning….and yes…..he was a bit wonky Friday but he’s been good yesterday and today, but still naughty….doing things he shouldn’t like bending over, taking his blood clot stockings off and refusing to wear them, and lifting things ….ggggrrrrr…..do men EVER grow up?

Anyway, that meant that Friday night was at home and I got time to do some stitching of a few new designs….Christmas ones I’ll be releasing soon….

…and yes, it IS meant to be blurry…..can’t give too much away now can I?  But I can tell you I’ve been stitching them up in these gorgeous threads….

….aren’t they just perfect?

I’m off to see what everyone else got up to at FNSI…..have you been for a visit yet?  You can find all the links HERE.  And for those of you participating, don’t forget to blog about your Friday Night….I’ll be drawing the prize tomorrow afternoon, my time (AEST)……which reminds me…..

this month’s prize is one metre of Whisperweft and some easy thread needles……the perfect way to stitch up a storm. (I DID manage to do some prize shopping in Townsville after all!)

So pleased he is mending so well. Hopefully none of his naughtiness will set him back too far- though a little nudge might slow him down enough to follow doctor orders- maybe :)

Oh those threads are stitching up so lovely, must keep a look out for that Mistletoe one :)

Thanks for a lovely Friday get-together :)

Glad to see your FIL up and about so quickly Wendy. Am very intrigued to see your Christmas designs as I love, love, love Christmas! How do you find Cottage Garden Threads to stitch with? Cheers, Tracy

Glad your FIL is doing so well and I hope it continues! He is very naughty...if he doesn't want blood clots, he really should wear the compression stockings (I know they are not comfortable, but they can save his life!). Boys, no matter how old they are, definitely can be a trial, but we still love them!

Peg - Happy In Quilting said...

Oh my...that is amazing so pleased he is doing well Wendy...yummy threads

desertskyquilts said...

I believe the answer to your question is no, men never grow up. =) I'm so glad he's doing so well. Does he have someone staying with him? I guess I'm much more of a baby than he is because all I did was fall on my side and it still hurts months later and I baby it, and there he is bending over! Love your teasers. That J is speaking to me!

Lin said...

So pleased that Dad is doing well despite the naughtiness! Glad you got some sewing done too. I am off to write my FNSI report - it's been a busy weekend. xx

Cheryll said...

Perfect news to start FNSI..a healthy DaD.
Love the blurry look of xmas projects for us! :)

Diane-crewe said...

glad you managed a bit of sewing xx PARENTS!! what can you do with them! At least with kids you can MAKE them behave xx Hope he goes on OK x

Tammy said...

What good news he ddin;t have to stay as long as they thought. He sounds like a tough man. Probably takes a lot to keep him down. Boys never grow up....Allways are high maintenance regardless the age

Heather S said...

While medicine is great, it's people who are amazing when they recover so well!
I need to visit and SEE what you are stitching as it looks gorgeous. Love the threads.

Pinnylea Creations said...

You wouldn't want him any other way.... Just can't keep a good man down!
I think some of his naughtiness has rubbed off on you ... teaser. Hope we don't have to wait to long to see the end results xx
