a month has gone by since I last posted (sounds like the start of a confession). Thank you everyone for your emails and kind comments on my previous post, I haven't been spending too much time on the internet lately so I have quite a lot of catching up on blog reading to do over the next few days.

The Mister's knee replacement went well, although I think his expectations of a quick recovery were a bit too optimistic, slow and steady is the best way for him to progress.   I had planned to spend a bit of time sewing while the Mister was in hospital but with trips to the hospital and work, I found I was too tired to do much at all, although I did manage to finish off a quilt for my mother.

My sister and I gave my sewing room a much needed tidy-up

Cody helped to test the quilt for snuggliness
