My border batik fabrics have been taken out, looked at, and put at the side of the Wiggle me quilt.I am still not sure about the new fern one, but the darker blue mottled one is definitely the very outer edge
A bit windy here today, after overnight rain.
Our motel is almost directly across the road from Wellington Regional Hospital, and the Rescue Helicopter lands on the top landing area often. It goes overhead at all hours. There will be many families who are so very thankful for this wonderful life-saving service.
You can see the wind sock at the very right hand side, and I could hear the rotors a long time before the chopper was visible. Then it turned and flew almost directly overhead, as I was on the footpath.
Julie, at My Quilt Diary, I thought of you, as one time you cycled down the road to hang your quilt on a fence for the photos. I walked out the door, and here was a suitable fence, at the side of where the cars park.
Breaking news, Hugh has been discharged, 2 days post-surgery!!! We will travel home tomorrow. I have not done much that was on “ The List”, but with batiks, and today a marvellous new “Samsung Smart Phone” a family and friend birthday gift, I am happy.Yesterday when I walked out to the front door after visiting, I met a lady who was there with her husband on Monday morning, there were a lot of people in the pre-surgery admission room. We went back inside and talked. How can an instant friendship be there, we hugged, had tears, of relief and togetherness, and shared a bond .I think of them both as they face the future, with hope, faith, and a little uncertainty.
Again, you have all kept me in your hearts and thoughts, and this has been in my mind these days. We have seen others in dire situations, wives here alone, men facing surgery complications, young children in wheelchairs going up in the lift, maybe to the theatre floor.
Quotation of the day from Adam Lindsay Gordon
Life is mostly froth and bubble,
Two things stand like stone,
Kindness in another's trouble,
Courage in your own.
