The Wayward Transparency blocks are together, I have added a border of the pale mauve, and it will wait to be quilted, “ Join the queue”I said.
This was another wonderful design from Yvonne at
and it was so apt that after I arranged the flimsy outdoors, a plane flew overhead. It all seemed to be just right. There have been some fantastic choices for the fabrics, the quilting has left me in total awe, and many thanks must go again to Yvonne, for this QAL, the suggestions, the superb pattern that all went together like a dream.Points matched, so did seams,and this will be a family gift when finished.
You will need to look at this with very good eyes, no tele lens, and it was so high by the time it cleared the clouds.But the plane is there, a little to the right of the arrow head.
We have had some rain,some very hot days, for us 34.4 Celsius is a scorcher. Then some wind, and I found the littlest nest of all. Made with such care, lined with white fluff from the poplar trees, and the builder had carted that a fair way , at least 100 metres,I marvel at the workmanship.
I propped it in a tiny shrub, and have kept it as a reminder that in the whole world, there are designers and builders of all types, everywhere.
On Sunday, I had a short holiday, another ambulance trip at 2.30 a.m. after angina pain did not ease up with my medication. I am so thankful for our ladies and men who come at all hours, arrange to have another more advanced paramedic meet us half way, more medication, the “jungle juice” stuff!! After some hours on the most uncomfortable narrow bed of all times, doctors finally arrived, blood tests done, troponin levels in both tests were negative, and I am scheduled for a Myoscan, where a small amount of a radionuclide is injected and this is taken up into the heart muscle.After exercise, ( can you see me on that treadmill)…pictures are taken with a gamma camera, that will show, at rest, what areas have not taken up the dye.
Or they might do this the other way around, photos first??
Then off I go to have a NO COFFEE lunch. Then another set of photos, to see if my heart absorbs the dye after some rest.
The best, it will show something is not right, the worst, no COFFEE the day before or on the day. And if they find what they think they will, a trip to Wellington for an angiogram and maybe stents.
I am optimistic,and so thankful for all the care and fast action.
Stress, rushing, hard work,and walking fast are all out for a while.Thank goodness the firewood is all done.

be thoughtful, be genuine,
but most of all, be thankful”
