The kitchen trolley might be good for the kitchen, but when it comes to having a 12 inch rotation cutting board on it,, or the ironing protective mat, there are faults galore. Too narrow, too short, handles get in the way, and even with the legs adjusted to the full height, too short!!!
But it can fit in the “ Laundry Day” quilt, this is as far as I have managed this weekend. The grass needs some embellishment, a small shrub at the right hand side, where the pathway didn’t angle out, and the wonky chimney needs reinforcing after the earthquake. Likewise the roof will have huge “ Galvanised Nu-Fix roofing nails” ( Bernina pattern # 162) to keep it firm again. And the clothesline rope arrived, from the LQS.!!! There had been flooding and liquefaction as well, that is the blue wavy lines on the road!!
And before I went to have some pretty photos taken with the MRI scanner, the local quilt shop had a necessary visit. Some lovely golden yellows, a few more greens, and two swirly paler batiks, just in case I want to change the background again in the ‘Freefall quilt along” which you can see right here at this link,
After all, every girl needs to have choices.
The ladies at Radiology were so kind, caring, and made sure I was as comfortable as I could be, my legs were both supported by a cradle? and the right one had another on top, probably with coils in it. Ear plugs, and headphones, as they talked to me all the way along. And a squeezy hand piece, in case I needed help!!! Lots of noises, a bit like an orchestra tuning up.The only really uncomfortable part was the weighted bag below my knee to keep that leg steady, but a body wriggle as they suggested helped.
Photo courtesy of the internet, I could not take my crutches inside, but a lovely lady either side gave all the support needed, and I thankfully answered all the questions with NO, for Bullets, shrapnel, body piercings, eyelid springs??? metal anywhere, and more… and then came the height measurement. I have shrunk from my earlier days!!! At least 1.25 inches!!! Horror.
Next week I will get the results and find the answers.
Our son-in-law’s Dad passed away on Sunday morning , at home, after a long illness. Russell Brown was a wonderful man, so respected and admired in the Otago community and will be so sadly missed by Ann, their family, grandies, friends and relations. His farewell is tomorrow, and we will be there in our thoughts.Our love to them all , and specially to Ralph and Kaz.
Quotation of the day, as I remember ,and say goodbye to Russell .
Godspeed, dear friend.
A limb has fallen from the family tree, that says,
Grieve not for me,
Remember the best times, the laughter, the song,
The good life I lived while I was strong.
Greetings from Jean.
