Thank you so much for all the lovely comments on last weeks blog (and also over at my other blog the BOGOF blog).
I really enjoyed reading what everyone had been up to over at Handmade Monday and tried to comment on as many as I could.
Knitnrun4sanity - thanks ever so much for the award you gave me. It was such a surprise. I tried several times to leave comments on your blog but for some reason the hospitals wi-fi wouldn't let me.
I can now though because I'm back home !!!!! Originally the Prof had estimated that I'd be in for about two weeks. However I made such good progress that he was happy for me to go home yesterday.
Normally when a patient has a hip replacement they're pretty much immobile for six weeks (for fear of dislocating the new joint). In my case it's going to be at least four months as the Prof wants to make sure that everything is completely healed before I'm allowed to put any weight on my leg.
Thankfully I have more than enough to keep me occupied: plenty of knitting, hand quilting, needlepoint, cross stitching, reading. I will miss my sewing - I'm banned from my workroom - but it'll be nice to do other things instead.
One of which is a tiger cub I'm cross stitching. Here's what it'll look like when it's finished.
This is where I'm up to at the moment
Have a great week.
PS why not pop over to Handmade Monday to see what other fellow craft bloggers have been up to.
