Stitching

I had a stitching kind of weekend and it's been a stitching week so far too! A couple of weeks ago I went with Miss 23 to a hospital appointment where we had to wait... and wait... and wait. (Sometimes it's like that!) For some strange reason I didn't have any stitching with me and felt sad that I had lost such a wonderful opportunity to stitch, so I came home and prepared a Rosalie Quinlan Block of the Month to stitch next time! Well, next time was last Friday. Mr 15 was helping me prepare pumpkin soup when the knife slipped and some of his finger got chopped off. (Not very much finger thank goodness) I took a look at the piece of finger in his hand and realised that we needed a hospital, not a bandaid. In the panic to get out of the house I left the stitching home! His finger required surgery (a skingraft) and an overnight stay so there was plenty of opportunity for stitching! I finished the stitchery today and will be preparing another one for more stitching tonight. I loooooooooooooooove to stitch!

Ouch! He must've taken off a pretty good chunk!
Gorgeous stitchery. Perhaps you should put an emergency one in the glovebox, and then pray that you never have to stitch it!!

Poor Mr15 - what bad luck - hope he is healing! Always be prepared - so they say!

was thinking the same as JO..maybe you should keep a kit in the car just for when you have some time up your sleeve...
Hope mr.15 is healing well & hasn't deterred him from cooking..

Ow,poor son. Hopefully son and daughter are okay or getting there. Your stitchery is lovely Kris. Thats why I am enjoying my Leanne's House BOM as I can prepare the blocks and carry them for stitching. I don't think you will forget again, I can visualise there has been one put into your bag already!
