200 posts (101)

Debi at Quilting with Debi has just reached 100 posts and is having a give-away to celebrate. She's much more organised than I am and has already decided what the prize will be, so go on over and have a look (don't comment though as it will lessen my chances!)

I haven't done much sewing today, as I had another eye clinic appointment, and those drops they put in leave me with blurred vision for hours, but I have managed to finish the little stitcheries I've been doing and stitched them to the patches. So, with any luck, my Olympic quilt will be done by the end of the Olympics. 

I forgot to write about my daft son. Number 1 Son has always been accident prone and a frightful dare devil, getting into all sorts of scrapes when he was a youngster. He's 27 now, but on Saturday evening went to a party where they had a bouncy castle. Of course he went on it, and of course he was the one who ended up having to go to hospital for 5 stitches in his head, following a collision. All the girls had hysterics apparently, because of the amount of blood. Typical.

Poor son...did they have to cut away much hair to sew him back up?

Have a great week.

Oh my! Poor Oliver. I suppose the mishaps don't end when they get bigger. I'm glad it was nothing too serious.

Love your red/white 'I love to sew" a the top...sorry to hear about your #1 son...it is always hard on mom...at least for the first moments....

Oh my Amanda! I have a "daft" son, too. He broke both arms (one at a time) before he was 6 years old. Broke fingers and toes and had stitches on his arm and chin....etc.

And now he's a firefighter. Arrrghhh!
I wonder if you've got as many gray hairs as I do.

Five stitches sounds rather ouchy! I have to ask -- what is a bouncy castle?

Tanya said...

Oh dear. Your poor son. I didn't know they stayed accident prone even to 27! Boys have enough accidents without even being accident prone. Take good care of him!

Happy stitching!!!
