I don't have fireflies in my garden - which is a shame... only cats, bees, a dog and the odd dragonfly!! So please settle down with a cuppa, put your feet up and enjoy!

May WIP Update....

Two posts in one day.... wow!  What has happened... well.. I am off work sick again - that's what happened!!

You know the old saying it never rains but it pours - well I think that is me at the moment!

I spent all of last Saturday and half of Sunday in the Emergency Department of our local hospital in the most agonising pain with my gallbladder!  They also hooked me up to a potassium drip for over 9 hrs as my potassium levels were really low.... I couldn't stitch til Saturday night when they unhooked me and then I didn't get much done as I wasn't feeling too flash!  Then on Sunday morning the hospital staff went into a spin as my liver levels had gone on a 24hr skyrocket ride!!  I think I was very lucky that they let me go home at all...

I go back to the Doctor tomorrow afternoon to check on what yesterday's ultrasound scan showed - although the Radiographer did tell me she could see a gallstone.... :o(

So I have been at home all week recovering and praying that the gallstone doesn't get stuck again.   Every twinge I get in my back/chest is freaking me out at the moment....

So while I worry about work.... and my health... I have managed to spend a bit more time stitching that I would normally get done during the week!

WIP updates.....

These three are all part of my May starts for the Stitch Maynia SAL and hopefully before the end of May I will have at least one of them finished!

That's it for today... I am now going to go back to my couch and blanket for puppy cuddles and lots of afternoon stitching!

Til next time... happy stitching!
Hugs xx


  1. I'm sorry that you aren't feeling well. I have been operated once for kidney stones once in 2011. It's being long since i got a checkup done that last few days I couldn't sleep thinking that every pinch in the body is bcoz of the stones.
    I hope you get some comfort out of stitching.

  2. I can sympathise with the gall bladder problems
    Been there done that
    Good luck

  3. Oh Noni, I am so sorry to read of this. I am praying for you dear.

  4. Sorry to hear you might have a gallstone, I've been checked for those too, no fun. Great stitching!

  5. OH my, Leonie, how awful that you have been in such pain. I just hope that you will feel better soon and that something can be done to improve your health.
    Stitching on these lovely pieces is certainly a little consolation. At least I hope so.
