Fun and games....


Hello friends... I hope you all had a wonderful New Year?? 

You will never be live the one I have had! Ha ha

I won't bore you all with all the details! But just a little! Oh and good news too!!

New Year's Eve I! 
The view from my hospital bed!

Yes unfortunately as some of you know I tried so very very hard to stay out of hospital all over Christmas... Come New Year's Eve and off I went! My doctor admitted me to have tests done...a lot of tests I might add!! Bloods, liver, kidneys, pancreas.... X Rays... And the good news is that they have found out what is wrong with me! Finally!! I have a rather large blockage in my colon... This apparently is what has been making me poorly.  Naturally I have to have more tests, but they can be done as an out patient.... Which I am very happy about!! See what bother my knee has caused me!! Sooner I am fixed the better!!

Poor me!!

I am resting back home now...and thrilled to of been discharged so quickly!! 

I have been stitching...ha ha not in the hospital, back home! 

Here is where I left it....remember....

I was deciding which flower to start with...

It's just so pretty to stitch, loving it!!

Then this one was finished... Anyone know what the flower is? Just curious :)

On with the stitching!! 

Happy happy new year to all of you :) 

Big smiles :) 


  1. Oh my dear sending you big hugs and lots of best wishes...
    Great stitching.
    Happy new year
    Love you x

  2. Sorry for the hospital stay but at least they have some clues to your problem. Glad you are home and I hope the New Year brings some health results for you.

  3. Oh Jacquie what a way to round off the year! I hope this is the beginning if the end for your health problems.
    I would have said forget-me-not for the flower but I think that's the birth flower for February! It's lovely anyway.

  4. So glad you are back home! I am praying the doctors have answers AND solutions for you this time!
    Happy New Year!

  5. Good grief charlie brown ... don't drop in for a few days and look what happens ... at least they have found the cause and now 2016 can start to be the year of fixing you ... lovely stitching and hmmmm not sure on the flower to be honest .... take care and will squeak again soon :) love mouse xxxxx

  6. Glad to see you getting your money's worth out of the NHS! Hopefully that will be the last visit for a while.
    The flowers look like violas to me but do they have them on the prairie? Maybe you should ask Gracie, she lives in Arizona!

  7. I found this, could it be a New England Aster?

  8. Jacquie, I wish you many, many health !!!
    The cause is already known, it is a good start!
    I send sweet greetings!
