First timers...................

Happy New Year!

My year has started with me performing nursing duties to my hubbie. He has shingles. The left side of his head is a no go zone. There is no exact timetable for its course, apparently but the sooner it has moved on the better. Like most men, he is not a good patient and I admit my patience is shorter the 'more mature' I get. Thank goodness for my sewing room and ladies blogs.

This is the gift I sent to Michelle at Allthingsrusty in Chookys SSCS. The embroidery pattern is a Cheryl Seslar design.




I love the look of Dresden Plates. I found a tutorial to make a template and 'had a go'. Its is 12inch square and is haning on my mini stand. This is also my first attempt at stipling using my machine. Please note, no quilting police allowed. An interesting process and fun.


Back to the patient....

Oh no! Poor Brian and poor nurse Sharyn. Shingles are so painful. Lovely projects Sharyn. Glad your stitching and blogging are giving you a break. I hope Brian gets well quickly xx

Pain is always difficult. I feel for you both. Love the bag and the Dresden plates. The quilting looks great. I have only tried swirly finishes. I like your pointy look.

Your poor hubby and I can empathize with you. Here's hoping he has a speedy recovery. Your tote bag is adorable.

Hope your husband gets better soon. Shingles are awful and can be really painful. Men are never good patients which completely excuses your lack of patience. LOVE your Dresden and your stippling looks fabulous !
