Hand Work In The Hospital

My husband is in the hospital this week with a face infection.  This is a man that is never sick and never misses work.  Apparently, he had about 6 ingrown hairs on his chin from shaving too close.
He pulled the hairs out and infection set in.  Friday night he had a fat lip when he came home from work.  We went out for our usual Friday night pizza date and when leaving the Pizza Cellar, Rod got a bad case of the chills.  We went straight home, took his temp and wrapped him up in a quilt and afghan.  Saturday, we saw the doctor at a prompt care facility and started antibiotics.  Sunday morning, Rod asked me to take him to the emergency room.

Below is a picture of Indy, Rod's Australian Shepherd, trying to comfort him in the lazy boy chair.

So we are in the hospital and I have been working on hand work.  I am working on The Christmas Wish Quilt by Red Brolly (www.redbrolly.com).

This was a free pattern offered last fall and I am finally getting around to tracing a few designs so that I can carry it with me.  I don't have a Christmas quilt to hang on the wall and so this is my motivation to finish it for Christmas 2013.  Mmmm....like I have nothing else to do, right?

Yours in quilting,

  1. Rod isn't looking very "comforted". Poor guy, tell him I'm thinking of him and hope he can come home soon. Hugs and love to you both.
