..Hi all, It's been a long time since I had time to post on here and even longer since I have had time to make any cards :(
At the start of last month my mum suffered a stroke. Initially we didn't think it was going to be to bad but then a few hrs after she was admitted to hospital she suffered a big heart attack then she developed a pneumonia. It was touch and go there for a while and the doctors gave us the talk about not resuscitating etc . After 2 days she had made a massive improvement with regard to the heart attack/pneumonia and I think she surprised the doctors :) :). The stroke itself has affected her left side and although she is regaining small movements there hasn't been that much progress so far as she has had a couple of infections since being in there and also developed a blood clot on her lung so up until the last few days she hasn't been receiving much physio. At the moment as well as going in for normal visiting myself and my step dad are trying to go in for atleast one meal time a day each as lets just say the care isn't all that good and it is very worrying. I could go on all day about that so I best not start!
Anyhow I have had precious little time to do anything other than the usual work/chores/and visit mum. I mostly have to go on the bus and that is 2 buses both around 30 mins travel so I have been taking a bit of crochet with me. I decided to make something small as it would be easier to do on the bus so I made a start on this little guy.
I just completed him this evening and I am going to take him in to mum to keep her company.
I just need a name ..any suggestions??
The pattern is free from the lovely Emma HERE
I wish I could do a spot of cardmaking on the bus but can you imagine the looks I'd get carrying a huge guillotine on there lol
Thanks for listening to my waffle
