In Which Clare Pays a Visit to the Urgence

What was the day and date yesterday?

Got up had cuppa. Went outside to inspect plants and plan the day. Walked down the porch steps. Didn't see lump of concrete at the bottom. Turned ankle. Fell a*** over t** and heard ankle crack!

The Old One, comme d'hab, was a bit slow up on the uptake, but we got into Urgence at about 12.30. Yup - broken! Up to the knee in plaster for 6 weeks. It can't be too bad a break as just plaster and not pinned and one of those light casts too. We were in there for 1 1/2 hours from start to finish, might have been less. Seen immediately. Dr spoke perfect English and a perfect gentleman! On the other hand, the guy who did the plaster was drop dead gorgeous. I just sat there and gawped.

Home with enough anti blood clotting stuff to fill a pharmacie and another X-Ray in 3 weeks.

In the meantime, I've got enough quilting projects to keep me occupied. I reckon by the end of the 6 weeks I should have 2 quilts finished and if I run out of projects I can always pick up Ab Fab.

I just hope The Old One doesn't run over the plants when he mows, can water the plants and cook!

At least it's summer and I can wear shorts!

I've joined the Liberated Quilter's Online Round Robin. The first task is to make up the centre block.

I have decided to use an orphan block which I received in the big box of goodies a couple of weeks ago.

You all know what a sucker I am for blue and white.

I'll be interested to see what Nancie and June come up with for the next round.

More soon.

Oh My poor thing...sounds painful!! Hope it heals up quick and you are back to dancing in no time!

Juliann said...

So sorry to hear your story. But I do love that piece you are stitching - threads are really tugging at me right now. Be well

Chris Daly said...

Heal quickly and get lots of sewing in while you can!

Poor you Clare - but on a lighter note aren't you going to have a tan line of note once that plaster comes off :D

I am so glad I didn't know it was Friday the 13th yesterday and was able to treat it as an ordinary day. So sorry about your mishap, and am glad it wasn't your quilting foot.

Connie said...

Oh my! Do take care!!!

So sorry about your accident, Clare! You seem to have a great attitude about it. And, Shasta, that "quilting foot" comment made me laugh! Thanks for directing us to the Liberated Round Robin blog. It looks like so much fun. I've never done anything like that online before, but think I'll head back to my stash and see if I have something to start with! Looking forward to seeing what you come up with along the way...
