Life Goes On

Here I am nearly a week post operation and I am still in the hospital. I am recovering well from the operation apart from the fact that somehow a nerve in my right leg was affected which has meant I can't walk and will need rehabilitation. It is not so easy to find a rehab bed so meanwhile I am still in the Royal Women's Hospital.The nursing staff are lovely and work so hard to make all patients comfortable. The view from my window is pretty good and I can keep an eye on those builders on the building site across the road and make sure they are keeping their nose to the grindstone and I can watch the incoming weather. I feel well and will have biopsy results later today. So trying to keep busy awaiting those.


To try and keep busy I have decided to run another on-line  Traveller's Blanket Class which will start on 1 November. I am working on one myself- which  is turning into a bit of a manifesto in keeping to the  creating/art making state of mind whilst I recover. Occasionally I refer to what is happening but mostly  I find myself telling myself to stay alert, to "see", to draw from within and to just stitch. Of course there are many other reasons to make traveller's blankets, as in, recording journeys actually made, creating a memento of family memories, recording a favourite place. There are so many ways to stitch a journey. We are not all wordy people, and more and more I am finding that stitching is expressive of what is within and as I have watched people make their own blankets in various classes each is so different and so must more than simply recording.

If you would like to join please message me. The cost is $75 and I set up a private Facebook group for discussion and sharing your stories and work.

Fingers crossed for the biopsy results.

Journeys - they are what life is all about, I've found.

Good luck with it all.
