Hello all fellow WOYWWers.  Here we are at another Wednesday full of fun time world snooping.  If you'd like to find out more then please pop over to Julia's at Stamping Ground and check out the links there that will explain all.

Most of you will know that we have had an anxious week with our eldest daughter Michelle in hospital.  She was admitted to hospital last Tuesday morning in the early hours with severe abdominal pain and it took them til Wednesday lunchtime before she finally had a laparoscopy to see what the problem was....and then an appendicectomy for an appendix close on the point of rupturing.  She was sent home from hospital on Friday afternoon following her surgery but was rushed back in early hours on Saturday morning by ambulance when she passed out from the pain.  She has had a pretty rough time of it bless her but thankfully was discharged again yesterday morning....here's to a good steady recovery now Shell....we have all missed you especially your gorgeous little twinnie munchkins.

As you can imagine I've not done much crafting [and probably won't for a week or two while helping out] so I'm sharing a pic of the craft fair from last Saturday. 


As you can see I managed to cover a table with all the things I'd made from all the wonderful gifted fabric and can proudly announce that I managed to raise a wonderful £130 for our local hospice.  It's easy to encourage people to buy raffle tickets for such a great cause and very many happily bought tickets for the quilt that I managed to get finished in time.

Thanks for calling by today.  Leave me a little message to let me know you've called and I will do my best to pop over to yours for a catch up when I can but it may take me a day or so this week.

I hope your daughter is well on the mend, what a dreadful time - my boss's mother had a ruptured appendix (at 86!) a few weeks ago and is still in hospital. Well done on raising such a magnificent amount of money, I bet your items sold like hot cakes. take care, Helen 3xx

Sorry to hear about your daughter,hope she recovery quickly. Well done on your craft fair.

Neet said...

Oh Annie, sorry, I did not know about Shell. What a terrible time for her and you all. The appendix is a useless thing and why we have them is a mystery but to cause so much trouble. I just hope she is alright now and can recover from all that pain.
Congrats on the handicraft stall you had, well done you.
Now just take care
Hugs, Neet 29 xx

Phew! Glad it all turned out well with Shell, and that she's on the mend. Well done on a successful craft sale, too. It was great that you had enough for a table. Love, Chris # 23

Lisca Meijer said...

Oh dear, what a stressful week you've had. I'm glad your daughter is on the mend!
Your table at the fair looks magnificent. Raising money for the hospice is a great cause. I was a hospice nurse for 22 years (or did I tell you this before? If so, sorry)
Thank you for letting me peep over your shoulder.
Have a good week.

The stall looks great. All the best to Michelle, hope she is on her feet again soon.

Hi Annie, well done on managing to raise such a lovely sum for the hospice ... all that hard work certainly paid off. I've not been able to participate in WOYWW this week but just had to pop in to see what you've been up to anyway :) Hugs, Elizabeth xx

Hi Annie,

Congratulations on raising so much for a very good cause! I imagine your mind was busy with other things (so glad her appendix didn't burst). I can't imagine having pain so bad that it makes you faint!

Glad she's home and doing better.

Happy belated WOYWW
Peace, Kay (66)
