Gone Quilting

by Kate on November 23, 2011

All hands on deck at Chez One Flew Over.

Apart from quilting the capsule quilts…husbando came off his bike and broke both his collar bone and shoulder blade.

Needless to say, we have had better weeks.

Ouch! My husband & I are both keen cyclists who have had our share of ‘accidents’, I know a little of what you are all going through! I hope he mends well and soon! I love the aqua and gold quilt!

(no other words but there’s a squinty, wincy, sympathy-type look on my face and for some reason I felt the need to cross my legs even though he only hurt the bits up top).

Oh no….collar bones are nasty. They seem like they’re straightforward because they’re not in plaster but you have to be so careful that they knit properly. I broke mine in grade 4 and I’m paying the price now! Hope he feels better soon.

Sending healing thoughts! Broken bones need calcium so pour on the ice cream, frozen yogurt and cheesecake. Or broccoli, if he doesn’t care for dairy. :-)

Oh no Kate! I hope he’s comfortable! I swear by Arnica if you can get some… my brother broke his back in 1999 and they told him his recovery would take 3 months… 8 weeks and he was up moving around. My mum made him take arnica tablets each day :)
Quilts are looking fabulous though :) Oh! And I am coming to Sydney on Monday for work! Only overnight mind you!

i hope he feels better soon. broken bones are no fun, especially when you are older… as in not a child or teenager.

Oh no, that’s not good at all (the collarbone I mean!)
Your quilts are looking divine. Hope the Mr heals quickly.

Poor JJ & poor nurse Kate too.

The quilts are looking wonderful though. Hope you get a bit of binding time in soon. x

I love the blue quilt. So sorry for your husband! There’s nothing worse, I think, than a sick or broken husband.

hello, poor love! Hope healing gets under way soon. After that we’d love you guys to take a trip down to the Nation’s Great Roundabout for a visit. I’ve also got some blue glasswear I’d like to pass on. xx
PS quits look magnif!
