First things first... My husband's surgery went better than expected. He was out of the operating room in an hour, wide awake and joking around. I, however, seemed to have gotten the raw end of the deal: while they were preparing him for surgery, they were hooking him up to an IV drip. And bless those ladies, they were really good with the needle and caused him a minimum of pain doing it. What no one in the room realized was how severe my reaction is to seeing needles sliding into skin. I'd even forgotten this - the last time I had a reaction was 13 years ago!
So anyway, the ladies are putting the IV into his arm, and next thing I know I'm on the floor surrounded by ten nurses. I'd fainted. Clear off my chair, slamming my head into the tiled floor. To say that I was the laughing stock of the day is an understatement. But hey, at least I lightened the mood a little!
My husband was discharged two hours after the surgery, so I did have the rest of the day to finish up the multicolored biscornu I'd stitched the other day. Here it is:
I decided to use purple thread to stitch it closed, just for a change. I put a bright yellow star button on top and a plain orange button on the bottom, using matching thread for each. But it's so small!
That's enough of the biscornus for a while, I think. I've made three in a row and I'm starting to miss "normal" stitching, if you know what I mean.
In other news: I won Kaye's Traveling Pattern draw! Woohoo! This is the cutest Little House Needleworks design, and I can't wait to stitch it up.
