Didn't go as we expected...

Hubby's surgery didn't happen.
He was on the operating table when he had "heart issues".
The heart monitor went crazy and everything came to a stop.
All of his pre-op testing was fine so this was a total surprise.
Had to see a cardiologist and have tests run.
As it turned out Dr feels it was an anxiety attack.  
He is rescheduled for hip surgery on September 10th.
We'll try again.......

I did get some stitching done while waiting.
Working on  Red Work flour sack tea towels.
Looking at it now, I think I should have made the bow on the puppy red.
Not sure if I will change it.....
I found this cute Prairie Point edging idea on Pinterest.

It's beginning to feel like Fall with cooler mornings.
Great sleeping weather.
I love Fall, the smell of pumpkin bread baking, cinnamon sticks, cozy quilts....
if Winter didn't follow, life would be perfect.

 Hope all is well in your world!

Hospitals are the pits

Lord knows, I know that first hand!
But it's Hubby's turn this time.
On Thursday he is scheduled to have his right hip replaced. 
It's been a crazy week with pre-op appointments etc.
Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.
I have a beautiful Oriental customer quilt on my machine.
I was hoping to have it finished to show you this week. got in the way.
Here's my hand stitching and book ready for the
 hospital waiting game.

I'll leave you with a Pinterest Funny.
Ain't it the truth!
