We Interrupt This Blog...

For an emergency trip to visit my mother. Mom tripped and fell over the weekend, and some minor surgery is in the works for tomorrow (no, nothing major -- she broke her nose). So, I'm heading out on a plane tonight to hang out with Mom and give some TLC. Lovely part is I get to spend Valentine's Day with one of my favorite people -- down side? I have to miss Valentine's day with my other two favorite people :0(.

Thanks to everyone who has responded to my little disaster -- just to let you know, the second wash didn't do much (a bit lighter) but also brought out another spot where bleeding was going to be a problem. I did try a bit of a seam treatment -- but, um, it didn't look great so I pulled it out. So, final decision? It's not THAT bad -- and it will be going to my partner as is. Hopefully today (if I can get my butt in gear and get packed, etc.). It may be packaged up today and left for my hubby to mail out tomorrow. I'll try and get a picture to share later.

Until then -- I have about 3 hours to pack, get some things done around the house, and get ready to make it to O'Hare. I'll be back next Sunday, so I'll have tons of catching up to do -- Later!

Sorry about your Mum, but kind of nice to have an excuse to fly out and see her.
What a pain about the bleeding fabric...I hate that!! It looks so nice, I am sure your partner will cope...send some chocolate with it!
The book reviews were good...and as usual i love those aprons!
Make sure your rest a bit on your 'holiday', sounds like the bug knocked you around, Tracey

When I read the first few lines of your post I thought "Oh no! Hip!" Glad you will get to spend some time with your Mum and hope when you get back there may be a small package waiting for you.

Hope your mom is better soon. As for the quilt - I'm sure your partner will like it. If by some chance it's me (mine is late; Margaret tells me it's not lost in the post; you are running late - it could be!), I guarantee I will like it despite a little bleeding.

Nan said...

Oh dear, Angela! Your poor mama! I hope she's doing okay. She will definitely feel better with you there, that's for sure! This way you can celebrate 2 Valentine's Days! Take care of yourself - I'm sending good thoughts to you and your mom!

Sorry about your Mom, but you will get to have a lovely visit with her.

About your swap, I wonder what it would have looked like if you had washed it with the fabric that bled. Would you have had a bit of tye dye look to it?

It's still lovely as is!

I hope your Mom is a quick healer. Nothing like the loving care that only a daughter can provide to escalate the process. Please keep us posted.
