For those of you who read my blog and are also friends with Shirley from Shirley's Twisted Threads it is time to give you a heads up on her whereabouts.
(SHIRLEY RELAXING IN HER NEW ABODE)
Shirley is currently in an Intensive Care Unit in hospital. We managed to get her settled into her new home, did a bit of fun shopping as she showed on her blog and then - Whammy! - last Friday she suffered a heart attack (atrial fibrillation). Fortunately, her new unit is just a short distance to the hospital and she received emergency life saving treatment and was discharged on the following Monday. Alas her 'freedom' was short lived, and she was back into hospital with an infection early hours of Tuesday morning, treated with antibiotic and released once more. Then.....it doesn't stop there......she was called up by the hospital next day to come back for further tests as she had 'bacteria in her blood'. So, she has today been transferred to a private hospital and will be there for approx 2 weeks to clear this very bad infection. Bad luck seems to be following Shirley at the moment, but her spirits are high and she still has her wonderful sense of humour! Pray she will be well soon and back doing her wonderful stitching.

This is the scrap quilt I made for the Flood Relief community quilting at Toowoomba Quilters Club. There was a whole bunch of 4" squares which had been donated to our fabric cupboard so I just joined them up in a nine patch in various colourways. The scrap quilts the ladies are making are just amazing. Pop over to their blog and have a goosey gander. www.toowoombaquiltersclub.blogspot.com
