And now he's back home; a bit sore but given everything he's gone through he's surprisingly alert and managing the pain well. We grumbled a bit about him being bumped off the surgery list on Sunday by some emergencies, but given that it was all done in the public system (i.e completely free) and he was looked after so well the whole time, we feel pretty happy with his treatment and very lucky about where we live.
I took this quilt over to NZ in the suitcase of quilts that I left with the whanau - I blogged about the piecing but never showed a picture of the finished product. So here it is! I followed the circles with big stitch and it's a very soft finish. So now it's sitting in Dad's cupboard rather than mine. Is this progress?
