Name and Claim

2 weeks, 14 days, no stomach meds from tomorrow morning - the countdown to my surgery has really started.

I have picked these 3 projects to give the most attention through these 14 days.
The Eeyore cross stitch embroidery is one DD1 abandoned years back. I have finished her other abandoned embroideries - Piglet, Winnie the Pooh, and together with a couple of mini flowers she has finished herself I will make her a cushion.
Her stalling point is when she counts wrong and with 4x4 cross stitches to 1/4" that is easily done. I do not care to correct her mistakes. I just work around them and nobody can tell, not even her :-)

The red and white block is a Nearly Insane block. My goal for January is 15 blocks and 15 blocks it will be.
My Christmas coloured Dear Jane blocks gets a break until later this spring when I will be doing them again for myself.

The applique block is for week #3. These blocks are addictive, but I am not sure if I want to make all 50 - time will tell.


  1. Hi Hanne! The countdown is on! I will be sending you good thoughts and crossing all of my extremities!
    and that NI quilt is stunning!

  2. Good choice of projects for the next two weeks. I'm still sending positive thoughts your way.

  3. You've chosen some lovely projects to keep you busy. I love the Nearly Insane blocks, I'm going to resist making that quilt for the time being. I will be thinking of you in the lead up to your surgery. I have a good feeling about it.

  4. You are making good use of your last two weeks before surgery. I've been keeping you in my thoughts and prayers daily so you are in the best health possible for the procedure.

  5. Hanne: Good luck! I've been wondering about your surgery but have had no time to read blogs. I'll also be sending good thoughts your way.

    Keep us posted, ok?

    Judy L.

  6. I'm holding my thumbs for your surgery and recovery.

    Lovely blocks

    I will be thinking of you. You be strong and keep on stitching. You do a lot of nice woork. Love your litle baby boy gift.

  8. Love that red and white block. Thinking of you.

  9. Your Nearly Insane is going to be stunning........

    You have enough to keep you occupied while you wait. The time will go so fast and the outcome will be better than you can imagine.

    Did you know that I am also in the block a week challenge with May and the others? I just entered but I know I can get on track soon.

  10. Hope your symptoms off the meds aren't as bad as you are expecting - and hope the waiting time goes faster than you hope!

  11. I hope you will do allright now without your med. I cross my fingers for you. It's good you keep your mind occupied with sewing now. If you want to talk just give me a call.
    A big hug from me. You'll do it girl!!!!

    I have started applique on the same AD block as you now :)

  12. I found your blog through May Britt. I've loved looking at all your projects - you do such beautiful work. Good luck with your surgery.

  13. I really love that nearly insane block!
