Life's Ups and Downs

Been absent for a while ........... had two nasty falls; first time I fell over in the mud due to all the rain and flooding in Somerset. Second time, I fell over in the High Street of Yeovil, again because of the rain and slippery footpaths. Each time I had one leg out in front of me and the other bent up, under and sort of behind. Luckily the second time two young shop assistants came and helped me up. I was out shopping with my husband but he was in a different place to me when I fell; thank goodness for mobile phones. I could barely walk, would not of been able to drive home and couldn't bend the leg for a week. I got around with my trusty walking stick - must have sprained/strained/torn my thigh muscle. But very pleased to say I'm up and running again.

Life's ups - well I've treated myself to a new sewing machine - a Pfaff Creative Performance with the software and embroidery unit. This doesn't mean that I'll give up my normal sort of textile work, but it does open up new possibilities - my first efforts.


  1. So glad to see you back! I'm so sorry about your falls. My goodness! Good thing you weren't seriously hurt. Lovely stitching! Hugs! deb

  2. Sorry about the injuries, Jillian... but it's nice that some retail and stitching therapy is helping to soothe the pain :)

  3. So sorry to hear about your accidents - how rotten for you. Glad you're up and around again, and enjoying your new purchase.
