November this and that

This weekend - Mother in hospital.
Last weekend - Drove 850 kilometres to see my sister and her family. Was in an accident, another car drove into me. No injuries just a few scratches.
Weekend before that - The stitching show.

I always though of November as a rather grey and dull month. Nothing particular going on and everyone is waiting for December and all the Christmas stuff. This year everything is just going crazy!

The Mother in hospital story isn't really bad but bad enough... We have had a lot of snow and cold this week and my Mother managed to slip and fall on an icey spot. Now she's in hospital with a hip fracture. The fracture is complicated and she's going through her second surgery tomorrow. Please send her some happy, healing thoughts!

The good news this week has been all the beautiful postcards that has arrived in the mail. I swaped some of the cards I made for the stitching show and this is what these lovely ladies send me.

From Linda in Australia.

From Genie in England.

From Corryna in the Netherlands.

From Robin in Australia.

From Lorenza in Italy.

From Lise in Norway.

Swaping is so much fun! Thank you!

Have a great week!

It seems you have been very busy in November, not dull at all. Lovely cards you have got! My best wishes for your mother !!

Annica, I'm so sorry for your mother. Send her my best recovery wishes.
I hope December will be a better month for you.

Corryna said...

I also hope your mother is better soon. And that she can join you all in December, especially with the holidays.

I saw all the cards you received. They are wonderful! I also like swaping cards. It is so nice to see what others create and how they combine colours etc.

And Yes, I would like to trade an ATC with you, but I have to make some new once, so it might take some time, before that is ready.



Dear Annica,
wish you and your mother the bestand I am sure days will be better!

Gina said...

Och jag skriver på svenska. Hoppas att allt löser sig för dig och att du avslutar november månad med några sköna dagar.
December månad kommer ju att fyllas av ljus i mängder och sedan så ser vi fram emot nyår och snart är det vår och sommar igen.......fast, njut ändå av dagen det är viktigt.
Sköt om dig och ha det gott

Hei Annica! Det var mange bekymringer på en gang. Tror vi er i den samme "klubben" alt for mange helseproblemer og sykehusinnleggelser her også. La oss satse på at desemer blir en bedre måned!!

Hope your mom is doing better. And I'm so glad that the accident was not worse. The new cards are a bright spot though and I think maybe you need that happy spot right now. Things will turn around..just keep smiling!

Jackie said...

Ohups and downs...I know all about that. I am glad you weren't hurt and hope your mother recovers soon.

Hi Annica!
I'm so sorry to hear about your accident and your mother's hospitalization. I hope you are all recovering. As you likely know, I haven't really been reading any blogs at all lately but am completely engrossed in CYBER FYBER. The exhibition is coming along WONDERFULLY! For the remainder of the month I'll likely be blogging about it on the CYBER FYBER journal and just letting my personal blog sit rather idle! I can hardly wait to see your work hanging at Gallery 80808. I'll write as soon as it arrives here in South Carolina!

I hope by now your Mother is mending well after her unfortunate accident....I have sent Happy Healing thoughts her way...
I was looking at the postcards you have received as well as the ones you have made. Oh My!!! they are certainly little works of art....., such treasures. Postcards are my fave to do . Maybe we could do a trade in the new year...
Meanwhile I wish you a MERRY CHRISTMAS & A HAPPY NEW YEAR.

Annica, I wanted to sign up to follow your blog, but there was no place to do it?? Help?
