MoJo Has Returned From 'Long Service Leave'

 My gut issues seem to finally be reliably on the mend, which is great news... I'm not a very patient patient, if you know what I mean. (but then, I don't know anyone who relishes feeling ill!)

While I've not been sewing or doing much stitching, I have been trawling Pinterest & adding a few great ideas, patterns & inspiration to my various boards... & watching a few DVDs I'm now ready to get rid of; they aren't necessary to keep even though the movies were good.
*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~

A couple of times a year, my patchwork group sews quilts for an organisation called "Wheelchairs for Kids" which is a project by Rotary Club, & based in Perth (West Australia).
You can learn about this incredible organisation by clicking HERE.
We make quilts that are sent along with the wheelchairs, to provide some warmth & fun in the cooler months.
I went diving into my Overload & found some fabrics... got cutting & sewing on Sunday... pinning on Monday... & am ready to quilt on Tuesday.
This is perfect for getting me back into some fun easy sewing.

 My efforts for FNwF... getting a move on with my 'Super...docious' cross stitch.
On Friday & again on Saturday I stitched, adding the S, F, R, A, & U. It's very easy to stitch.

More has been added to my Scrappy Hexy Quilt, which will be in my post for PYT.

THANK YOU AGAIN everyone who has left me kind & thoughtful Comments on recent posts, regarding my health... illness can be a lonely thing, but made the better by receiving encouraging words from caring people. The blogging community really is special♥

See you very soon for Piece Yourself Together!

So happy to read that you are feeling better. It's hard to do much when not feeling 100%. Your X-stitch project has beautiful colors and surely cheers you up!

I love the idea of doing quilts to go with the wheelchairs - what a wonderful thing to do. Gorgeous fabric in your quilt :o)

So good to read that you are on the mend and already feeling a lot better. One is so limited when not feeling well.
You made such a lovely quilt for the Wheelchairs for Kids organization. A great idea indeed.

I'm reading through a blog backlog backwards (What a tongue twister!) so have only just seen this. So glad to hear you are feeling better.

It's so good that you are finally feeling better and more yourself. I know too well what 'gut issues' can do to you. The quilt seems a perfect project for getting back into your sewing and the cross stitch is gorgeous!
