Shops and Swaps and B.O.M.'s

I can't believe so much time has gone by since I last posted. I'm not sure where the time goes, but go it does.
Yesterday was a busy day for me. First a trip to the library to replenish my supply of books and D.V.D.'s. We have a lovely new library and it's always a pleasure to visit, however it is quite large and there is a lot of walking between sections. Then I went shopping for new nighties, in preparation for a hospital stay. Although tatty nighties are O.K. for home, I don't want to be seen in public wearing rag bag rejects. Another large area to cover, though the 30% off sale made it a little bit easier to accomplish. By end of day I was totally worn out and needed a nap to recover. That was probably more exercise than I've had all year.
I'm off for a total hip replacement operation on August 5th. I'm a bit nervous, but my specialist in Bundaberg, Dr Delaney, seems really nice and I have every confidence in him.
Since I am often in a great deal of pain at the moment and can only get around with the help of my trusty walker, my sewing is limited. Never the less, I am still working on my SCQuilter's block swap. This month's swap theme is "Mother animals and their babies". I am working on a dolphin with her baby. Next month's blocks, which just arrived in the mail, are "Dragons", and they are lovely (mainly purple and gold-very effective).
Although it's nearly midnight I'm having fun blog hopping. I've just been on Lynette Anderson's lovely site. I have downloaded the free B.O.M. -Noah's Ark, and have traced some onto my fabric, but that's as far as I've gone(what else is new-another u.f.o. in the making? I hope not).
Still trying to work out how to customize, but it's all guesswork at the moment.
