Decisions, decisions ...

... Scrappy and I loved our joint quilt so much that we are both making smaller versions now.  These are destined to be charity quilts and we have been asked for cot sizes.  I've made my blocks, and then I had to decide about the layout. I  decided not to go for the original layout that we  used, but to play around a bit and see what happened.  Well, this is what happened:

With a little help from Scrappy,  I think I've settled on the middle layout, although I'm tempted to go for the third version, but with the fabrics swapped around a bit. Any thoughts anyone?

Ouch ...

... Mr Fixit is now home again with his infection and his fever under control, and a load of strong antibiotics. The reason for his fall is not clear, but may have been caused because of his extremely high temperature. His bruises are multicoloured, and I still don't know how he didn't break any bones, but he says he's not in any pain. Thanks everyone for your thoughts, wishes and messages.

Well, I'm home ...

... in fact, we came home last Saturday, (just half way through our holiday) as Mr Fixit was not well. Things went from bad to worse then.  Mr Fixit had a fall, and came from top to bottom of our stairs, round two bends, all, thankfully, without breaking any bones.  So along comes an ambulance, and off we went to the hospital.  The hospital were concerned about why he fell, and wondered if it was connected with the very high temperature he was suffering, so they're keeping him in for a few days. Mr Fixit is not a good patient unfortunately, and my son made me laugh when he said that he and my daughter were thinking they ought to send the hospital staff a Good Luck card!  Maybe today we'll get some answers from the hospital and Mr Fixit can come home.
