2 for September

What’s a good way to fill time waiting for surgery? Build a couple of wonky, liberated houses! I have my surgery coming Wednesday morning, and it will include a stay in the hospital overnight at least. I’ve been doing a lot of nothing but stewing, anxious to hear test results , and worried a bit about surgery (2-3 hours was what the nurse figures I’ll be on the table). So tonight I decided to sew, having cleared up the sewing room enough to work. Here is the result of my effort…2 houses, one big, one small…

These are fun and easy and I hope I’m up to doing some more soon after surgery. Tomorrow I really need to do laundry and clean house…or make sure the kids do! BTW, my PET scan came back all clear but the mass on the adrenal gland, which is to be removed in surgery and biopsied. Oncologist was pleased with the test results, so I’m pretty confident all will be fine, but a few more thoughts and prayers sure couldn’t hurt!


  1. Love these houses especially the multi coloured roof. Best wishes for your surgery.

  2. Keeping you in my prayers during surgery and recovery. Love the houses,

  3. Your houses are terrific. Best wishes for a successful surgery.

  4. Great houses! Good luck with your operation – I hope all goes well and you recover quickly.

  5. Love the houses, and I'll be keeping you in my prayers during your surgery and recovery. Janet S

  6. I love the combination of patterns and colors in your houses–I think I could live in the lime green one with the purple chimney 😉

    I have added your blocks to the list; we now have 70 houses so far this month.

    Good luck with the surgery–all the preliminary stuff sounds very good. You are definitely in my thoughts and prayers.

  7. I've got all my fingers and toes crossed for you! Good luck!
