Needlework Tuesday - I'm In London visiting the Queen

 I'm away this week in London visiting with the Queen.  Well, London, Ontario and my mother.  She fell last week and broke her leg and needs some TLC.  Today sh is modelling a stylish purple cast. Perfectly fitting as it is the team colour at the University of Western Ontario, which is down the street from her.

In my rush to get here to help, I carefully packed everything I might need during my stay, including the scarf that I had started for daughter.  I had completed 3 pattern repeats and was quite pleased about the results.  I was so looking forward to stitching more.  I made a comment to daughter that I had better not forget my knitting or I'd have to call my sister for an emergency replacement kit.

I'm sure you can guess what happened.  When we unpacked the car at moms, my knitting got missed and daughter took it back home.  So, yes, I, did have to call my sister for a replacement project.  Son brought it by today in this lovely bag.
Three balls of a pretty grey, knitting needles, and a pattern.

February 8, 2015 - Thank-you all for your concern and best wishes for my mom.  She has healed beautifully though still using her cane when she goes outside.  She ended up in a cast for 16 weeks.  The fracture was about 4 inches long and went right to the end of the bone, that's why it took so long to heal.

Mister Linky is waiting below for a link to your current needlework post.

Oh, no! Tell the "Queen" I'm sending healing thoughts her way. I hope she's up and around in no time. Love the purple, by the way.

I won't be doing a post today, but I have done a little knitting. I've kept up with my second temperature scarf and I've started another scarf with some wool I found while moving stuff up from the basement. I wanted something simple to do and I'm hoping it'll fit the bill.

Have a good week.

Here's hoping she isn't in too much pain and is soon on the road to recovery.

A little late, but I sewed something this week!
Love your mom's cast. One of my fav. colours.
Too bad I went to Waterloo (gold and black) instead of Western.

Love the purple cast but not why she has it! Of course, by now she probably doesn't have it anymore.
