Handmade vintage ...


Well I'm pleased to be able to report that I finally got the results on my foot ... seems I have stress fractures in two of my toes ... hence the pain and swelling ... and I have been walking with this for 4 months whilst awaiting the correct diagnosis ... worse still I had the foot manipulated by my Chiropractor ... Yes, it was agony! ... So now I have a special shoe and crutches and all I can do is rest ... Think I can cope with that ... I know it will take up to 12 weeks but by hook or by 'crutch' I will go on my planned cruise in April ...

One of the receptionists at the hospital has been so helpful and I wanted to give her a little something ... I had This set still ... and thought it would be perfect together with a handmade pin cushion


I had this lovely material with sewing details on ... 


and I just cut the heart shape free hand 


The pretty pin is from sweet June ... and I stamped 'handmade vintage style' straight on to a scrap of the material with stamps from PTI  


This is the reverse ... I really enjoy making these so you may see some more in the future

I wish you a wonderful day

~ Ros ~

I love your heart pin cushion and a lovely idea to give as a gift - glad you have the diagnosis, that should be a stress relieve in itself.

So sorry that you have been messed about for so long, Ros. But, now you finally know why you were in such pain. And like I told you, unless they do an MRI these types of fractures can be missed. I hope you don't have to hop about on one foot like I did.

Your little heart is so pretty, and the receptionist will be thrilled to receive it, as not many patients are as nice as you:)

Irene said...

Hope it heals quickly. What a lovely heart cushion to give to someone who is so helpful.

It's good to know you finally have a diagnosis but for heaven's sakes - how could it have taken so long to figure it out?? I keep my fingers crossed, though, that you'll be able to fully enjoy your cruise in April!
