A Year On...

Hard to believe that a year ago that our lives were turned upside down in an instant. Sarah was coming back from a school camp and the parent driver turned in front of an oncoming car into the school grounds. She was the rear seat passenger right beside that crushed door. She sustained a fractured femur and pelvis, facial fractures, head injury with a subdural haematoma and lots of lacerations and wounds.

The car in which she was sitting. She was the rear passenger behind that
crushed door and took the full impact.
The ambulance officers carrying her to the rescue helicopter
I think this speaks for itself!!
In Intensive Care after all her facial lacerations have been sutured
and she has been cleaned up
In ICU in traction waiting for operating theater to have her femur
 rodded.  She hasn't really regained consciousness at this stage.
And here she is today with only a scar on her leg to show for it.  She has completely healed and you would never know that we had gone through this hideous trauma.  I am so thankful each day for her recovery.  Life is given so easily and can be taken away just as quickly.

On a more cheery note, I have finished up a few more bee blocks. For my month in the Modern Minx bee, I chose Selvage Strings from the Modern Blocks book. This is my block and I have asked for the solid colour to be different for each member.

Amelie wanted the Set Sail block from this book in soft colour and "nice" browns! I hope she likes it.

  And this is a block for me for my purple, aqua and green quilt. I have a bunch of blocks already from the 3 x 6 bee and the 4 x 5 bee. I used the Starry Web block from Quilters Cache and paper pieced it.  At the end of my next bee round I will have enough to put the quilt together.


  1. Oh, she was truly blessed that day for sure. Gosh a whole yr already! Lovely blocks - I really like the affect of the Sail block.

  2. Hooray for Sarah!!! I've prayed many times for her and thought of all of you often - so glad she's made such a wonderful recovery!!! That's definitely worth a whoop whoop!!!

    PS Your blocks are really pretty too!!

  3. What a difference a year can make! So glad Sarah has recovered so well. Your blocks are amazing - as usual. Happy Halloween from socal!

  4. great blocks! life throws some turns in to test us for sure. glad all is on the mend.
