Mission accomplished

Hello dear friends. I am so glad to be back and I am happy that you are back with me too.

Well, mission ovary removal was successfully accomplished and I was back home on the 1st of December. The operation was a bit complicated as the the cyst had decided to cling to all possible organs around it. My poor surgeon had a tough time...4 hours actually. She must have been exhausted. So glad that it is over and done with.

A big Thanks to all of you my dear friends, for your best wishes, prayers, hugs and positive vibes. I think they really helped me. I was also touched that some of you took the trouble to contact me by email to ask about my health. That was so sweet of you.

After playing invalid or rather "beached whale" as my son so delicately put it,  for a week I had enough and picked up my hook and yarn. I would have crocheted in the hospital too but as the IV lines made that impossible I finished reading a Mary Higgins Clark mystery instead.

So, here is the first project I made post operation. A pair of Bed socks or slippers.

I had thought I will be staying in bed for a long time. And as warm feet are a must for me to get any sleep, this project really seemed apt.

The pattern is quite simple. It is actually only a rectangle of single crochets in the back loop which is then folded and seamed at the bottom, toes and the top, leaving enough space for your foot to go in. Then use your favourite edging around the ankles. Easy peasy.

I was inspired by a photo in Pinterest. Also the variegated yarn had a "busy" colour scheme which made it unsuitable for any other project and I had only one ball of it.

Bed socks on duty. How do you like it?

Friends, it feels so good to be back with all of you. Thanks for visiting and do write to me..soon. I am so looking forward to hearing from all of you. 

Yay! I am so happy to see that my blog has crossed 100 followers. A lot of new friends have joined us but they will have to forgive me if I don't mention them today as I still have to get the links for their blogs. Nevertheless, a very very warm welcome to all of them, I will wish all of you personally soon.

I will be back soon with another cute project. Till then take care, happy hooking. Take the time today to do something you always wanted to do. Life is short and unpredictable. :)
I am off to listen to my favourite music CD.

Love and hugs xxx

Sunflower mobile cozy

Hello, my lovely friends. I hope you had a great week. A big Thank you to all my dear friends for your kind words and best wishes for my surgery.

Let me start by welcoming our new friends;
Tracy from CrochetHappy
Nityakalyani from Nityas Knits Quoin
Rosa La maida  from Vaire La Tejedora 
Elisabeth from Elizy Art
and Suma

In my last post I promised to show you the small project I made for my MIL. Well. here it is, a sunflower cozy for her mobile phone.

A cute little sunflower.

I have added a button at the back so that the phone does not slip out even though the cozy is a snug fit. I hope my MIL is using it in Mumbai.

I am certainly not looking forward to the surgery, but the slight pain and tenderness in my abdomen is making me wish it happens fast.

I have no idea when I will be posting next. So until then, take care, have fun and happy hooking. I will be looking forward to visiting you as soon as I am back from the hospital.

Lots of love xxx
