Hi All,
I have been in the Coronary Care unit for a week because of bradycardia (heart failure) but now have a pacemaker to cope. I am beginning to feel like a different person but it is taking a while. Meantime I have not done any lace. Motivation is low but hopefully will pick up soon.

A positive attitude is all you can ask for - but know others are thinking of you.

Head down and make lots of lace - it is good therapy!!
And chatting to other Lacemakers! That is the best therapy of all, as I have found them wonderfull supportive people.

Thankyou again Elizabeth. We will make our Christmas as happy as we can. We have to be positive even though we know the eventual outcome, because life is what you make it. I wish you a happy Christmas & a good New Year for 2011.

My heart goes out to you. I can't wish you a happy Xmas, but I hope it won't be too sad, and that the New Year will turn things around, and you have a better year in 2011.

As you say, "thank goodness for needlework and lace"!

Thankyou Elizabeth for your kind thoughts & message. No, I have not got a relative or friend in the mine disaster, but I shed a few tears for the families who are affected. It is so terrible especially as most of the men were young men - the youngest being 17. The poor old South Island has been in the wars all year what with deep snow down south, the earthquakes & now the mine disaster. On top of that I have had a very bad year healthwise plus my younger sister has been diagnosed with terminal cancer. What next can life throw at us? Thank goodness for neeldework & lace!

You poor Kiwis. You can't win a trick lately, can you. Our hearts go out to you all. I hope you did not have friends or relatives involved with the terrible Mine disaster. You have enough to worry about with the quake after shock, and your health.
Just know that we send loving thoughts and hugs from over here in Oz.

Yes, my house is safe but has minor damage such as stress cracks inside & out, plus lost my lovely china, a Tv set which made a hole in the wall as it fell, a fan & a fugurine which my late mother gave me. I can get it fixed but it has lost its monetary value. At least I still have the connection of it to my late mother.

That must be SO scarey.
My Father worked in NZ for a short while - back in the 1930's, - and he told me of a quake he witnessed, and all the telegraph poles were swaying. (all I can remember of what he said!)
We have had a couple of shakes here that we have felt, - but just a mild jolt, and it was not till after a few minutes that we realized what it was! I hope your house is safe.

Yes, I have worked out the number of quakes over the number of weeks we have had them & averaging the quakes out, it means we have had one every 30 minutes! Some we don't feel but there is still odd one which really shakes us up.

Gosh! That many after shocks! I cannot imagine what it must be like.
Glad to see you are "feeling more like your old self". I hope you get a good summer over there, this year, - you all deserve it.

Yes, I am taking it easy. I'm feeling more like my old self today & have been doing a bit if stitching so that's a good sign!
