Fudge to sit silent for longer

Hello all, well I have done it!!Fell over a pot planter on Sunday aaaaabanged my head and knee  -- and by Monday I knew it was a teeny serious  - Monday -spent the morning at A &E and by 1.30  I was waiting at the fracture clinic Lower Hutt Hospital  for a cast or whatever for a broken Knee Cap--Patela--  the bad news was no weight bearing for ten days have to learn to use crutches keep leg straight--  oh dear me-- this is the first sprain/ break I have ever had-- what a learning curve this is.
Worst is I can not use Fudge and its looking like about 6 weeks or---!!
Just as well I love handwork so my next posts will be embroidery or some type of handwork
Watch this space.

Here are the close up photos of my Applique bag--As I mentioned in my last post Fudge could not manage the fancy stitching I wanted due to the thickness of the batting  so I handstitched the glitz--Handstitching is something I love to do and especially embroidery type stitching--
