The Beauty of Fall & My Husbands Accident~

Hello Friends~

Hope you are enjoying this beautiful Fall weather we are having this weekend. I am loving all the beautiful colors of the season and I am especially Thankful for my husband!!!!!

My husband was in a terrible accident last Saturday while he was delivering bread to a Mr Hero in Middleburg Hts, OH. He was standing at the counter (with his back to the window) when an elderly man crashed through the window pinning him to the counter. See the pictures below. He was taken to Metro Trama Center in downtown Cleveland. They had to cut his clothes off and his entire body shaking from shock. He ended up with a bruised pelvis and hips and a deep puncture wound. He was told he was a very lucky man. It could have been so much worse. He was in the hospital for 4 days.

I have to pack his wound twice a day, (very intense) it couldnt be stitched up because it has to heal from the inside out. He is walking now, slow but steady. The wound specialist said it would take 6-8 weeks for the wound to heal. We go to the the Dr tommorrow and I think he may need some physical therapy to get the strength back to his legs.

Not sure when he will be going back to work and it doesnt really matter, as he he is facing a long recovery, but he is still here with me and my son, and we love him very, very much. God was watching over him, keeping him safe in what could have been a fatal accident.....

Thanks to everyone for all the calls, visits and the food brought to our house!!

Hope you enjoy the other pictures I posted!!!!

Best Wishes Always~


Here are two photos showing the SUV that crashed through the Mr Hero that hit my husband and pinned him to the counter.

A little bit of Fall Decor!!! Lori Baker Teddy Bear & Squirrel pin cushions, fabric pumpkins and needlepunch pillow made by Primitive Betty!!!

I adore Mums!!!!

This is a Stacy Nash pattern I am working on. It is one of the kits that I get from County Samplers four times a year. It will become a pillow at some point!!!!

Here's a picture of a necklace and earrings I recently made. I wanted something special for fall, so I used carnelian faceted tube beads, some handblown beads, little silver crystals, czech beads and some vintage chain. I also used some vintage chain on the earrings. I was really pleased with the finished piece!

Oh gosh, I don't know how anyone could have come out of the hospital so soon after that accident. So sorry for the bad news...so thankful it wasn't worse.

I'll be keeping good thoughts for you and family...Hugs, Joy

Oh my gosh, Kim! I am so glad your DH is ok after such an awful accident! Thank God it was no worse than it was. The poor man! God was watching over him for sure! I love your stitching and the jewelry you made. Also the stuffed animal displays -- you know I love those! Beautiful flowers as well. I hope your DH recovers quickly. I'll be sending prayers and good thoughts.

Oh my that could have been so much worse! I hope his recovery goes well and quicker than expected. Love your little animal pincushions and the Nash. Nice job on the jewelry too.

Oh my goodness!! What a terrible accident but as you said--thank God that He was watching over your husband as it could have been a lot, lot worse. Please God his recovery will go smoothly. Big hugs to you--I can only imagine how hard it's been on you, too.

Your stitching and jewelry pieces are wonderful! I love the mum photos, too. I don't know if they don't grow over here but if so, they're certainly not like they are in the US.

Kim! I am horrified but also tremendously relieved and thankful that your husband survived this accident. I hope he is doing well and that by now this is all forgotten and in the past. I still LOVE the special book you made for me - it stands the all-important test of time. I do wish you would make more of these for sale -- you have a special way with paper & card stock & ribbons & found objects. :-)
