Not been doing much crafting these last few weeks. I had some less glamorous work in the form of curtains and Roman blind orders for a customer. Along with this boring sewing task I also had a disaster of a weekend.I had to rush home to see my poor mum who had ended up in hospital after a black out and fall.
Whilst on route, I ended up on a train, stuck on the track, dead still for two hours whilst police buzzed around the line with ambulance men. Someone had fell on the track, in front of my train. Terrible I know..... worst thing was the train was overloaded as a London train had been cancelled and all I could think about was getting to my mum. not the poor person on the track. (how terrible am I). public transport is not what it used to be. gone are the days off a nice window and table seat when you can grab a few peaceful hours of book reading.
Disaster Disaster Disaster............... Well luckily my mum is on the mend but the poor person under my train was not so fortunate.
(makes me feel even worse for cursing them for being so clumsy while I was just glad I had packed some chocolate....)
On the up side I finished a couple of reindeer and Betty. they have been half finished on my sewing pile for yonks and after the stress of the weekend I thought some sewing therapy was in order and these three characters came to light.
Fingers crossed for a better half term week with the kids. looking forward to embrace the chaos they bring, and fun filled days.
I live in sunny Cornwall with my two children and husband.
