I’m loving it. The plan is to teach Elder how to use it and we will make a quilt or similar. Summer stitching, can’t beat it. Xxx

A silver (and gold) lining

Success!!! Quite frankly I needed a boost after this week and by gad, I got not one but 3 today. I’d entered the local village show with a few things and to my shock and awe I got first prize in quilting (me!), second in ‘an object made from recycled materials’ and s highly commended in crochet. I have rosettes!!!!

So nice to forget real life for a bit. Marvellous. And thank you to everyone who has sent me good wishes. I’m reconciling myself to what I hope is an opportunity. I’ve lots of plans. Lets see how they turn out shall we?
