One Little Project!



Though the sewing room is so messy, it was just so lovely to be in 'my little corner of the world' - and I have made my little thread catcher, so I shouldn't be kicked out of Donna's Stitch-Along though one day late. The little design is from the book Red Home by Natalie Bird - practical and fun!
I must now check to see what to do for February.
 
Yesterday was a doozy! Mum and I went to the doctor for scripts and a checkover and to cut a long story short, as I was trying to get Mum into the car from the wheelchair she fell straight back and hit the back of her head on the bitumen. An ambulance was in the vicinity and after much screaming and yelling people came from everywhere to assist. Straight back to the doctor we went, big egg on the back of Mum's head, otherwise found to be undamaged after a thorough check. Mum was badly shaken - me, well there is nothing a beautiful, refreshing Mojito can't fix. Late to bed last night and I slept like a baby - how can I pretend it was all so easy? - life's challenges, I guess, lol!
 
Happy Day everyone!

OOO! Poor Mum. I was talking to an old lady today - probably in her eighties - who laughingly admitted than when she was younger she had no idea of what it felt like to be old and ignored. I sure hope your Mum is feeling happier soon. I've cheekily sent you an email with a little attachment. Hope you enjoy it. Cherrie

Must have been very scary! Glad your mum wasn't seriously hurt. Seeing the doctor can be a hazard to your health! ♥
