Thank you all for your kind messages (on and off blog) following my last post about Belinda. I’m so sorry I haven’t got back to all of you personally between then and now, but your thoughts and prayers are very much appreciated.
I stopped doing my ostrich impression and I spoke to Belinda and I feel so relieved that I have done so. She started her chemotherapy yesterday. It’s a rocky road to be navigated ahead but we’ll all be there for her. In the meantime, a pair of PJs and a nice, cosy quilt are well within my remit as planned, post Christmas makes for her. Sonia also had a great idea of planning a quilt for Jude with Belinda, which we will do. Thanks Sonia 🙂
Anyway, so onto happier things… I had a parcel from lovely Liz today which included a gorgeous linen, text FQ and some fab Christmas decorations as part of a bee Christmas FQ swap. Such a good idea and check these handmade decorations out. Love them! She’s a clever girl, that Liz.
Love the pompoms 🙂
Perfect button Christmas tree!
I haven’t done much sewing in the last week, but I made a little pouch for the husbeast’s goddaughter as part of her Christmas pressie. I used Katy Jones’ tutorial here and it was very quick and easy to make. I have a couple more to make before the big day.
I have also been putting together my blocks from Quilt Around The World. Here’s where I am so far – love them!
So, the only sewing I have left to do this week is sewing some felt ears to a white, fluffy hoodie for Dan. He has the plum role of a sheep in his nativity play on Thursday morning. I’m so looking forward to this – the first one 🙂 No doubt he’ll be the only sheep with a Hot Wheels collection (the cars go everywhere, even the shower)!
At the ‘car wash’
So, what have you been up to this week?
