.. was a bit disjointed .. and not to plan !! lol x

Mum went to the Treatment Centre at the local hospital ... and had somewhat of a "wobble".. which resulted in her staying in .. oh well! It took some organising of dad .. we managed and once he had been to visit and saw with his own eyes that she was OK .. he settled xx

She is back at home again and doing OK again x

I managed to sew a small cot quilt that has been requested..

....simple and quick.. and has already been collected x

I started the bag for last week ... and my machine had one of those fits when there is a birds nest underneath your work!!! I only had the brain power to walk away .. swearing under my breath as I went xx lol x .. I havn't been back yet!!

A new hat has gone to the granddaughter...

.. more out of the stash x

A shawl was finished ..

BIG and squashy.. and because it has been cold wet and VERY windy here (thanks to storm Doris !!) .. it has already been wound around my neck .. several times.. and has kept me nice and warm.

Hoping for some time this week .. mum ONLY going .... to the dentist .. one appointment at the hospital and one at the Drs. !!!.. you never know xx lol x

Some little gems from the garden this week are ..

Hope you have all had a good week x

.. a funny old couple of weeks here x My mum and dad heard of the deaths of 3 "old " friends .. both in age and in years they have known each other .. then my mums middle brother died.

He had been ill for a while .. but he is the first of her siblings to die ... (they were  ALL  5 in their eighties )... and it hit them all hard.

It has been his funeral to-day , so, a day of mixed emotions.

Mum has had 4 hospital appointments AND .. believe it or not has actually been discharged from one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  YES I did say DISCHARGED!!

She has been for a Pre-operative assessment as well .. so "minor" op to look forwards to now xx.. Hey-Ho ... the fun continues xx lol x

I have not had so much time for me this week no bag ... tomorrow I hope .. I have 5 made so 1 tomorrow will have 6 bags for 6 weeks of the year ... now where did that time go? !!

I have finished a shawl...

.. and started another .. they are good for when sitting in waiting rooms and very portable.

Hope your last couple of weeks have been more settled and productive x
