It is even more Brrrrr today because the frost didn,t clear from yesterday, I think we are entering the second ice age , but nevertheless bluebell and myself have been out browsing and doing a little shopping therapy . We also did quite a bit of laughing . It,s good for the soul .
We went to Dunelm and spent a few pieces of eight . Me! white silk flowers for a new arrangement. Some pretty turquoise baubles for my tree , Umm, and some christmas cards and while in there we spotted just the right weight of batting for machine quilting.We have been trying to buy thin batting for a long time . After consultation , deliberation and a few other factors we decided we would have all that was on the roll . 99p a yard , there was 46 yards on the roll . We will not be begging quilt group leaders for just a bit more . No one would tell us where we could buy a roll of batting
I came home to these beautiful flowers on my doorstep , they were a gift from http://Angelaoftracingrainbows.com ,Angela had read on bluebells blog that my 97 year old Mum died last Saturday. Thank you Angela, you lifted my spirits wit your kindness , and such a pretty card too .
My mum had a good life , hard at times , there were six of us children . Me being the eldest . then a sister 5 years younger ,then a brother 9 years younger than me ,then my Dad came home from the war and 3 more children were quickly added to the family .
My mum was bright and cheerful until about a week before she died . She was a credit to us , the centre pivot to our family She will be sadly missed for a long time .
I said I would put the cakes I have been knitting and crocheting , they are for Ellie and River to play tea parties with , they are learning to identify colours so the toppings will help , I,ll have one with pink on the top please Ellie
