For some time now ive seen these cute little pincushions on different blogs and just needed to try them:
But really, how many pincushions does one girl need??............and seriously, its quite common to find me walking around the studio with pins in my mouth!!!
But i had an idea!!!!.........if anyone has cared for an elderly relative they would know what we r dealing with at the moment with my MIL. We respect her right to live in her own home but it is exhausting and at times, if we didnt receive the help we do, it wouldnt be possible. She is doing so much better, but sadly she lost her sister (aged 80) .....so this week hasnt been great!!!
Mum has so many wonderful people helping us care for her...........helping out with the household chores, showering her, shopping for her, helping me take her to Doctors appointments and they have become part of her life and ours, so with Xmas coming up she would be embarrassed if she didnt have a gift to give them to show her appreciation...............so my plan is, to fill up a basket, over the next few days, with these little gems, ill get some cute Xmas labels and she can give the out to all who "help her"...........i told her of my plan on the phone tonite and she was stoked!!!
From our point of view, we could never repay the people who help out..........i have watched my father and how taking care of his parents affected him and our family..........i watch my Mum, now taking care of her parents, and i worry for her, and now Les and I care for his Mum, and at times it is really hard, so for someone to take the time out and go and buy a loaf of bread or get a carton of milk, or to hang the washing out before i get there each morning, or to offer to sit with her for the day..............i could never repay u, please accept my pincushion as a heartfelt gift!!!
