I have finally finished the third of my stitchery blocks for the tablerunner:
Im going to be teaching this at a workshop in February called "Summer Garden with Creative Women"......of course there r going to be 3 amazing designers there, Gail Pan, Rosalie Quinlan and Natalie Lymer (and me!!) all of whom i cant wait to meet!!! Its very exciting and Im sure it is going to be a fantastic weekend..............to make it even more special, a very good friend of mine (who i wont name cause ill let her share this news)......is flying a very, very long way to be here for the workshop (have u guessed who yet???).........She is going to be here for 11 odd days and ive been "happy dancing" since we first discussed it!!!!! Ill be able to show her around Tassie and its quite possible that in June next year, she will be able to show me her wonderful country ( and one very close to it lol)
My MIL is home from the hospital and i would like to thank everyone for their lovely comments and to all those who sent such heartfelt emails during the last week. Things havent gone smoothly since she was discharged......her days r quite up and down and last nite we experienced a very bad "down" moment (which was really quite scary) but today she was looking and feeling so much better. She is trying (or fighting is probably a better word) to hold onto her independence and we respect that, but i dont think she realises that she really isnt doing anything for herself anymore.
Ive had limited time (or energy) to sew this last week due to helping out with Mum and getting orders ready (thank u New Zealand for being so accepting of "Family Values") so i just have to do what i can, when i can!!!
