But priorities tomorrow is a sewing day. My friends husband is walking the Tongariro Crossing so we're going to sew. I have to be there at 8.30am.. .I am so easily pleased. Sewing is so creative and colourful and it keeps me enthusiastic. And it must be good for improving the mind... have so many ideas and there are so many mathematical sums to work out... yeah well, how many excuses do you need to sew quilts huh.
I'm going to put a bit more of my floral UFO together (you've seen before) and also some of my english allotment garden. Our garden at home was like an allotment. We didn't have a lot of lawn in our back yard, it was flowers and vegetables everywhere you looked. The front lawn was where we played cricket or skipping but a few years ago when my Dad retired he dug that up too and put a huge circular rose garden in the middle. In fact I found a very old photo of my Dad planting the flower garden and I'm going to put this into my quilt somewhere?.
My big girl was diagnosed with Tietze Syndrome and sadly it's another thing she'll have to live with for the rest of her life. Painkillers every day at the moment but at least it wasn't a heart attack. Thank God. She's such a beautiful soul. Cam is coming over to stay next weekend again and this will be fun. He is happy to do anything. He'll help me in the garden, he'll sew, he loves to cook and I'll take him to the pool etc again so we compromise. I love having quality time with them and hopefully my grandchildren will visit Nanny for many years to come.
