Well, since my last post, I haven’t been making a whole lot. I went on vacation, on my own, for nine days to visit my family.
Thanks to the lengthy traveling time (three flights in a row, each way) I had only six days to see as much of my mum and sister as possible.
Mum turned 90 and we had a party for her at her house (her first time she’s been home since last September thanks to a health crisis that had her in hospital for 10 weeks and then in a care home). She is hoping to be strong enough to return home, with daily visits from care aides, possibly in April.
The holiday was wonderful.
Beautiful weather, most days.
Incredible birthday cake.
While there, my holiday crochet entailed making three dishcloths of which I didn’t get pictures. I left them at mum’s house to be used.
This morning I finally got back to the sewing room and made a tote bag for hanging up at work. Love this fabric so much.
I have a late shift today but a weekend off to look forward to. The weather is warming up nicely and I’m eagerly anticipating the new leaves and green shoots of spring.
Jersey looks so nice. Imagine having a castle turret on the property ! for protection from invaders ? The fabric is lovely – soft colors , nice pattern. Glad you are back so we can enjoy your efforts !
Those granite towers are dotted around the coast. They’ve been there since Norman times for defence. Plus there are two castles and a few forts!
Those are old if I can remember some of my history. Here they are still standing ! Thanks for letting me. Welcome home .
Where is home??? Such a pretty beach
My family is in the island of Jersey. It’s the most southerly of the British Isles.
