Thank you so much for the lovely comments about my Mam on last Sunday’s blog.
It’s her funeral tomorrow morning and the Rev Newton, who’s taking the service, has promised he’ll give her a ‘good send-off’ – his words!!!
Last week when we found her unfinished work we discovered a lot of scrap fabric which must have been used to make the charity quilts. I’ve decided once I’ve completed her charity things I’m going to make a memory quilt out of the scraps that are left.
I’ve been given my Mam and Dad’s wedding rings and instead of just keeping them in a jewellery box (I have very thin fingers so they’re way too big) I’m going to see if they can be melted down and refashioned into a ring that I can wear. That way I get to wear something every day that belonged to both of them. Does anyone know what’s the best way to do this?
I haven’t done a great deal of sewing this week – for various reasons.... – but I did finish off a pot holder I’d made entirely from bits of Mr Gertie’s old work shirts.
Have a great week.
