Good News, Kindness and Nature’s Magic

We had the best news today that a singing friend had his last treatment and yesterday ‘rang the bell.’ I have his permission to share the good news and his photo where he has dressed up for the occasion.

Flour has been hard to get hold of, especially strong flour for bread making. On Thursday evening, after clapping for our carers  in this crisis, we started chatting to our other next-door neighbours whom we hardly know. We were chatting generally about shopping and life under lockdown and that we are self-isolating (not because we are ill but we are considered vulnerable) Today, on our doorstep, we found a note on a bag with flour that S&P had sourced for us from a local farm shop, such a kind gesture from people we hardly know.

We have watched with increasing amusement today as the pile of potting mix on a big cloth left on my ‘potting table’ for the next session, changed shape. As the wind has blown fairly wildly today, the random pile that filled the cloth, has gradually become a beautifully neat circle!

Forget-me-Nots, Glass and Sewing

I have just found this! Somehow yesterday, I forgot to post it!

I love seeing the first Forget-me-nots in the garden. The plant came from Mum and Dad’s garden in Truro after Mum had died and has seeded itself every year since in memory of my lovely Mum.

Before I cleared up all my glass, I finished off my newest piece and here it is for you to see.

I have washed the fabric, ironed, cut out and pinned ready to make the porterage bags for the scrubs that others will be making.

Mum is here with me too as I use the patchwork pincushion that she made about 40 years ago! They are her pins too.
