Shears, Hat and Nutcracker

20 Nov

I continued with my new project today and needed pinking shears for trimming the seams on the curves. Out came Mum’s wonderful pair. I so love using tools, sewing or garden, that my Mum used – brings her into the room with me.

I completed the little reversible sun hat just before we went out late this afternoon. It’s for a friend’s  5 year old Granddaughter  who has to undergo chemotherapy.

Matthew Bourne’s Nutcracker was an absolute delight. We saw it in Newlyn as part of the Filmhouse’s event series.

You might like to read the review that was in The Guardian – agree with every word!

    So sad when kids have cancer . . . hope the hat and chemo do the trick!

    Loved the video clip.

      Awful isn’t it. many years ago our nephew in Arizona was diagnosed and had many years of treatment. The Make a Wish people gave him a trip to Cornwall to see his Grandfather and the rest of us. We hope the chemo will work for little A. xx
