Well since coming back from Australia my feet have hardly touched the ground and we are beginning to wonder what our house looks like. Mum celebrated her 92nd birthday on 27th August and two weeks later had a fall and decided that she no longer wanted to live on her own. She is now in a really lovely residential home and seems really happy there. Considering she was always insistant that she wasn't going to go into a home it was a great relief to us that she decided herself that was what she wanted.
The photos are of my contribution to our Branch of the Embroiderers Guild Rainbow Squares. I managed to get our members to produce enough for two strips of 12 but I got rather carried away with mine.
