It's now four weeks since my last post, and the reason for that is that my second granddaughter, expected near the end of April, made an unexpected appearance 10 weeks early - and 400 miles from the home where she will eventually live. So everything was put on hold while we held our breath. I've moved to the city where the baby was born, to help look after my poorly daughter and her baby. Things seem to be improving steadily with our tiny new arrival and her mother, and we are more hopeful every day that goes by. But life remains complicated for now.
With extended visits to the hospital every day, that hasn't left a lot of time for sewing, though I had committed to completing some garments for my older granddaughter's first trip abroad to visit her other grandparents (with her Mummy and Daddy, of course). However, I have had my sewing machine delivered courtesy of my wonderful husband who drove the 400 miles with that and my iPad and my car, then flew back home. I've succeeded in finishing a few little things for her, but with no time to write about them. She's going in a few days' time, so I may not be able to take photos until she returns. But hopefully she'll get some good wear out of the summery outfits in the tropical climate of her Daddy's place of birth.
Probably I will not be posting any more pages to the blog until we know when the new baby will be able to leave hospital, and we can all start to think again about the future.
