Its been a busy week, too busy to sew this week. So that means that I haven’t “rolled the dice” this week, sadly. We’re off and away in the caravan tomorrow, and my sewing machine is coming with me. Not to sew with, it’s all packed up and will be getting delivered to Barry (in Feilding) tomorrow, sewing machine fixer-upper extraordinaire. Hopefully he will get it serviced quickly and I can get sewing again.
All packed up to visit Barry
But although the sewing news this week is a bit sad, I’ve got some really good news to share. After waiting with fingers and toes crossed for the last two weeks, I’ve just been informed that my anniversary mammogram of “the bad one” has come back clear, with “no sign of recurrence of breast cancer”. Thank goodness for that, now I can stop holding my breath.
I’ve also been having a clean up. I’ve been on a bit of a search, looking through crates, boxes, and bags of this and that. Looking for pieces of fabric I no longer required, for orphan blocks, patterns, wool, haby and craft books that are past their use by date, in my mind at least. But one crafter’s cast offs will be swooped on with glee by others, I’m sure. And the reason behind this clear out? The Altrusa Club of Levin are collecting all these things for the Levin Fabric Bazaar, with the proceeds going to the Arohanui Hospice, which is a very good cause indeed.
