I’m just back from spending a few days with Ma Kettle, seeing how she’s settling in and checking out the improvements/changes made to her new abode.
It wasn’t totally altruistic; I did have to go via Millrose as I was having withdrawal symptoms having not been for a couple of months. The shop was so warm and cosy after the freezing weather outsideand such a warm welcome from Lizzie and Nat, and Catherine and Jo were there sewing too;the wool made my fingers itch to knit, but I was on a mission;yes, the fabric rooms were calling my name.I needed a binding for “Wallender” now that the quilting is done (Nat found the perfect end of bolt piece), a few more fabrics for my 100days100blocks (getting a bit tired of the same old, same old after 50+ blocks), and a couple of “Outback Wife” pieces for my “Parsons Geese” quilt.Mission accomplished!
I shouted myself lunch next door
then headed on over to Ma’s. We had a lovely few days together, getting out and seeing “half Autumn leaves”
Ma’s new sofa bed had arrived and was where I slept, and very comfy it was tooand Pa’s orchids are looking happy in their new home; he’d be so pleased.The front garden needs a little TLC, but hopefully LittleBigBrother will attend to that in the next week or sobut in the meantime, Ma is making the most of what she can glean from this new little garden.All in all, Ma is settling in well; still a few things to be done, but they’re slowly happening.
