Studio Visit

Grandma has been busy

Firstly she managed to catch the flu and lose her voice.  Some would say this was a blessing.  But I have "Children's Classes" starting tomorrow so it is lots of tablets to get my temperature down.  I will see how I go tomorrow.

Then last Saturday we took to girls to see Cinderella at the theatre.  My eldest grand daughter is on the Autistic spectrum, in old terminology that is Aspurgers.  She falls into the gifted and talented range and although only 6 years old is more like a 15 or 16 years old.  One of the effects of this is that she suffers from terrible anxiety.  For weeks she has been stressing out about the colouring competition that she entered for the show.  Would she win, wouldn't she win, how terrible her work was.  She made a mistake here or there.  By the time we got to the theatre she was a mess.  She and her sister both won prizes and the day improved.

She also has had to get braces.  Another thing that shouldn't have happened until her teens but it is better to have 6 months now than trouble later on. My daughter suffered for years with twisted teeth and got to the point she wouldn't smile at all until they were fixed.

Then the girls put the heavies on Grandma.  Miss Bunny needed a proper quilt, she was getting cold!  (in all this heat).

And those 20 something Barbie Dolls needed quilts and new pillows on their beds.  Luckily there are only 2 beds and a cot.

Then, in an aside, they told me a tail of woe.  They had no pretty dresses and Mummy can't sew.  So I am really under the pump to make some new dresses.  I have one under construction.

And I managed to buy some Liberty prints in a sale at $18 per metre.

With the prices of fabric today I think it would have been cheaper just to buy them dresses.

No wonder granny has a cold! Granny has been TOO busy! Will you manage the workshops? Thinking of you.
BTW pretty dresses in the construction!


My goodness, they really were cracking the whip!

But it was worth it to see their delight at the results.
