Dolly steps


It has been very hectic in the Cardy household....but hopefully beginning to settle.
Mum is getting better & working hard at increasing her strength to mobilise,
Dad is managing well with a little help.
Small steps forward & they will adapt!
Work has consumed most of the rest of my time...
not much time for stitching unfortunately!
But,after mowing this afternoon, I managed to finish this mug bag for DD...
complete with lime green mug!
Someone, who shall remain nameless, was found investigating the bag interior...
he just can't help himself!

DD is home for a semester break...she will help me get a handle on the housework again.
Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou!

DD is reading this gorgeous book..

"Backwards in High Heels- The impossible art of being female".

It looks at the expectations put on women by both society & ourselves.

It says "..Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did- only she did it backwards & in high heels." I think we all can appreciate that!

Love to all you special women!
