This week has been particularly hectic. My elderly parents moved house and hadn't packed a single box (unsurprising, as both have problems with their memory). You can only imagine the chaos when the removal men turned up two hours earlier than planned! They were fabulous though, and despite the mayhem, nothing was too much trouble for them. I would highly recommend Kitson's Transport if you live locally to their base in Atherton.
Mum and Dad's new apartment is now cosy and settled, but there is still much confusion in their minds. Dad in particular is confused about absolutely everything and has wandered off twice already. Each time he has been found within the building, so that's good (and he is now well known to the care team who are on site 24/7). My sister and I still have a lot of work to do settling both of them and familiarising them with everything so we've established a twice-a-day visiting rota between us for now.
They have started using their medication organiser pockets. Up to now, it's working well - but they are having more support than usual at the moment.
In other news, issue 34 of Craftseller popped through my letterbox. I love that they published a letter from reader Terrianne George who made a cushion inspired by my seaside vanity case in issue 25. I love seeing how other people have been inspired by my designs!
The seaside vanity case which inspired Terrianne's cushion was one of my favourite projects, and has pride of place in my sewing room now (below):
I also made the cards in the current issue, a project which shows off their free papers. These cards had a Mother's Day theme.
I think that's enough from me for now. What have you been making?
