Thanks girls. big_hug

Jan, I have been making it over the last two months in total, but sewing isn't my usual hobby, so it was probably longer than anyone else would take to make it!

Also making other little pillows too - I didn't have sufficient pink fabrics initially, so carried on making others. Though once it began to come together, I concentrated on just the pink journal, and then couldn't wait to see the finished result!

Last week, while at DD's house, she presented me with a hardly-worn nightshirt, which I am currently attempting to rearrange into two nightshirts for little grandson.

Mmmm, not as easy as I'd hoped ! eeek

I will get there in the end, but  ......... smile

The mention of night shirts has tickled a memory of some fabric stashed away.  If I ever find it Val, you shall have it.  (I know your address...)

I'll try that again!

Um, yes...When we eventually meet, as we must, remind me of the nightshirt...ponder

 

Now look, I went to meet Danuta by train.   (OK little intervention by D and his  driving thing) but it means that I can get to places by taxi and train so I should be able to get to you?   What do you think?  Autumn, maybe?

I'll try that again!

Oh bugger...I have just been finishing off some wine and now you want me to think of travelling..

 

I will say though that D arranged everything and took my luggage almost a week before I left so I felt like the Queen - my luggage left before me - and, I do like train travel.  Um.

I'll try that again!
