ANOTHER MOUSE FOR CAITLIN

  Firstly a big thank you to everyone who has left messages during the past month , they have been much appreciate. we have come through one month with no dramas- no dash trips to emergency dept at hospital. And  today 's blood test was a good reading. Paul is now having blood transfusions every two weeks and although they will not cure the problem ( leukemia) it is hoped that they will improve his quality of life.
 There was one very special moment for me this week... Caitlin our youngest grand daughter turned 15. along with her birthday gift I had added  another little mouse to her embroidery set made for her previously.( This photo is some of her set)



The new piece was a floss ring tag  and  having said thank you grandma for the embroidery she stood there and just  fingered the thread cards I think she knew just how long and how much precious energy  it took her Granddad  to cut them for her, he has also promised her the embroidery thread to put on them but she needs to decide for herself what threads and what colours.



I found floss ring tags through seeing them on peoples blogs and they are one of the most useful things I have and Í now have several. That is just one example of how through the world of blogging one gains new ideas and inspiration.  I do enjoy reading your blogs and seeing what wondeful designs you have found and have stitched. Thank you everyone for your sharing.

I always enjoy reading your blog and have to say that the floss holder you made for your granddaughter along with the floss rings your husband cut is just adorable. I know your granddaughter will treasure the set forever. I have my grandmother's sewing machine and found an old measuring tape along with needle sets from the 50's and to me, it is priceless. I do hope the transfusions enhance your husband's quality of life. Blessings.
