This week as you will all have heard we lost one very special part of our WOYWW gang to cancer so it is with a heavy heart I'm writing my blog today. Shaz was loved by us all and the world is now missing a wonderful lady. We blogged together for many years before we actually met at the crop in Wales so by then I was meeting a true friend....and I was not disappointed. She was warm and loving and everything I had grown to love....and of course she came with Doug, her devoted, caring hubby. We gelled immediately and enjoyed to many giggles together including meeting up at the Salop Caravans craft fair in Shrewsbury to enjoy lunch together.
I will really miss Shaz's blogs, everything from her enabling to her 'and finally' each week. I will also miss her following my little sewing business and liking and sharing the different things I put on my Facebook page....she really did help my business grow when we moved to our new bungalow and for that I will always be grateful. Rest in peace Shaz....and Doug never forget you are part of our gang too and we are here for you always.
I'm a great believer in keeping busy when I'm feeling sad so I do have a few things to share with you today...
Theo has been enjoying some U-tube videos about a little mouse called Theo so I made him his own little mouse to play with. I found the pattern on Pinterest and reduced the size of it to make it a little hand sized mouse....I put pipe cleaners in his arms and legs so he could bend them into shape.
I had a request for a memory bear this week...it's for a little girl who has moved into the area to remember the happy times at her old school in Skegness.....that's another new school to put on my list.
The best bit is she loved it so much that she's ordered two more....and that's what I will be doing today :-)
Our son, Mark, has asked me to make him a fox for his birthday so here he is waiting for his clothes.....they will have to wait until I've finished the memory bears [work much come first of course].
I had to wait for a delivery of felt before I could make the fox and I also ordered the felt to make the deer....I've already started making her so you will see her soon I'm sure....she's rather tricky with lots of little pieces to put together plus I have to needle felt some spots on her.....fun times.
That just leaves me to say if you leave me a little message I will do my best to pop over to yours later.
