We very much hope you are safe and well. I am sorry I’ve not been round very much recently on the blog, things have moved so fast these past few months. In March, as the UK entered lockdown, Mum noticed symptoms of cancer returning, and became very poorly. Just as 5 years ago, I went to stay and care for Mum in her own home.
While I’ve not been doing much sewing recently, I’ve been revisiting an ever growing pile of UFOs. The saying on this little applique block seems to ring so true right now. Made in January 2016, it’s available as a free download from Honeybee Cloths here.
Our little hive (the shop) has been in very good hands, while I’ve been caring for Mum. Andrew’s been packing and sending pre-cut orders, and unpacking lots of lovely sewing supplies, new to our shop….
Four months on and thankfully Mum is responding well to chemo, her 5th session is next Tuesday. The symptoms have eased, and side effects of chemo are under control. We are so very grateful the tests (CT scan and 2 biospies) went ahead, and treatment begun – we really are counting our blessings and holding onto positives.
The photo below is from four years ago, a few months after Mum’s chemotherapy in 2015 – Mum, Dad and myself visiting the daffodils in Newent woods.
We are so looking forward to sharing lots more forthcoming fabric releases, coming soon to Honeybee Cloths. Plus a new free quilt block pattern, coming soon So please be sure to pop back soon, we are so looking forward to having you along.
From our little hive to yours, take care, keep well and happy sewing,
Dawn x X
