SH is always on the road for work and often is in the area where Mum lives. He usually calls in and sees her for coffee or lunch. She has been sick with a flu since she returned from England so he made sure to check on her on Friday to see whether he had to physically escort her to the doctor. Luckily she is a little better so she has a reprieve for a little longer! As he was leaving she gave him a parcel to deliver to me. Inside was some beaded blackberries which I will put on a key on my hallway dresser and two little patchwork, beaded purses, one for me and one for the 'horsey' one. They are gorgeous (like everything Mum makes!). I chose the little blue and pink one while the 'horsey' one has the other which has a very cute dog button on it. We feel very spoilt. Apparently she is now felting away madly and has made us bags today!!!
