2 motifs in HWT


Continuing along the same 'theme' here are two of the motifs joined.  Again with the green I have used a size 70 or 80 and the same sort of sewing thread.  

You wouldn't believe but the centre of the new one is a variegated yellow, lavender and very pale tan coloured thread and the sewing one is a plain green!!!  It's strange the way it's worked out.  

Sewing is progressing slowly.  The reason for that is mainly cause I've been sidetracked by other things!!!  No, not the dreaded H word but other things!!!

Ah, I'll let you into the 'secret life' of an OG and one of the 'other things' which gets in my 'way' (happily).

Something that I believe passionately in is helping other old people like me get a life online.  I feel it's vital as they can then (hopefully) remain independent (ordering food, clothes etc) in their own homes for longer.  So on a Wednesday morning I teach 'Silver Surfers' (along with 4 other volunteers) in the local library.  I've been doing this for many, many years.

Naturally there are people who you befriend and then I find myself going into their homes to help them there!!!  Nowadays with WiFi in the library they tend to wander in with laptops which makes us able to help them even more.  I love my little 'job' and I love the people I meet.  Part of my approach to teaching them is to laugh a lot.  That's easy.

There you are - that's the 'not a lot else' bit from the title of my blog!!!!

  2. I wonder how many of your silver surfers will become as accomplised as Maggie Smith's character in The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel! - we saw the movie yesterday and loved it.
