So here I am, 3 months after the last post. Just 10 days after that post, so full of the joys of no builders, I lost my Dad. We knew he was very ill, but still it was a shock, as these things always are. And now I'm here caught between normality and grief, not really knowing what to write, but not able to stop because that feels worse, like pretending it didn't happen. But it did. And life goes on. Falteringly somedays, but on nonetheless it seems.

And I'm not ready to give up on blogging and stitching, and this is afterall a craft blog, it's just well hidden. Stealth craft. But it's still there, bubbling underneath as always. And sewing is like therapy for the soul, creating something from nothing. Dad would have liked that. Though he would have used a hammer and big nails. And less vintage lace.

I'm very sorry to hear about your Dad. It's a difficult sad time.
I lost my Dad four and a half years ago, very suddenly...and through the grief knew he wouldn't want me to give up on those things I held dear.
Now I can smile at my thoughts of him, though I still miss him dearly, and think of what he'd have made of my creating, and remember his...

Oh Sharon, so sorry to hear that. If there is anything I can do to help, just let me know. Hammer, big nails... not too sure about the vintage lace, but I am near Nottingham after all...!

Glad tho' to have you back here having wondered so often about how you were doing.

Love to you... does that mean Big Bigski and Big Smallski?!
