It's so long since I wrote anything on here! I'm half-way through making dozens of things, but my eldest child was taken into hospital last week with diabetic ketoacidosis and has been diagnosed as type 1 diabetic, at age 6. It's a huge shock, and a big change as we have to do blood glucose tests 4 times a day now, and give her insulin injections morning and night. We also have to count the carbs in all her foods, and make sure she gets regular meals and snacks to keep her glucose levels steady. Add to that the fact that the baby is teething, and all three children are at home due to the school holidays, and you have an action-packed day. All this means I haven't had time to go near the sewing machine, and probably won't for a few weeks.
