In my world pootling is just whiling away the hours, usually I manage to get loads done without it registering. At the moment the hours are weighing a bit heavy. There is still enough pain in my shoulder to restrict me but it is getting better. I managed to get all my various parcels sent off today, I walked back in from my trip to the Post Office, only to see the small pile of cards that should have been in the parcels on the table.
Rats, Rats and double Rats.
I am itching to get busy, I even miss housework. I did manage to clean some glass this morning but pushing the vacuum around is a no no.
My home has never been so tidy, I can not sit and see clutter right now so steadily it is being sorted and either disposed of or put away.
I have printed some patterns off for the Dress a Girl drive, I am intending to make as many pairs of shorts as I can, both for boys and girls, once I am able. I have pulled a pile of fabric ready and there is a drawer full of elastic to hand.
I looked at the pillow case dresses but decided to sew skirts on to tee shirts, I read on the website that these cover the shoulders and this is a bonus for the girls. I will be putting pockets on the dresses and hopefully will make a bag to go with each one.
I have made quilt blocks and sent off disaster areas in the past but want to do something just for children.
I do send clothing to Swansea for the homeless when I have a turf out but that is obviously for adults.
Despite the painkillers which normally knock me out I am still wandering around half the night.
Typing also hurts so I am cutting this short and heading for bed.
