I'm feeling loads better now though but I thought I had better explain to my lovely followers why I have been absent for over a week!
I have been sewing today and also working on something else. (My sisters wedding present.)
I am really looking forward to the wedding and I hope that she has a wonderful day :)
I received the wedding invitation the other day, it's not long now!
Yesterday would have been my grandma Lily's 97th birthday. It's her first birthday since she passed away last October.
I made a present for her. Well I know I can't give her anything anymore, so I made something for my dad. My dad still misses her a lot, so I made this photo frame that he can put a picture of her and him together in.
What do you think?
My dad absolurely loved it and he can put his favourite picture of him together with his mum in there.
My dad came to pick up the eldest two to take them to stay over for a few days with my parents. They were very excited.
They are going to be having swimming lessons and both of them are finally going to be able to learn to ride a bike!
(Willow has never learned due to her spine. Her legs aren't as strong as other girls her age, and koda refused after he fell off once.)
My parents have managed to find two great bikes in fab condition to reach them. I will be trying to help teach them too from Friday as I am going to stay for the weekend.
When I saw the bike that my dad had been given for Willow I was gobsmacked. It looked just like my old bike!
When I was 12 I gave my bike to my dad's best friend's daughter because I had outgrown it and never used it. I had had many accidents with bikes and I now have a permanent scar next to my eye as a result of one of those accidents.
When my parents sold their house in Leeds, they were given the bike by the same friend. He said he couldn't remember where it had come from and that it had been in the cellar for quite a few years. It wasn't rusty and was well kept. And yes you are right in thinking that IT IS MY OLD BIKE!!
My baby girl (not so much a baby any more!) is going to be learning how to ride the very same bike I learned to ride!! How amazing is that?! I will be taking plenty of photos so I will show you my old bike/Willows 'new' bike!
Talk about refashioning! My dad also found another bike that was a very girly colour, so he has spray painted it black so that Koda can use it. I wish I could ride a bike again. Maybe I will one day!
