Hello. I'm still here. Just thought I'd check in and let you know that I haven't dropped off the face of the earth, I'm just struggling with anything creative at the moment as my mind is still very much preoccupied with "Joe stuff". We're all fine, and he's happy but I am finding the whole palaver of trying to get the appropriate help for him in school to be extremely draining. Long story short - our request for statutory assessment was turned down, we are going to apply again but in the meantime his teachers are telling me on a weekly basis that he needs more help, but it could be 6 months or more before he gets it, if at all. All incredibly boring and frustrating and it has left me wondering if he might be better off being home schooled. Not a decision I would take lightly, but it's a possibility.
In the meantime, I've been unable to focus much on anything else - hence no blogging and no sewing either. However, hopefully that is going to change as I got my partner allocation for the Mouthy Stitches swap at the weekend, so that will be good to have something to take my mind off all the other stuff! It's a secret swap, so I obviously can't reveal who I'm making for, but I have done a bit of stalking and am starting to form a few ideas about what to make.
This morning I had a little rummage around in the fabric cupboard and came up with this selection - purple linen teamed with some of the Outfoxed prints by Lizzy House. Even if my partner shows no interest in this, I will probably make something with it anyway, as I think they go beautifully together!
have a great week
