In my last post, I wrote about making something for a young servicewoman who had no family to send her mail while she was on active duty.
Someone else is kindly making her a quilt, and today I mailed her a box of appreciation: this laundry bag in her favourite colours with her initials on it, and some tasty snacks to relieve the monotony of shipboard meals. I’m told the food’s actually pretty good, but you don’t have access to a lot of snacky stuff, so that’s what she’s getting… So now she’s getting at least two parcels from ‘home’ while she’s on operations. Which is good.
I have one more small sewing job to do, and then with much reluctance I have to finish packing up my sewing room. I just know there’ll be something I urgently want to do or fix or mend the minute I’ve taken all the boxes to the storage unit. Too bad…
