....I have had a sick child home from school and have made use of this lovely old wooden tray a lot. Caitlin developed "Croup" on Wednesday morning although the good parents we are we sent her off to school anyway. That afternoon she had completely lost her voice and her appetite, was very tired and had the tell tale "Croup" cough. This is the second time she has developed "Croup" in a year and she now has an 'inhaler' for when she can't breathe so well. In a way it was a welcome relief to have Caitlin not feeling well as it reminded us that her and her older sister do really love and care about each other no matter how much they argue and fight. The empathy and concern on Amelia's face when she came home from school on Thursday, and asked how Caitlin was, was plain to see. Today they are back to themselves, teasing, arguing and fighting over the little things in life.
In between looking after Caitlin and doing housework I have managed to snatch some time to sew some lovely 'Bliss' together. I was originally going to sew these 6 inch blocks together into 12 inch blocks but they just weren't looking that great so now I think I'm going to frame each one with a different coloured solid fabric. I have completed another 12 blocks since taking this photo and hope to get whole lot more sewing done tomorrow in between acting as the peacemaker for my daughters who in times of need do actually help each other out :)
