High Flyer

Some of you will remember that my Mum managed to fracture both her feet falling down a step at the end of April. You may also remember that I mentioned that having both her feet out of action didn't do much to stop her doing exactly what she always did, including pruning the shrubs and water blasting the deck from her wheelchair a couple of days after her accident. It's been two and a bit months since she hurt herself and she is still in a moonboot for one of her feet. I'd like to show you what she gets up to in this incapacitated state.

She is one high flying Nanna. At least she agreed to strap herself in!

I have another high flyer to show you too. This is a trapeze artist cushion I finished today. She is part of a new range of appliqued cushions I am going to be making to sell at markets and online. Do you like her?

Love the work on the cushion - you could make one with your Mum on the cherry picker, to remember these high flying moments.

i'm noticing a few similarities between you and your mum. to start with, you both apparently find it hard to sit still for long without being extremely productive!
