Long silence

My apologies to thos of you who were worried.  I’ve had Post-natal Depression (surprisingly common, it seems) but thanks to some medication and some very good counselling I’m a lot better now.

Knitting has stopped completely.  First because I really couldn’t do anything, and now because it’s a lot quicker to get something made for Frances on the sewing machine.  My knitting isn’t fast enough to keep up with her growth rate!

I’ve also been doing some sewing for me with the help of the online community at Pattern Review (you can sign up for a free membership).  I started with some basic T-shirts, and have now managed a pair of corduroy trousers.

The pattern is from a Finnish magazine called Ottobre Woman – like Burda but with a wider range of body types and ages.

  1. hey, Frances looks fantastic! And the trousers look good too!

    I must apologise, I just assumed you were busy rather than depressed. I’m glad everything’s going better now though. Will keep you in my thoughts.

  2. Absolutely wonderful to have you back! And what a grown-up, beautiful daughter you seem to have acquired! Please stay with us.

    Love, Jean

    Hugs,
