Crafty Nana

I went out this morning to visit a friend whose sister passed away yesterday. Desperately sad situation. She wasn't old and in the space of less than a month went from being relatively well, to being diagnosed with cancer and then passing away. It's all happened devastatingly quickly. I only hope that in time the shell shock will pass and that the speed of events will be a comfort to loved ones.
While I was with my friend, a mutual friend arrived to express her condolences and offer her support. Whilst I was not the recipient of support on this occasion, (although I've had my fair share in the past), I felt pleased for my friend that there are lots of people who care and that I too belong to that same supportive community. We all moan at times, but when the chips are down.....
When I went out the kitchen table was covered in art stuff, glue and various pieces of Miles' art work on reams of lining paper. I returned home to find that not only had nana cleared the place up, but she had also made fabric table runners and napkins. I love them and only hope they look like this way for some time. Not sure how likely that is in this house with tomato ketchup monsters in residence.

I hope our friend is as ok as she can be. I'll drop her a line again today to let her know we're all thinking of her.
