A bit of a catch up


I'm sorry that I haven't been posting very much over the summer. My holiday has been dominated by hospital appointments and endless tests. I still don't have a diagnosis, but am hoping that a few of the real nasties have been eliminated. I'm not returning to school this week as I'm not well enough, and that feels very strange; I feel guilty that I'm not going to be there but know that I need to be sensible and follow medical advice until I'm better. I don't feel like I've done a great deal other than sleep in between times but here's a snapshot of summer chez josiekitten. xxx


My first ever proper manicure! The name of the polish is 'Princesses Rule'!



Lots of Flo time 😊





A walk by UEA Broad



The start of a new secret project ...




Sewing a cute kitty project bag



Buying some West Yorkshire Spinners sock yarn in the special Marie Curie colourway to knit socks for an Instagram friend to give all the patients in a Marie Curie hospice.



Chips by the sea before a hospital appointment



Helping a friend sew a new bandana for her dog!



A brief stroll around the walled garden at Felbrigg Hall



Helping a friend to make her first patchwork quilt and cushion.



Comfort knitting at the hospital

Lovely to hear from you and to see you’ve been keeping busy. Let’s hope for some positive news soon though Flo would probably like you to stay home with her as long as possible.

Hi Helen thanks for the catch up I’ve been wondering how you are ❤️ Have missed seeing your posts in the mornings on Instagram of yours and Flo’s adventures, so have really enjoyed your patchwork and quilting updates. I really do want to have a go, it’s on my very long list�� Sorry to hear that you’ve not had the best summer hols and it must be strange not returning just yet. Hope you may soon have some answers and start to feel stronger. Take care of yourself and crack on with that secret project I await with interest ����❤️❤️
