Our week started off very positively. Alan made another rustic mirror. They have been selling very well lately. I finished off some new Kumihimo necklaces. Discover Downunder filmed segments to be aired in June. Craig Lowndes of Team Vodaphone, a V8 Supercars was out participating in the filming. He learnt how to use both the marudia and takadai. While I’m out on the verandah with Craig Alan answers the phone. It was Mum’s neighbour telling us that Mum had a fall and they were waiting for the ambulance. Mum is now in hospital with a pelvic fracture. This morning I finished Term 1 of our Saturday Morning Children’s Classes.We had lots of bits and pieces to finish off and somehow we got through it in the hour and a half. While we were waiting for the last girl’s Mum to pick her up I gave her my full sized marudai to braid on.We haven’t done kumihimo since week 2 but she didn’t miss a beat. She didn’t even need me to remind her how to do it. She is wearing her fabric charm bracelet.
It was a nice way to finish off the morning. Time to ring some relatives.
