Madeit store and an explanation of sorts.

Ok Just thought I would let you all know that I have been listing in my Madeit Store again. I will be adding even more over the coming days as I get more opportunity to take more photo's and upload them to the store.

I have been a little absent (and possibly absent minded) of late due to the crazy first six months of the year. To start the year both my husband and I had surgery (this after all the floods) and in May we did it all over again, this time less than 24 hours apart! Nothing quiet like caring for your husbands needs whilst trying to recover from abdominal surgery!

A week later we got another shock, well ok if you have met my little boy you will know it is not that big of a surprise. Mr T was diagnosed has having High Functioning Asperger's Syndrome. It explained so much our son and suddenly his little quirks and outbursts all made sense.

As his main carer there was a lot to do in this last two months. From organising therapies to finding Early intervention programs for toddlers. But also dealing with other peoples reactions to this news. Some people were positive about it, others gave us a hard time and questioned the professional diagnosis which was very hurtful and insulting in many ways.

So for some reason I lost my sewing and creative mojo there. (Now I just can not imagine why or how it would leave me like that!) But over this last few days I think it is returning to me. So hopefully in the coming weeks, especially as our new family routine settles, my creative juices will be flowing like a river again and new and wonder full items will start emerging from my sewing rooms.

I also have to once again appologise for not being at The Handmade Expo on the weekend, as I had woken up quiet ill Saturday morning. Hopefully all will be well and I will be back next month!
