It's all about the needles around here

We are all dealing with more needles in this house than you can shake a stick at.

Frank's new regime involves lots more testing, lots more injections and lots more stress for me as I struggle with the reality that is T1D in a three year old.

His papa is also getting more stress as he tends to be the large slow moving target I fire at when I'm under stress.

Poor man. I love him so.

However, being snowed in has meant that we have done many more crafty things and far from being put off by needles Frank has been learning to sew. I bought the cloth at the wool shop recently and he is loving using up all my second hand acrylic wool that I refuse to knit with!

He loves painting and colouring too and so we have been doing a fair bit of that too.
I intend to move onto felting soon, but feel I should attempt it alone first!

My husband,, is already a fabulous felter, having shrunk a number of my prized wool cardigans. Maybe I should ask him his secret?
