My condolences too Fran, stop beating yourself up about not being there, you have done so much for your Nan and Grandpa over the years, so just try remembering all the good times you have had with her in the past.  Perhaps now her sons will now step up to help with the final arrangements.

Look after yourself and think nice thoughts.

Aw @Francesca  , many hugs and condolences.  You were amazing to her when your Nanny was alive, and she would have known how much you loved her.  Take care of yourself xx

My sincere condolences @Francesca. Don’t feel bad about not being there when she passed away. You were there for her when she lived, and were with her in your thoughts.

I have a rush job to finish today...a day that is one of the hottest this year (35-36C) in a studio where I do not have AC in the workroom.

I am cheating with it: instead of bagging all the lining back, I am just going to hand hem it all.  The client knows, and after cutting off 17" of hem PLUS a cathedral train (this is not a wedding dress, rather a prom one), I just am at the point with time, Chinese import and weird tacking to make the lining lay smooth on the inside I need to do some easing, so hand sewing for the win.

Just been to The Tip, which is always a bit of a challenge as it is divided into so many different sections that it is easy to chuck your rubbish into the wrong skip and get shouted at. Had to smile (in a very unkind way) when the lad in the next car to us heaved a huge cardboard box out of his boot and the bottom of it fell out spilling lots of small stuff everywhere!

The lads at my local tip - sorry 'recycling centre' are great, really helpful about pointing you to the right skip and even helping if you have several different things to dispose of.

Condolences Fran.
Try not to beat yourself up about not getting there, I'm sure she knew how much you cared for her.

After bridal season, several antique car liners and general "I don't clean up" I'd be afraid to post my sewing room.

Afternoon. I just got back on the train from my weekend away in Canterbury for my friend's 30th. A very fun pub crawl through our old uni town which started and ended with a BBQ (and fresh made pizzas in the garden pizza oven).

I was due to go and see my Nanny tomorrow, as a way to say a final goodbye to her as we were told she had days or maybe weeks left. Unfortunately she died yesterday at about 1pm. I was at my friend's BBQ when I got the call. It was very tough and I'm sad I didn't get to see her again this week but it is what it is. I was quite upset at the party but what can you do. I didn't want to leave and go home and be sad there, so I carried on and we had a good time. I felt guilty at some points for having a good time considering the current situation but I didn't know what else to feel. I don't think it's really hit me yet.
