I very rarely post about current news events but this story has me worried. A lot of people in the UK have been wondering why Ellie Yarrow-Sanders fled with her son Ollie during family court proceedings for custody. Mainstream papers haven’t published the letter she left to her family in full. I found it here. I can fully understand now why she fled. She was only 18 and he 37 when their relationship began and he controlled every aspect of it.

There is a petition site asking that her full letter be allowed to be published.

There is also a link as her ex partner Patrick Sheridan is now targeting her family with court action.

End of year makes

I hope you had a Merry Christmas and will have a Happy New Year! Welcome to my naughty corner. This is where I sit when I have to rest up from overdoing things. The Tree of Life Afghan is the perfect companion to my oak and rowan cushions. This project was made with the very last balls we moved into the cottage with. Goal achieved! I have used up all my old yarn! I tried to make Attic 24's Moorland blanket from stash yarn instead of her perfectly balanced yarn selections. A bit too much pink! Luckily son saw the sunny side this Christmas. He had it draped over him at his computer when I popped in to his house today. Yes he has moved out of here and is living with his sister who has finally joined us in the Forest! I am so happy that we are all together again less than a mile apart. Lily Pond leftovers made these little mug hugs, Buttons from stash. Son didn't know what they were initially so tried a wrist and an ankle. I really wish I had photos of that! Chortle!

Tweedy Halloween

I finally finished my 1940s tweed jacket. I was inspired by The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society film outfits. The book was even better and led to me trying to eat with ration quantities this week. The fabrics were both vintage stash ones. The only thing I had to but was shoulder pads.  Another Cathedrals cushion cover has been  finished.  I saw Terry Pratchett’s Death Rat in a shop window display for Halloween. I had to take a photo.
Happy Halloween!
