Lena, sorry about your daughter's diagnosis. Diabetes is awful. My sister and her oldest son are type 1. Sometimes it's a scare that puts one on the path to health. Good for her sticking with her vow and losing the weight. Well, once the kids are grown-ups, they don't think they need to listen anymore. I know I don't listen to my mom anymore. Then again, she's stuck in the 70's as far as nutritional advice.
I've finally finished all the critters I'm going to re-make. I decided that the black pegasus could just languish unfinished. I dislike sewing the black felt. All the other pegasus are in the shop. If someone really want's a black one they can message me.
Next project is to make a new purse. The one a made a couple of years ago is an over the shoulder bag. Now that I'm using the walking sticks, the bag just slips off and drops. The strap is too short to be a cross body bag. I've been using a very old (more than 20 years old) purse I bought that is a small backpack style. But, it's getting quite thread-bare. I was going to draft pattern pieces to re-create it. It's not straight seams. Every seam is either an angle or a curve. I could do it - make the pattern pieces thru careful measuring and adding seam allowances. However, I think I'll just design something for myself that is made of rectangles of fabric. It'll get done sooner that way.
