Whenever I do a lot of hand-sewing I end up with a very sore finger with hard skin and lots of little holes from the needle digging into the tip of my finger - ouch! But today I had a break through, I persevered with using a thimble and with lots of support from my friend Bev (Ta) and her thimble (ta again!) I'm now able to sew without pain and blood spots on my work!

I took part in a fete on Saturday in Dalston
http://myspace.com/fete_dalston_oldboysclub , it was an interesting mix of crafts, jumble, poetry, cakes, bubbles, rum punch, and music! I took along some of my bears and these rag dolls that I made a while back. A lovely lady showed interest in them and told me about a great organisation called People in Harmony, check out http://www.pih.org.uk/ it's a 'positive, interracial anti-racist' voluntary, charitable organisation - Thanks Molly!
