I've got quite a bit of stitching done this week in and amongst the taxi-driving
I've appliqued an entire panel of sunflowers for the garden quilt - this is the back of a recycled man's shirt so you can see how big these flowers are.
Sarah has spent plenty of time in the car this week.
Tuesday evening saw me taking her up to Bristol for her TDG (Talent Development Group) rugby training.
Nigel drove her over to Northampton on Friday for her England Colleges trial.
I took her down to Plymouth for Regional training again yesterday - she's subsequently heard she's in the starting 15 for the first Regional match next Sunday which is exciting enough.
But the most delightful news this week is that she has been selected for the England Colleges squad. She is the youngest in the squad at only 16 years and 7 months and because of this will not be able to play all the matches especially those against the older opposition teams.
But I know she will be so proud to pull on that white shirt (incidentally this isn't Sarah but a member of the existing England Ladies team - the picture is courtesy of the RFU website).
It's not quite her ultimate ambition - that is to play for England Ladies at Twickenham - but another big step along the way...................... and all in spite of that thumb :o)))
