I still need to knit his helmet and the breast pockets, then it's time for the finer details of his buttons, cap badge and belt buckle. It's those fine details that will bring him to life, I always leave the face until last, which I like to think is when he's born.

Just lately I'm getting more than a little annoyed with receptionists giving me bad information.
Like the receptionist in the Physio Department telling me I didn't need physio after a Knee Replacement, when I phoned as I'd not heard from them for two weeks after my operation.
I got straight on the phone to PALS the patient liaison people. The next day a Physio phoned me apologising for the error, I'd been overlooked, and was given an appointment that afternoon. I was also informed the receptionist was educated she should have connected me directly to the Physio Department, not told me I didn't need physio.
Receptionist don't know everything, even if they like to think they do. if they give you conflicting advice from the Dr's then go higher up the chain to get things done.
It really does work.
Hope you all have a great week crafting, I'll be linking this post to Creative Mondays and Handmade Monday.
