Brilliant!  Good sewing too  ;D   It does seem to be causing smiles amongst the staff at Gilbert Bain too  :thumbsup: :trophy:

Cheers folks - I'm still sewing!  :thumbsup: I was shocked to learn the staff had to change clothes if they went on a different ward - well in a small hospital like we have that could be several times a day! No wonder the laundry people couldn't keep up. Wonder if any other hospitals will start a sewing trend.

Estimated number of WWII civilian deaths across the world (according to one statistic) is almost 35.5 million poor souls:  estimated total of WWII deaths is just over 55 million people !!

Thank goodness we are not in the middle of WWIII then ! 
Obviously I'm looking for positives and, to me, that seems to be one of them.

Around 10mln were polish citizens btw.

Spanish flu in 1918 (just after the world war 1) killed more than 50mln people! More people died than during the war itself!

I was going to press the "Like" button, but a Like didn't seem appropriate.  Thanks for the stats though macgro7.

I'm not sure if facebook will let me paste in a link from their page so if you want to check out  fb Shetland Scrubs, lots of info on there. Last time I looked they had been inundated with fabric - I've just finished sewing my last set so will now try and get back to normal ( ???) as the sewing has taken over my life and my house :o
