I'm feeling much more 'normal' again today - no more pithering and faffing - today I have been pootling and bimbling.
In case you're wondering what on earth I'm talking about now,let me just say that a pootle and a bimble is a much gentler and far less frustrating thing to be doing than a pither or a faf which ,by their very nature, fill one with a certain amount of pent up frustration and angst.
Hope that's clarified it for you ;)
So today's pootley bimbley stuff has included a bit of going to the post office, a bit of a pop into the fabric shop for interfacing and bunny coloured wool, and inevitably a bit of playing with the sewing machine :)
The very sassy Minx has been invited to her friend's for tea tonight. This was a lovely unexpected invitation from a little girl that Minx likes a lot, whose house she has never been to before.
I thought Minx might like to give her a little Easter gift to say thank you:
After yesterday's Easter egg basket pither I have become rather keen on things fabric-baskety. With more ideas running round my head than I care to admit I had to try out a notion I had for using one of Minx's recent drawings of a little bird.
I can now think of a million uses for these babies all round the house and have half a dozen cut out ready!!
I didn't even hear the postman as Moog didn't alert me to his presence on her territory. Yesterday's walk did the trick as the poor old dear has slept and remained bark free for most of the morning!
When I checked the postbox I found a package with some very pretty Easter stamps :)
I was so excited as I knew it was something special I had ordered from Syko's gorgeous etsy shop.
I have admired Kajsa's beautiful work for quite some time now. With the proceeds from a recent sale in my shop I decided I should treat myself to something very special indeed.
Not one but two of Kajsa's delightful fabric houses :)
She even sent me a gorgeous postcard of one of her appliques :)
They've found a home for now on our Easter twiggy thing:
There's a bit of a theme developing here - shame about Moogsdad's ugly great motorbike just outside the window!
Although I know the recipient will be blogging this soon, now that I know she has received it I thought I could show you the vicious chicken (clue!!) I made on Monday ........I bet you'll never guess who I made it for!!!
I must now take my leave as I am on library duty at school and then must take my lovely son out to buy his friend a birthday present.
As Moogsdad should be arriving home in the wee small hours of tomorrow morning I am making no plans to blog this weekend. As he's been away all week I supposeI should actually spend a bit of time with him and the babies.
I hope you have a lovely Easter weekend whatever you are doing. In fact you'd better, or you'll have to answer to the chicken!!
