Thank you so much for all your lovely comments yesterday. The naughty Minx is feeling much much better and is back to her 'normal' self i.e. non stop chatter, lots of attitude, plenty of nagging. She'll be in school bright and early tomorrow!!!!
She's also a very bad influence.
A quick trip to the wool/fabric shop for some additional wool for my ripple blanket resulted in this lot coming home with us!
The top two balls of wool are for the blanket. The bottom two are for a little knitted teddy. I also accidentally bought some very pretty pastel coloured wool roving for some felting projects that are nestled somewhere in my foggy brain.
When we got home Minx flew off to explore the stars in her rocket ship....
.....whilst I finished the sewing on the basset hound pillow. I had a mishap last night when fixing the fabric paint. I managed to scorch the white background fabric with the iron!!
Therefore, he had to be cut out and appliqued to a pink background but I think he looks ok for it!
Whilst quickly nipping into Sainsbury's for a pillow with which to stuff the basset the Minx spotted a few half price bargains:
So - not the best day for my purse! £3 of cheapo acrylic wool ended up costing nearly £15 and £4 of cheapo pillows ended up costing £22.
Thank goodness Minx is better - she bankrupts me every time she's off!!
When we got back from buying pillows etc there was a great big Interlink Express van parked across our driveway.
The man had just tried to deliver something to our house and was about to drive off.
Having spotted me trying to drive through his van to get onto the drive he hopped out and gave me a parcel.
Can you guess what was in it?
Here's a rather exciting clue....
Here's a bigger clue....
The poor man - what must he have thought as I hopped up and down giggling and garbling something about how he'd made my day.
When I got indoors the excitement overwhelmed me and I became so high pitched I could only be heard by dogs and bats!!!
See how excited I look....
Those lovely lovely sewing machine people have sent me a New Baby as the old Baby was obviously incurable.
As you may be aware poorly Baby was returned on Friday by my DHL hero. I can't believe New Baby arrived so quickly.
I made a very quick something to show you just how happy I am :)
