I celebrated completing my first week at work with a rather nice red wine last night. I may have accidentally had one glass too many and have been feeling slightly less than brilliant today!
Still, we've soldiered on and delivered children to various Saturday activities and friends to the airport and have spent the afternoon in the garden.
Moogsdad is still out there, as are the little beasties - Moog and I got too hot and have retired indoors as we are both ladies and as such don't relish getting overheated and sweaty - not that Moogs sweat of course..... but I couldn't say panty could I?!!!
I may be digressing - unlike me.....
Now, here's a thing.
We know, do we not, that there are many wonderful and very generous people out there in the world of crafty bloggage. I've been on the very lovely receiving end of this generosity already this week with my beautiful picture from Est and my surprise fabric bundle from Monda :)
I was quite blown away this morning when:
a) the postman knocked the door before 10am (he's more of a late afternoon postie!)
b) he handed me a parcel that looked like this when I opened it:
....and inside the most beautiful treasures!!! A delicious bundle of Anna Maria Horner's Chocolate Lollipop fabrics - to top up the one's I stupidly used on Minx's Fairy Mary!!
I have to say a huge huge THANK YOU to my lovely bloggy friend from over the pond, Bethany, who sent me these for my birthday :)
Bethany, I love them and I am particularly moved by your lovely act of kindness and friendship as I know you are having a tough time lately and yet you still always think of others. I'm sending you a big(((((hug))))) across the miles!!!
My fabrics were stroked and cooed over for quite some time this morning and have now been safely stashed and will only ever be used for something very special indeed!! (NO more fairies!)
I finally did a bit of sewing last night....and again this morning...and have finished my mini-quilt for my swap partner :)
A very much enlarged sneaky peak:
I have another to make for Mrs Locket as she endeavours to build her wall of quilts.....one or two ideas are starting to form in my muddled mind and I'll get started soon......maybe......eventually.......
Moogsdad has foolishly invited a football buddy of Monster's round here to play tomorrow. Yep, that's Sunday - my day off! It seems I now have to serve up pizza for Sunday lunch.
I don't really mind, as he's a lovely lad and his folks have recently had to cope with a bereavement so I'm sure they'll appreciate a quiet day - and I'll appreciate Monster being occupied and not constantly bickering with Minx!!!!
I'm hoping for good weather so I can shut them in the garden but the man on the telly said 'rain'. My other plan is to leave it all to Moogsdad as he arranged it :)
I'm now going to ignore my family for a little while longer so I can lurk around in Google Reader catching up on your bloggy doings!!!
