Despite the frost, a long morning at work and the piles of 'things to do' that I have to do, coming home today was really lovely.
I had two parcels, one I had been eagerly awaiting, the other, a complete and utter surprise!
My winnings from Fat Quarterly arrived - some always fantastic Echino fat eighths - thank you Brioni.
The surprise, all the way from Australia, some completely cute gifts for the small folk from wonderful Helen, aka Aunty Henny. Absolutely beautiful ballerina bags for the girls, and a brilliant backpack for dear son, already full of marbles, lego and 'my things' apparently!
What a superb surprise - everyone is completely thrilled and I am totally in awe of Helen's skill. Thank you Helen, you are the best, even though you are in lovely sunny, warm and totally enviable Australia!
Oh, and just to prove that the skip isn't just for show...
Tonight, there's Kirtsie & Phil on TV, and I am going to get on with some sewing. A very happy Monday to you all!
