I know, I am usually pushing the pedal to the max on a Wednesday, but this week I have swapped my non-working day for Thursday.
Today I had my In-year review at work, I am so 'good', and this afternoon I spent a couple of hours building a machine to recycle plastic bottles into fleece jumpers! OK, so it was only sticking old cardboard boxes, bottle tops and toilet rolls together with dear son and his classmates, but it was good fun; but boy, those Dads are competitive!
Then home for the quick Ballet/Beavers turn around, to be met by a fun parcel from a crazy lady!
A couple of Wednesdays ago I managed to listen to 3 Quilter in the Gap podcasts in 2 days. Obviously I immediately told Rhonda that I surely deserved a medal for such a heroic feat!
Look what I got...
So of course I knew who it was from!
If you are not familiar with my friend Rhonda, then please pop over to her blog, leave her a comment, preferably with at least one word with more than 4 syllables and have a listen to one of her so funny podcasts! Rhonda wants to be a Brit (sometimes!), so I have made it my civic duty to use my British sense of humour to tease her as much as I dare and see if she 'gets it', it makes me chuckle! Rhonda and Rachel are also running the Duo Quiltalong, and I'm sure they'd let you join in and catch up if you wanted to!
Anyway, you probably want to see what was inside...
Look it's got my little house on! And ta-da...
Cool postcard and sweetest mini needle case which I should have taken with me to Ballet this evening; I was sewing hexies and having to use my trouser leg to keep the needle away from those bare ballerina feet!
Thank you again Rhonda, you are such a great lady to know x
For my real day off, I have a school open morning then cakes with the headmaster at the end of the day followed by the school disco where, in some moment of insanity, I volunteered to 'help'! I may get some sewing done, if I do, you'll be first to know!
PS If you want to win yourself one of Kerry's wonderful paper-piecing patterns, pop over to either Ayumi's, Lynne's or Amy's. Look at where a bit of Minchin-love gets me - smack-bang in the middle of the coolest girls, (Cindy, you can be cool too by association!)!
