Firstly I whipped up my last 5 #xplusalong blocks, then spent some time arranging all 25 on the floor and getting them into nice numbered piles.
I then made my husband a Valentine's present, but that will remain under wraps until next week. Without giving the game away, I can tell you it's a Zakka Man-Style gift!
Then the Postie came with a secret Stitch Tease block from Danny and my loot from Kerry's destash. Wonderful lovely lady that she is, she added in a couple of treats of the fabric variety to supplement my Hoey-love!
And Kerry was also integral in the present that came for my sister yesterday. Having posted an update on all the lovely tea towels Al has on sale right now, I had to have this one...
|This is how I like my animals!|
Back to today, and I snuggled up with a film, Source Code, Sky+ed from the weekend, until pick up time. I don't take time out like that often enough, so I may need to make it a regular habit; unfortunately I lose next week's freetime to an Inset Day swap on friday, but maybe the week after!
With no more ballet; twin 2 decided to leave after Christmas (hurray!) as both girls are now going to Rainbows, and Wednesday Beavers has become Tuesday Cubs, so I was able to get a bit more sewing in before teatime.
My Sew Stitchy blocks are now all sewn together...
I have sashing to add, to take this from 50" square to 60" square, and a backside to ponder. It is so bright and fun, it already makes me really happy.
Tomorrow I will don my metaphorical crisp-lady hat and spend an unpleasant hour at the Key Stage One disco, so please don't expect me to be in quite such a jovial mood when we next cross paths!
