I'd great plans for today - MrVV is out driving a lorry so I could happily spend my time doing exactly what I want without him tutting and generally getting under my feet. I'd planned to make my apron for the Apron Swap - it started so well - pattern made, fabrics cut, pinned & hems ironed. Off upstairs to sew - again - going great guns, neck strap, waist ties & pocket hemmed and then *thud* - I ran out of thread! Now I've a rainbow of colours but the one colour I needed I was completely out of :( Normally it would just be a case of heading into town to the haberdashery shop but today is Wednesday & here in deepest darkest Suffolk some shops still close & this shop in one of them :(
Instead I wisely used the time to wrap up 2 parcels for 2 other swaps I'm doing (one for Mel that's 'Good Enough to Eat' & another for Karen that's a 'fabric swap). Now obviously I can't show you want I'm sending them but I can tease them with a pile of wrapped goodies;
Once that was done (girls they'll be in the post tomorrow), I headed into town. I'd seen a mention on a couple of blogs about this months Easy Living Magazine & its wonderful free gift. The first shop I tried hadn't any but the 2nd one came up trumps - I was even able to choose which design I wanted;
Oh yes a free Cath Kidston bag - big enough for days on the beach, Stitch & Bitch or just some light shopping ;) Plus there's a voucher for 15% off - I am tempted by a few things so I might even treat myself to something small ;)
Now best I go and do something domestic before the boys get home from school.
Hurrah its Wednesday - Stitch & Bitch tonight :)
