Wow another sunny day - cold but sunny. I can see in the borders that the daffs and other bulbs are really coming through thick and fast now. I know we're 2 months away from the official start of spring but these little signs make me hopeful that longer days and less clothing are just around the corner.
When I got back from my CS shift yesterday there was a parcel waiting on my desk. It took me a few moments to remember that it was a recent giveaway win - from Gill the Vintage Gardener. She had a giveaway recently to celebrate her first blog birthday and I was the lucky first name out of the hat. It was a lovely fat parcel and inside there were loads of lovelies;
A felt Stanley(which I shall be hiding from visiting small nieces), some vintage linens (these were wrapped around some of the parcels), some wonderful tags that are just gorgeous, a bookmark, a pretty pin cushion and a picture that is truly lovely. I need to get MrVV to put the picture up in my sewing room this weekend - I love having reminders of blog friends around me whilst I work. Thank you Gill very much :)
I finished knitting with my felting yarn - it ended up making a reasonable sized piece;
I think it will be big enough to turn into a purse once it has fully dried out, had some decoration added and I've battle with putting a zip in!!
As I said at the beginning today has been a sunny one here in Suffolk and this morning I decided to see how sunny it was - the test - getting a load of washing dry on the line outside!!
It worked - here's hoping there's many more line drying days coming up - I love the smell of line dried washing - just have to be careful I sniff a pile of clean shirts rather than a heap of freshly washed boxer shorts!!
Right - back to sewing - having fun with felt & buttons tonight
See you soon
