I sat down to write this post at 7pm - just after the boys departed to their clubs - no I'm not a slow typist - my Mum phoned. Just a quick call! to confirm some arrangements and put the world to rights. Here I am 2 hours later with a slightly pink ear and bowl of cold pudding (Dutch Apple Cake & custard made by Little Son). The funniest thing was said by Mum - she mentioned a lady she'd met at work who'd talked non-stop for the 2 hour session Mum was supervising (she works in a creche) - the phrase pots & kettles ;) It might explain where I get my ability to ramble on about nothing much from ;)
Anyhow back to business - dollies - lots of - well actually 5;
My favourite new photo
The Rainbow Raggy 'Spice Girls'
The 2 newest ones
All 5 of them were delivered to their new home this afternoon - the girls in the shop were having fun with them when I left - dolls were being placed around the till and the shop - here's hoping they sell well and I get to restock very soon. I also left with a request to supply some of my teacup pincushions - I shall be delivering those on Monday.
Spurred on by this I've set myself up with a Folksy shop - when it gets stocked I shall shamelessly self-publisise on here and Facebook ;)
I finally managed to send my swap parcel off to Pene today - hopefully it will be with you tomorrow / Monday :). A knock at the door mid-morning brought my parcel from her all the way from Scotland. Without giving too much away - lets just say there are some similarities ;)
All wrapped up - very springlike - with an extra something special for an event next week
The contents - a lavendar heart, seeds, chicks in tutus, new gardening gloves, choccies, a gorgeous book, a crocheted daffodil (now on my coat) and a lovely tissue holder (wanted one of these for a while). Thank you Pene very much for being yet again a wonderful swap partner:) and Emma I now need to turn my attention to the other Spring swap and get my pressies for EmmaBearForever sorted.
I must go now - we're off to Cambridge (just the 2 of us) this weekend and my MIL is coming to be with the boys. My house is a mess and as tempting as it is to leave it for her/them to sort I really ought to make some effort and find the spare room - moving some of my piles of fabric and half finished makes to one side. I've loads of those I want to show you but will do it another time - mainly as some are for birthday pressies for my S&B friends and of course one of those is Dawn and she might just peak in ;)
See you next week - keep your fingers crossed the weekend is sunny and the CK shop is fully stocked ;)
