Last saturday I had the best surprise - a parcel from the lovely Jessica of Ayenforcraft. I had forgotten that she ws sending me something for taking part in her project ridiculous challenge of last summer. It was a fantastic box of goodies. It cheered me enormously as I am currently in the midst of summer school holiday madness. This is the part of the blog where perhaps I am supposed to be a "cupcake blog" and tell you how heartwarming it is to have the summer holidays, add in some beautifully photographed childrens' activities and wax lyrical about how wonderful my life is. Um...to be honest summer holidays are HARD WORK! We are having fun, but also we are having some humdinger brother/sister arguments, some almighty unphotogenic messes, plenty of olympic watching, lots of conversations where both children talk at me at the same time about different subjects, and not much sleep for me. So, I was feeling a bit worn out, and Jessica's parcel came along and cheered me up mightily. Shall I stop wittering and show you the contents?
|Pretty floral cotton - not sure yet what to use it for...|
|Stripey cotton - I am thinking baby trousers?|
|This is much darker blue then camera shows, linen-y fabric, with gingham binding and three gingham buttons. I am thinking possibly a pair of trousers with piping details.|
|A pair of handknitted socks - they didn't fit Jessica but happily fit me!|
|This gorgeous Anna Maria Horner fabric. I had been admiring this for ages on the AMH blog. Once again, I say breathlessly to my friends, "It's Anna Maria Horner voile". They look blank.|
|Some more cotton fabrics|
|RG trying to get in on the actionA |
A huge thank you to Jessica and I am putting together a return parcel for her!
