I've had another lovely and self-indulgent day today. This morning I went to see a friend who has recently become a Phoenix Trader - something I once considered doing myself until I realised it was just because I wanted to own all the cards myself!
I knew I was going to be able to buy some lovely cards (and I did) but I also had a sneaky suspicion that there would be something yummy to eat as Jane is a very good cook and made me these muffins a while ago.
I wasn't disappointed - she had made a scrummy ginger cake for today - but once again I forgot to take a photo - sorry everyone!
When I got home,
to this very bare looking hall (with a very bare looking wall just crying out for a collection of mini-quilts from around the world)
I was very, very, VERY excited to discover a special delivery parcel through my door!
I ripped it open, saw who it was from, and then discovered I wasn't allowed to open this bit!
Can you believe it - part of the parcel was addressed to
so I knew I would have to wait for the scurvy bunch of Little Lockets to get home from school before I could see what was inside!
But wait! There was another parcel for me too.............................
And when I opened it I nearly exploded with happiness because look what was inside
A truly incredible mini-quilt from Katy! I love it so much it almost makes me cry with happiness. It is just a HAPPY picture with happy colours and it is MINE!!!!!!!!!
It came with a lovely tag
and a really nice label on the back - complete with a ginger monkey! (ok, so he's black but I know he's ginger inside!)
And FINALLY the children got home so we could see what was in their parcel
gazillions of crafty gorgeousness - designed to set any creative little heart a-flutter! The children were so excited as they "discovered" all their goodies and can't wait to start playing with it all!
Thank you so much Katy - we are a very, very lucky and happy collection of Lockets!
So I will leave you today with a photo of my Quilt Wall with its very first occupant!
See - there's loads more room left!
Have a great weekend everyone - and especially Katy for making me so happy today!
