Well I seem to be coping with the new "dog" - although it was a bit of a shock when I sat down at my desk for the first time and suddenly realised that I actually had to learn a new job! Until that moment all I had thought about was the logistics of actually getting there - childcare, clothes, transport etc.
I must have written about 30 pages of notes which I am in the process of typing up - I'm going to treat myself and make a patchwork cover for a ring binder with a special pocket for my notepad so that I have something pretty to look at and nice fabrics to stroke if I get too stressed!
I've finally managed to upload the photos of some lovely post that I received a little while ago.
First of all a totally unexpected and really beautiful mini-quilt from Kitty!
complete with it's own tiny ladybird! I didn't spot it at first until Dot pointed it out.
Kitty also included some fab ladybird felt and froggy fabric for the little Lockets and a bag of chocolate eclairs but I can't photograph them coz they are ALL GONE!
Thank you so much Kitty - it was such a lovely surprise!
Another fabby piece of post was this card from Charlie.
I had commissioned it for my parents after seeing some of Charlie's sketches - isn't it just brilliant?
Which reminds me that I forgot to show you the crochet hook roll that I made for Charlie a while ago so here it is!
I used some of my most favourite fabrics and made the ties from a tape-measure - making sure I used 21 inches to match Charlie's age.
But I will leave you today with a photo of the fruits of my labours today - my sewing table!!! A massive improvement on this.
