Once again I need to apologise for the state of my photos - my camera doesn't seem to have a flash (it's second hand so I can't really complain) so all my photos at the moment have a horrible soupy yellow quality.
But I have had some lovely things to photograph including some fabby presents from very kind bloggy friends.
The first from Jodie who sent me the very arduous task of pattern testing the lovely Baxter (woohoo! can't wait to get started!) along with this gorgeous make-your-own-bunting panel
(I can see all the printed instructions being included like selvedge in my spiderweb quilt and quilt as you go panels once the bunting is made)
and this adorable tape measure and badge - I'm definitely happy with a world where craft is the new black!
Then this week I received a parcel from the lovely Michelle who had made me this beautiful sewing kit to cheer me up
all I can say is that it worked a treat! I love it!
And I also loved the chocolate and sweeties that came with it!
Thank you both very much xxx
I made a concious effort last week to knit instead of crying and by the end of the week I had a very beautiful sock instead of a manky pile of soggy tissues.
I can't claim that it worked ALL the time but knitting certainly helped and I have now cast on the second sock (don't faint!) and have also cast on this cowl so I have plenty of distraction therapy to hand. So why didn't I knit today instead of feeling sorry for myself? Stupid girl! Off to find that knitting bag............
