I was lucky enough to be chosen by www.madaboutbagsuk.blogspot.com fit a "play it forward" in January. This is where you enter on a blog to have something made for you and then you do the same on your blog. I received my gorgeous package last week from Tracy in England. It is the most gorgeous bag - the quality of her work is very high. Thank you so much Tracy! She also sent some Mudpuddle books by my favourite author Michael Morpurgo , which McDonalds in the UK are giving away with happy meals! Maybe NZ McDonalds might do this one day! And made Middle child a gorgeous football bag for his boots! Middle child writes to her oldest son ! It is very cool.
I do love my apple coasters which i made in under an hour- from a kitset from The Little Craft Shop in Pt Chevalier. I did a needlework class through them learning different stitches on this lively linen tea towel too - lots more work to do!
Love the 2 books from The Book Depository- but boy are their books suddenly taking a much longer time to get to NZ all of a sudden!
And the middle child's jersey needs more wool - even if I did undo huge bits of it and put in stripes!! Sigh!! Learnt my lesson about hoarding wool and not using it for a long time! Always buy at least 8 balls of wool now!!
Off to the framers to get my place names work finally framed! Husband us making shelves for linen room!
