Postal Surprise...

This arrived in the post on Friday from my swap partner Janice in America for the Camper Van swap.A funky hat, scarf, two packs of buttons, two balls of wild wool and some shells. Sophie clapped eyes on the hat and scarf and that was it. Got it back long enough to take this picture. She wore it to her ballet lesson this morning and loved it when someone said how much they liked the pink fabric. She more than happy to model for me.
It is the fringing on the ends of the scarf which is really fascinating to Sophie! She saw the shells whilst I was taking these pictures and see what she did.....

"Look Mummy, Woolly Monsters..!" Only kids can do this. May crochet some flowers with this wool, I will have to give it a try.
Also in my post delivery was my Cath Kidston order which I treated myself to. I think I may have found some Christmas ideas too for my family. It arrived very quickly and was fun to open these....
The tins are to store some of my sewing stuff and the bag?........Well, I have a thing about bags so this is my new acquisition to my collection. Some of my bags I have had so long that they have discoloured so an update is needed anyway. Sophie, bless her, has her eye on a few bits in my wardrobe already so it is an investment too (ha ha). It's bright colour will get me through the winter too.
My lovely buttons from the last two swaps will live in my new tin.

Well, the night is still young(ish) so I need to start thinking about my Forrest Quiltie and Christmas Decoration swap work.

Do have a look at my students work just below.

Take care

I love the fabric in that hat. I've recently treated myself to those button and pin tins - think the threads tin will have to be next!

Oh my... the pressure is on! I had something in mind I wanted to make for the swap for "MY" partner [wink ;) wink] but now I keep seeing more and more ideas and I keep changing my mind! Oh decisions, decisions. I might be playing "eenie meenie miny moe" if I keep this up. OK, I've got to go now.....
....eenie meenie miny moe... catch a tiger by the toe....
