So this week the mailman can carry this off to Little Brother who will hopefully put it to good use and not chortle that the bees look like blowflies.
Cute little tables covered in vintage textiles with hand embroidered linen napkins and cooking like Grandma used to make. Fabric covered lampshades, menu cards in sweet little quilted covers. All of this surrounded by woollen yarns and tempting knitting patterns. Perhaps it was fortunate that she sported a Vision Impaired badge and was therefore legally unable to see and be tempted to purchase yet more yarn :-) Down the stairs was a treasure trove of quilting fabrics. Just as well I have a to-do list for 2014 and so was not be tempted to acquire.
Last night I started the first Christmas ornament for 2014 - as a stop gap until my floss order arrives from ABCStitch. I ordered the floss at the beginning of November and on Friday had an email to say it was being dispatched. What an excessively long turn around time. I shall be pleased when it arrives and I can make a start on The Mermaids Chest.
Now I am off to pick beans and Sweet Peas from the garden. Tonight we are having salmon sushi for dinner and after that my car needs a wash. With that today's list should be complete.
