Phew, it's been another scorcher of a day here and I'm lovin' it!!
I managed to get all the washing dried on the line, makes such a difference doesn't it drying washing outside, it comes in smelling all fresh and I need to iron it straightaway then wash day is over and done with in a day.
The Postie called at the door twice, first with some gorgeous tins from Millie and Dottie's Emporium,
the digestive biscuit tin was given free back in the days of "His Majesty The King"
The little orange tin held children's cough pastilles... both were wrapped in green tissue paper and string with a charming post card.
The second parcel come from Cath Kidson,
I'd ordered some files to keep all my snippets and knitting patterns in,
two are flowered and two have budgies on and they're ever so "tweet"!!
And also a writing set (I do love a letter through the post)
and the best bit was they were all in the sale.
The third parcel I had to collect from the GPO as I was out yesterday,
remember the lovely old "Boots" First Aid Case I got? it now holds a blue "eye wash" glass and a bandage that I got from MY Vintage World in Thirsk, a first aid booklet and some safety pins, it still needs a few more bits to fill it up.
As my Uncle would say, "segwaying" slightly, I've knit 2 poppy brooches for a friend, I think these are to be sold at a fair,
sewn a tiny dress on linen to make into a brooch,
and managed 6 honeycombs out of the millions I need to make a blanket!!
I think that's going to be a looooong job.......
