Baby stuff and quilting goodies
I haven't been completely idle over the last few weeks.
This is for one of my friends who is having her first grandchild.
Although my knitting tends to be purl one knit one drop one. I also made a boy version, just incase, she could have one of each, TWINS... it has been known.
Strange day today, we have them sometimes at the cottage.
I'm not sure if Frank is waiting for the postman here or waiting for Ginger to appear from the other side of the bridge....
Sometimes when the postman comes, bless him he brings such good things from my friends.
I won a one day giveaway from CINDY about a week ago.
Cindy must have her own carrier pigeon because this arrived very quickly.
Ten fat quarters of heavenly quilting material. As well as so many other goodies, I was amazed how much was in the box. It seemed never ending.
When I post any thing, it is normally stuffed into a cat food box... Cindy has put me to shame, and I have seen the error of my ways.
A VERY BIG THANK YOU CINDY....
CINDY has a really beautiful dog, but then I would say that about her dog and not about her wonderful quilting blog..... you can visit HERE .
Other than the great gift from Cindy today,
Frank looks slightly worried here.
This is his fluffy play toy, I really need to get my own feather duster for the cottage cobwebs.
Done the normal supermarket shop.... hum.......
Would have lost the car in the car park if it hadn't have had monkey and the Devon sticker in the windows. I should love it when we change our car.
But it takes me ages to find it in the supermarket car park.
I am still looking for the old one... confused... ?
So pleased to see Monkey. He is swinging from the side window AH BLESS !
If we had a car like this, then I couldn't have made a mistake, this a Ford V8 Pilot.
Not sure, if it's 40's or 50's.
I have to say very classically here, they don't make them like they used too.
Thought you would like to see Tudor Cottage in the village, I wasn't driving, so I tend to snap away merrily in the passenger seat. It was a dull day here today.
There are Catkins out along the back roads from the cottage...
I'm really surprised. To me, they mean memories of school and the nature table. They don't have nature tables at school anymore, do they ?
Busy day, at least it was for us, not for Mew.
Have a good week, we are playing with water in the cottage tomorrow.
Well, lets say one of us is.
If we need a boat I will let you know.
