ooooh more gifts!

I’ve been very spoiled in recent days, with friends wishing me well, and spoiling me with gifts to keep me busy while I convalesce.

Avis knows I’m trying to build up a stash of the entire colour-range of Stylecraft DK Special, so she sent me 5 new colours for my collection (Walnut, Jaffa, Matador, Royal & Plum) and 2 packets of Trimits safetly eyes for future amigurumi.  And Pascale, a neighbour, popped round with a box of “Mon Chéri” chocolates.  I do love a “mon chéri” – naughty, but nice.

Then yesterday the postie had to ring the bell, because mail was too bulky to push through the letter box slit.

And what did I find?  A parcel from Sandrine, containing all I need to keep me happy with some colouring in.  A “Christmas Sweater” colouring book, and 5 different bookmarks, plus a brand new packet of felt tip pens.  Well I certainly have lots to stop me from getting bored!

Oh and another parcel . . . but something I treated myself to.

star fabric

Pelenna Patchworks were having a little bit of a fabric sale on last week and I fell in love with this print.  It’s from the “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” collection.  It was only £6 a metre, so I grabbed 2 metres.  As I’ve already mentioned, I’m going to become a grandma in August.  I will definitely be making a small quilt and these stars will be the main fabric to work with for that.  We won’t know if Baby Viking is a boy or girl until the big day.  I reckon this fabric is suitable for either.

In the meantime, I am continuing to lounge around indoors, putting my feet up as often as possible.  On 3rd May I go back to see the surgeon to have bandage and stitches removed, plus an xray to make sure bones are healing well.  Fingers crossed!
