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.
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!
