but firstly, you remember the quilt I just finished for Myself. Well it wasn't for myself. It had been planned and executed for Jules in the UK for her big O birthday. It was the most difficult secret for me to keep. When we wrote I would just pretend to ignore the word 'birthday'. She knew nothing about it and I even had to send an email to her son to find out the exact date. And would you believe I posted it on Saturday 26th March. and she received it on Saturday 3rd April. Well done Australian Post and The UK Royal Mail. Maybe they consider Jules amongst their Royalty. Here is a photo she sent me.
Happy Birthday Jules ~ Big 'O's last for at least two weeks.
Today we did our weekly shop, usually done on Monday but because of the Easter break we went today.
But I warned The Scot .... we were going for runners for him.
Now trying to get The Scot to buy clothes is virtually impossible. I could tell many a tale, YES he is spoilt, but the problem is - you have to start out how you mean to carry on. And its too late now to unspoil him.
These are his old runners.... which according to him .... they are fine will last at least 5 more years.
He just can't understand how things increase in price.
But with my diligence and running back and forth with different sizes, and the look of....... decide or else... on my face. We managed to find some.
On the sewing scene, I have got over my lethargic feelings of last week and we are off again. I have two quilts in the process for hand sewing. And plans are made for my Next Postcard Swap - the theme being Flowers.
