I love receiving post, especially when it is fabric related but even better when it is something I am least expecting. After a long start to the week yesterday it was lovely surprise to come home to 2 parcels waiting on our doorstep, both of which were a surprise but only because I had forgotten about my late night shopping spree on a new fabric site I had found on Saturday night, the eternal maker. So, yes the first was more fabric, this time some lovely soft flannel ready to try out my new pattern from winter peach on etsy for some slippers I can wear after I have my hip operation (that will be the next big challenge on my list.) The second was an amazing crocheted jar candle from Ali of Mud meddling, which accompanied my feedback form for a pair of trial baby booties Ali’s daughter tested with her wriggly little feet. Thanks Ali, the positive feedback was enough but the little present is gorgeous and has been well tested by me already!
