I have today received this from Pam of A New Life in Wales:-
It's the gorgeous Cathedral Windows table topper she made (as an experiment!) the other day. Pam very kindly offered to donate it to someone making a comment on her blog, and I was the extremely lucky recipient. A lovely card came with it too. Pam says it's not perfect.....well, it's not a mass-produced thing churned out in 10 minutes in a factory sweat shop, it's made carefully with thoughtfully chosen pieces, with time and love having gone into it. And that makes it pretty darn perfect in my book.
Pam, it's beautiful, it looks wonderful on my upcycled vintage oak table in our shabby chic dining room and I love it - thank you so much. Bloggers are so kind!
Well, I made a start on sorting the masses of old paperwork in the desk and filing cabinet yesterday. Half filled a carrier bag with things to be burnt, another half full bag of stuff to go in the recycling bin. I found the tax reference I knew was there somewhere amongst the piles of stuff, which enabled me to fill in a form online and send it off, to do with my NI record. Now I've made inroads into the sorting, it doesn't seem so daunting.....I'll finish it off this afternoon.
The cotton yarn I'd ordered arrived yesterday afternoon.....I was very good and didn't open the package until the evening - I did make a start straight away on a new project, I'll post pics in due course.
Chucking it down today, which will do the garden heaps of good (and save OH having to go out and water). Bet the grass will be knee-high come the weekend though....
