Good evening out there. Hope you had a good weekend.
Let me start by saying I have had mahooosive problems with Blogger this week so if I haven't commented on your blog it's NOT me honest it's piggin Blogger. I have tried to comment but it takes me straight back to log on. I believe from Ravelry messages, others have had the same problems with commenting on my blog.
Here in the UK it has been a Bank Holiday weekend which means we all get Monday off! It has been shockingly bad weather so the Tickety-boo family had to cancel our planned weekend away to The Gower in Wales by the sea. I am so glad we did though because it's been" blowin a hooley!" , persisting it down and bloody freezing. It was brighter this evening so we went for a walk before the Littlies got their pjs on a I am glad we did. The smell of damp grass was lovely.
You can just see the roof of my cottage through the trees. Now I know why there was sheep poo on my drive this morning!
I still can't show you some of my projects because the charming postie of my swap partner, kindly took her parcel back to the sorting office instead of delivering it to her so she cannot get her parcel until Tuesday!
Boo to you postie!!!!!! But what I can show you is the parcel the amazing Craftroom2010 sent me.
I was sooooooooooooooooo excited when I got home on Wednesday after a pretty crappy time at work to see my parcel waiting at my door. Woo-hoo!
Oh My Giddy Aunt look what was inside!
I was spoiled beyond belief! As were the Littlies with personalised notebooks, pencils and card games.
That Regia is to die for. Can't you see a new pair of socks on my chubby little porkers as we speak?????
I was mega tempted to have them cast on by now but in my recent bout of startitis I promised myself The Perfect Cardi (more of that in a mo) before they go on the pointy sticks of doom! There was beautiful hand made cards, gorgeous stitch markers, a lovely hand made book, handmade bag, lavender heart, vintage buttons and did I mention scrummy Regia yarn? Oh I did!
Well it's so good I'll say it twice. What a lucky girl I am. I am totaly delighted and couldn't ask for more.
I have released The Perfect Cardi from the naughty bag and cast the devil back on! So far so good. It seems to be behaving thus far. I have got 41 rows and third ball of yarn in
and I am pleased with the results although I think moss stitch is going to get quite tedious soon but..............but it's going to be worth it!!!!!! (this time I am employing the use of a lifeline so I won't have to frog so far if all goes wrong!)
So lovely bloglanders have a great week and I hope it's a sunny one :o)
