It's been a busy day today and a very good day too! Firstly this morning I went to a Knit and Natter at Albany Creek. Two ladies there are working on throws using the chevron pattern that has become almost like my signature pattern (there's one in my banner) , and today 2 other ladies indicated that they are going to start one in the next day or so. One lady, Helen, is going to post a photo of hers on Ravelry when her rug is finished. It looks great by the way!
Now just have a look at the lovely Easter surprises I got at the Albany Creek K&N... isn't this so cute! And no sugar!
|I put her in my little blue willow egg cup :-)|
|Look at her cute hat!|
Then look what Karen's husband Peter, got especially for me because, as he said, he didn't want me to feel left out when he gave out chocolate Easter eggs. This was just such a lovely gesture and I really appreciate Peter's thoughtfulness.
I headed for home then, where I quickly put on some beef to roast in the slow cooker because my DD2 and her housemate were coming for dinner. (These two, along with another friend are off to Thailand for 16 days on Friday and DH and I are minding Jimmy Hans, DD2's pup, my furry grandson :-). So he arrived tonight along with his bed, toys, treats and food. )
Then this afternoon I headed off to Sisters of Stitch and had a lovely time...stitching, oh and some knitting too!! I took along some fabrics to give to a young friend there who belongs to the Sunshine Linus group. Last SOS gathering Nicky had told me that the group needed fabrics so that they could continue to make quilts for children in hospitals awaiting treatment especially young cancer patients. So I went through my stash, took photos of the fabrics and emailed these to Nicky to see if they were suitable...they were, so I took those in today.
|This panel I had bought at a market in the UK...|
|This cot sized panel was in one scrapbag...|
These fairy/elves/pixie panels were also in a scrapbag...
This is a cloth book panel length...also in a scrapbag...Paddington Bear...love him!
These are just scraps but both Nicky and Judie assured me they will be useful!
|Just a narrow strip of Paddington|
|Now I wonder what the ladies can do with this panel length...all the days of the week!|
So instead of these taking up space here at my place waiting for 'one day', the clever ladies of Sunshine Linus will turn them into something useful...how good is that???
Now today I also got a parcel from Norway...from my swap buddy in the Mug Rug Swap...now these are special so I'm going to write about them in the next post...showcase them on their own :-)
