My post today is a big thank you to a friend I've never met. Monday morning saw me suffering big time still with my sciatica and I was generally feeling very sorry for myself. I do my best to not make a fuss or moan so was here in my sewing room twiddling my thumbs with no customer's sewing to do when my postman knocked at my door. He handed me a parcel from a special friend called Catriona from Scotland. She and I have been in touch for years, she follows my blog and we have emailed etc. She had seen that we had bought a motor home and just decided to share some of her stash with me....so that's what's on my desk today.
In my parcel was....
3 large pieces of fabric with camper vans on them.
A gorgeous bag that she had made...she says she uses one when going across the camp site to the showers....and that's exactly what this one will be used for.
A bag full of lavender....because when I had spoken to her last I had mentioned I was looking for ideas to use my Laura Ashley fabric samples for.
A bag containing tiny hearts with 'made with love' on, a Scottish badge and a roll of tape with 'handmade' on......just because.
I was completely blown away by her generosity and I have to say she couldn't have chosen anything better or sent it to me to arrive at a better time.
All I can say is thank you from the bottom of my heart Catriona....and I will look forward to buying you that coffee when we meet in real life.
So on my desk now is....
Fabric chaos....I've sorted out all my fun, colourful pieces of fabric and have now cut out enough squares to make two quilts to go in our motor home.....there really is no better therapy is there?
The other thing I've made from the Laura Ashley samples Margaret sent us is this set of 6 coasters....I've machine embroidered each one and quilted them.
That's all from me for this week. This blogging lark really is a wonderful thing and this week has really proved it to me.
