A certain someone turned 14 last Friday.
I drove down to Southampton on Friday to get the Isle of Wight bestie for the weekend. Friday night we all went and enjoyed the third and last school performance of Hairspray, which both girls were in. Saturday I took them into town. Sunday I took them for an amazing Thai buffet lunch, then we headed south again to return said bestie to her family. I have spent more time in the car than anywhere else it seems. But it was worth it to see one incredibly happy birthday girl.
Very little sewing has occurred. But some fabulous post was received today.
From my online friend Maggie I got this Heather Ross parcel of wonderfulness. The pyjamas are for deconstructing and adding to my HR stash, but in all honesty I am wearing the penguin pyjama top right now. Freaking comfie and prefect it is too. I think I may have the best of both worlds here - pyjama bottoms for the stash and the top for me. Woohoo! (The bottoms are about a foot too long for me so this makes sense. Please do not suggest I hem them and wear them as well. We all know hemming is a dirty word around here, like ironing that is not quilt related.)
Needless to day the package from Maggie was more than enough to shake the grump out of me, what with the quilt patterns, fun mini tapes, and extra bits of HR from her stash too. I admit to a girlie girl squeal when I opened the package. And to grinning stupidly to myself with only a gerbil as witness.
But... Yes, there is a but... I also got another package today.
Some Alison Glass fabric. Let the quilt making commence!
Yes, I'm a happy person again. Yes, I will try to stay that way. No, I will not take an unauthorised leave of absence again.
Oh, and no my computer is not fixed. Which may have been one of the things contributing to my grump.
