After a week of no post due to the Royal Mail postal strikes over here, my first day of mail after the strike was GREAT!!! First of all, a BIG thank-you to Harmien. I love Harmien's blog and I have admired Harmien's beautiful threadkeepers for a while and totally out of the blue she sent me one! I don't even know how she got my address! Harmien i was so excited when i seen the envelope with your name and address on the back and i am so touched by your kindness. Thank-you very much. I always say this but i just can't get over how kind and generous my blogging friends are. Now, here is my threadkeeper. Isn't is beautiful? Harmien put my initials on one side and hers on ther other. I still say she should sell these, i bet loads of people would buy one. I just love hand-crafted pieces.
So in other Good Mail Day news, i also received my next RR to work on. This is round 2 of the Heartfelt Friends RR and we are using LHN designs. I received Edgar's from Donna yesterday. I couldn't get a good picture of it but this is a real beauty. I love how he has stitched all our initials in hearts across the middle. Edgar's only specification is that he wants trees in each square. I think i know what im going to stitch for him.
The in-laws left this morning to back to Canada. It was totally fine having them to stay. I felt bad to be so ill for the week they were here and not very good company as a result, but they understood. Whilst im glad to have the place to ourselves again, it is always sad for DH to say goodbye. He gets on well with his parents, especially his dad and really misses him. His mum always gets quite upset when leaving and i do feel sorry for her. She is actually English so she made that move away from her family herself when she got married. I wish all our family lived in the same place but they don't so goodbyes are part and parcel of our life.
I went to my quilting class last night. Just did more cutting out and measuring so i'll wait until i finish my homework (lots of sewing!) before i give an update. Better go and do some work. I'm working (!) from home today to stop spreading my cold germs around the office!
