When I did surface I did watch a bit of the football. I'm not into watching sport on TV. Probably because most of the time the TV is on I'm also doing other stuff like sewing or sorting or using my laptop. With most sports you have to watch and concentrate or you can't follow what's going on. As I hadn't had the computer on at all yesterday and didn't feel up to much, I could just about manage lying in the dark, watching the FA Cup rematch between Sunderland and Middlesbrough, with the sound turned down low. I wouldn't have bothered, but Mum wanted to watch it and Chief was actually at the match. I couldn't spot him. He was apparently sat in the front row opposite the players tunnel. It sort of felt a little strange and at the same time comforting, that he was probably in my living room for a few hours, even though he was at the other end of the country.
Today when I returned home from work I found a parcel had been delivered to me and what a box of delights it turned out to be. Can you remember when I won this give away over on Sarah's blog? Well I was a bit concerned that my prize had got lost and that Sarah would think I was a rude sewing madam that couldn't be bothered to say: Ta very muchly. Then I had an email from Sarah saying my prize was on it's way after some posting difficulties and well life gets in the way sometimes doesn't it?
I guess I was expecting a few random scraps. So when I opened the box to this I was a tad aghast.
And even more so when I had chance to inspect the wonderful contents!
Look at these gorgeous Japanese fabric charms. I'm loving the quirky cuteness of these.
Then there was this little lot!
Gorgeous scraps and some mighty large ones at that. Loving the Summersault and spot the Echino and Ruby Star!!
A beautiful card and gorgeous Echino bookmark which was in use about 20 seconds after this picture was taken.
So how's that for a box of delights then? Thanks very much Sarah! Today has been a much better day.
