This year I decided not to take part in any swaps. Once I started seeing hold alls and big travel bags in people’s inspiration mosaics, that was enough to put me off! A cushion is about my limit, or so I thought… Then Sonia made some knickers from the Trixie Lixie pattern and posted about having a fun, little swap for Valentine’s Day and I was suckered in!
The first pair were a complete disaster, not stretchy enough by any stretch of the imagination. The second pair went much better and these are now winging their way to my partner 🙂
And then today I received these lovely knickers from Hannah (these are almost impossible to photograph and I’m not modelling them) along with some lovely Malteser rabbits (all scoffed by the boys)! Perhaps I should have opened them tomorrow, but I couldn’t wait! Thanks Hannah, they are fab!
Other than sewing knickers, I have started on my next Friends With Additions blocks for Christine. Lots of triangles….
And that’s about all I have been up to. We are up to our necks in water around here. Wargrave is largely okay unless you live by the river, but lots of the surrounding areas are completely flooded now. The husbeast has been working at home for nearly two weeks now as the trains into London are all screwed up, plus last week’s Tube strikes.
My parents in law have had their beach chalet half destroyed down in Branscombe in Devon by the storms there. The beach is unrecognisable; it’s so sad. I think we are going to try and get down there this weekend if we can send Dan to my parents for the night. We need to rescue what’s left as my MIL has a very bad back and cannot drive at the moment. Like so many others, I will be so glad when this bizarre weather finally ends!
Linking up to Sue’s Caesarea Scrappers today 🙂
