Catherine of Sew Wonderful Life was the lovely person who I signed up for the Pay It Forward with. And all this stuff is what she sent me. I mean how good is that?!?!
So a huge thank you to Catherine. She made me a pin cushion. Woohoo! I
She also made me the sweetest little make up bag, and a tissue holder to match. Helen will now use this as an excuse for me to buy and wear make up. Helen may have a point. A little more effort should be made on my part.
These jams are pertinent to the PIF gift because Catherine lives in Tiptree, Essex, so they are made in her stomping ground.
If all that was not enough already, I also received some lovely bows and buttons. The buttons have quickly gone into hiding because I have two of the biggest button thieves in the world living in this house. I know when to keep some things to myself. Selfish, but necessary at times.
So if you want to see what I was up to today, sorry, you will have to come back tomorrow.
Just before I go I will tell you that I got the finest accolade from two ten year olds today. One mother drove three of the Y5s (including Helen) to the high school today for a special project, and I picked them up at lunch time and returned them to their school. When I dropped them off these other two children said, 'We're riding with your mother next time. She's fun. I bet no one else laughed so much on the drive back.' Ha! That should get me some major brownie points with my eldest. I'm fun! Go figure!?!
