So I mentioned a tinsy confession so I had better get it over and done with. Thank you very much for the entries to the little wool wound dollies. I actually had seven entries in the end, but two people asked me no to put them on my website as they were embarrassed (heaven knows why they were beautiful!). I saved all the pictures and then got into a complete muddle! I couldn't remember who's was who's and which to upload and which to not! One day, when I work out which is which I will post them. The good news is that the book went to Emily and her Mummy and I hope they have lots of lots of fun making things together. Sorry for all the confusion.
Now I said I was trying not to be distracted by craft and loveliness and I really did try, honest!! But it was a friends 40th birthday and I really didn't know what to buy him. He loves music and records, but specific ones. I did discover a record I thought he would like, but I had to pre-order it and it wasn't released until after his birthday. So I made him a quilted cushion voucher! It was such fun to make, but a bit naughty too!
Now I mentioned pre-ordering a record for a friend. It was for the Leisure Society , a great Acoustic / Folk / Fantastic Band whom I also love ans so I ordered a copy for me too! In doing so I won two tickets to their album launch at the London Aquarium. There were ten winners and the gig was tiny. It was a beautiful and mystical venue with beautiful and at times haunting music with sharks coasting around behind the band. A night my friend and I will remember for ever. I met this chap too and as you can imagine, for me it made my night just perfect!
Right I think that will do for a first page in ages, I think I need to ease my way back into this blogging business. I have lots of tortoise pics to share with you, but I think I will keep you is suspense! LOL
Enjoy your weekends!!
