the best way to spend a winters day
Of course the best way to spend a winter's day is inside at the sewing machine whilst the toddler plays contentedly. Particularly, if the weather involves rain, hail, thunder and lightning! I must admit I do love this type of weather, but only if I'm inside. Which today I was, sewing away.
On my sewing table today I have an array of pixies at different stages of assembly, a pile of said pixies arms and legs, another pile of babushka's and a sweet little angel reminding me I need to make more like her. The angel is Tully's and has adorned various pieces of clothing since I made her a few weeks ago. She has also spent some time in the washing machine, hence the slightly bent wings. Poor angel.
Upon my table I also have a new bundle of fabric that my brave postie delievered today. I could see the parcel in my letterbox through the hail and was so eager to see it's contents but of course waited for the pelting to stop, no way was I getting belted by little nuggets of ice even for an exciting fabric parcel. I so love getting fabric in the mail, I think it's nearly my favourite type of mail! And just look at my selection. Some awesome echino, cute Japanese and some great spots and stripes. All intended for new pixies. See the way cute rainbow/mushie one on top, well the very sweet bonus to this is the little flowers and and apples are adorned with glitter. My word Miss Tully will be a bit excited about this one, I know I was!
Hmmm what else, well to say thank you to all you lovely readers and my friends over at facebook AND customers at my new store on made it, I'm going to have a little giveaway. As I have a bit of a production line of babushka's on the go I figure that's the best thing to offer up. So what do you have to do? Well you need to "like" pint over on facebook and then simply leave a comment here telling me what your fav thing to do on a winters day is. Easy! You have until Sunday night to leave a comment, and I'll select a winner with the random generator thingie on Monday. Cool.
