Bags are being pulled out from under the bed, clothes are sorted, toenails have been polished (hello toes, haven't seen you for a while), and the animals are starting to look at us sideways. They know something's up!
I'm having a birthday while we're away, and I'm feeling very special with my friends getting in early with phone calls, cards, and a few little parcels in the post.
At this rate, I could possibly spread the celebrations out for a whole week.
Thanks to Pia for this card. It looks just like my suspicious cat Tiger!
Now, you know I can't possibly open any of my presents just yet, but I will have to do it before we go tomorrow afternoon.
This week is proving to be busier than I'd thought it would be. A little flurry of orders waiting for me after Magnolia Square had me back in the workroom and off to the post office yesterday.
But this afternoon I'm baking a cake, making pea and ham soup, and watching the rain bucketing down outside. It's a great day to be snug indoors!
While I was busy up in Melbourne, the Ink & Spindle girls were hard at work in their studio printing up this new fabric for me. It was waiting for me when I got home, and of course, I had to wait for just the right moment to open the parcel!
Another custom colourway just for me, and I couldn't be happier with the result.
My photo doesn't quite capture how lovely this is, the green is a bit more green, and the base a bit more beige. It's luscious!
