Just how much blog excitement can one woman stand in a single weekend? First came a much anticipated meeting with the queen of crafty blogs, the delightful and extraordinarily talented Julie from Little Cotton Rabbits. Julie asked me to test knit her cupcake pattern (it's fab, and fun, and full of pictures of knitted cakes) and it turns out we live only thirty miles apart so we met here for tea on Friday. Tiny Small and I were enchanted by her bag of little cotton animals - rabbits and bears and badgers, oh my! And imagine our excitement when Julie produced these tiny lovelies for the girls:
I haven't stolen them yet, but I do love them as much as the Smalls do. Thank you Julie, for a lovely morning. Again, soon, perhaps?
And as if that wasn't (weren't?) enough, yesterday saw the arrival of The Box! My poor postman - I saw him through the window extracting a tape covered box from the back of his van and was lying in wait by the front door when he knocked. It was a very, VERY hard choice, but these are the three delights I chose to keep. The girls petitioned extremely hard for the ribbons. I was after wool, but in the end they won me over - anything for a quiet life. What I put in is a secret but the box is heading back to Trashy tomorrow after a very long journey round the world!
