I got back to my desk on Wednesday and there were three big internationally posted parcels waiting for me. #1 was my BMV pattern haul which only took 10 days to arrive.
#2 was from Mum and Dad for my birthday a week ago.
My entire immediate family live in London right now. They went traveling separately but all ended up in the same place. This doesn’t mean I miss out on any mothering though – check out what was included here: a nice soft wool blanket, some candy from Florence, an alternative sewing magazine, a post card from Venice and, as always, a passive agressive news paper clipping. Let’s get a close-up of that:
The last package was from my fab little sister. Just the excitement needed to get me through the rest of the week.
– Finish the hallway*
– Attempt my first button down shirt, McCall’s 6035. Either the View B or C.
– Now that the patterns have arrived, I need to finalize my self-stitched-september plan.
*No, I haven’t finished the hallway, yes it’s been like 3 weeks since I said I’d do it. So much for holding myself accountable.
