A day of pleasant presents!

I finished the new bunting for my bike, it flaps around quite happily!
The new skull and crossbones fabric is irresistable, I had to make something with it and the black and white gingham is just the thing to go with it.
Poor old bike has to stand outside Halfpenny Home in all weathers and he's looking his age - 84!
I had a visit from our next door neighbour who is never far from her preserving pan at this time of year, she's used one of our new Christmas fabrics to top her jars of mincemeat. The other preserves Jo makes get to wear gingham...
Non-crafty people may find it hard to get excited about a delivery of ragrug hooks but we did! We've not had any of these in for ages and now more than ever people are eager to learn this most thrifty of crafts, ragrugs are made with old rags that are of no further use and these are transformed into pieces of textile art using very simple techniques and tools!
The best surprise today was the parcel that arrived from these beautiful earrings! They are so lovely and made from old chandelier drops - nice recycling!
Thank you so much, what a treat. The box is a beautiful colour too! Nic x
