I had fun...

... making these little bits and pieces yesterday afternoon.  It was pouring with rain and I was cosy and warm here inside sewing away and watching Inspector Frost.  I made five scissor fobs and two little hexie flowers for a swap.
John was out in the freezing cold at a yacht club working bee and I was snuggled up at home feeling so glad I'm not the sporty one.

I found a letter in my letterbox  with a note saying 'Delivered to wrong address'.  When I opened it I discovered it was a gorgeous piece of fabric from Maria at Life on the Block..  A 'just because' present.  Thank goodness it finally found its way to me.  Thank you so much Maria, it is charming and you are so kind and lovely to send me such a delightful gift.

I've decided to join this fun, Blogtober Fest,  over at Tinnie Girl.  The aim is to post every day.  I'll see how I go.  I also plan to try and make a daily visit to five blogs on the list that I haven't visited before.  should be fun.
