This week a beautifully packaged parcel arrived in the post - and when I opened it I found this lovely card...
...and a selection of lovely ribbons. Aren't they beautiful and don't they look lovely presented in a box like this? THANK YOU, THANK YOU Cheryl. I am really touched by your kindness. One of my patchwork cards is on its way to you. I am now spending some happy moments wondering how best to use these treasures and in the meantime I am enjoying just looking at them and feeling them - yes I know sad aren't I?!!
On Thursday we went to the Scrapstore as my husband wanted a couple more plastic folders like one I had got from there before. He found his folders and I found this lovely fabric. I couldn't resist it and I have 3 peices each of decent size and probably enough to make 3 tote bags. As we paid £1 for the lot I felt I'd got a bargain. Watch this space for the finished articles!!
Thought you might like to see our resident squirrel - or one of them. As well as badgers we have several squirrels who have been keeping us amused with their dashing back and forth as they collect the hazelnuts from the tree at the end of our driveway. I hadn't realised how vocal squirrels can be till this year and this lot do a lot of chattering. One was sitting having a little rest on the fence yesterday when he spotted a ginger cat wandering his way - you should have seen him go and the angry mutterings that emanated from the tree for quite a while left the cat in no doubt that his presence was not welcome.
Here is a photo of one of the badgers taken from my front door - it is not very good as it was too dark for my little point and shoot camera but you can see he's there. They are out there at night now crunching on the fallen nuts which the squirrels have dropped. We don't need a wildlife garden we have one just the other side of our fence where there are acres of woodland!
Have a good weekend.
