The other package came all the way from the Netherlands, although I think it may have stopped off for a mini break on the way. I won a giveaway from Carin and now I am the happy owner of this beautiful pin cushion, and some much needed purple for my stash.
Little packages of fabric from near and far really are the happiest mail.......thank you both so much.
It's a big day today, as I'm taking Mr 16 to have his braces taken off. He's had them for over 2.5 years so he's more than a little bit excited. Then tomorrow we're heading to Sydney for a university and college open day for Mr 18. I doubt there will be any patchwork shop stops, but I might try some more knitting in the car (maybe i'll get my cowl finished in time to wear it before the weather warms up).
