I may just be the luckiest girl on the planet....

.... and you are about to be the most jealous people on the earth.

I received the first of my packages from Cindy's Goodie Swap from Sarah (Narcoleptic in a Cupboard)

I am so proud to be the new owner of the Rotten Rug Mug. I saw this in the Flickr pool when Sarah posted it and instantly wanted it. In fact if it wasn't for me I was going to ask if I could have one made. What Sarah doesn't know about me (as I never told her) is that Bourbons are actually my favourite biscuit. I haven't bought them in a while simply because it's too dangerous as I would happily eat the entire pack in a day. I have to say though I doubt I'll be using this as a Mug Rug. I'm thinking of hanging it somewhere in my sewing room so I can look at it every day.

This is the point in the post that we need to take a more serious tone. I think we need to get our friend Sarah some help as there is clearly something wrong with her. It could be her eyes or her brain. She sent me the additional goodies in the picture below as an "apology".

You see I genuinely believe that there is something wrong with Sarah because she believes that she had to send these bits as compensation because she made "such a bad job of the needlecase". I sat and studied the needlecase for a few minutes and I can't find any flaws ergo there is something wrong with Sarah :-p . I love love love it! It feels soooo soft and I've never had anything like that before. It feels very luxurious and I plan to use it often.

Finally, Sarah sent me this lovely card which is very true for me. I'm going to use this saying in everyday use now!
*Ahem* *Cough* * Cough* Sarah also sent me a large bar of Dairy Milk Caramel that HONESTLY didn't get devoured with an hour of opening the package. Oh no, not me *cough* *cough* *ahem*

Thanks Sarah for making me an awesome Mug Rug and Goodie! I'm glad you were my partner!

P.S - Apologies on making you wait to see if I loved it. I have been up to my eyes in it the last week getting ready to go to Canada tomorrow!!

Remember my Sewing To Do list ...

I crossed something off on it!

I apologise for the pics being not great but it is extremely hard to photograph an ironing board and make it look good.

I am very pleased with this. I was worried that the fabric might not be suitable for a ironing cover or that I was supposed to be using a specially designed fabric for it but OH says it works perfect. He even said my fabric choice was genius because it he doesnt need to use any steam any more to iron his shirts.

I love inadvertant genius.

I also finished the mug rugs on that list and some 2-4-1 totes but Ill show them later. I now have ten days to sew a maxi dress, a t-shirt and a jumpsuit for myself for holiday. Thats not including all the stuff I have to do to ACTUALLY prepare for my holiday. I may have a breakdown.

But I don't care because in ten days I will be in my second home, Canada! I'm so excited!

Dangerous Combination

Hmmmm is sewing and Cava ever a good combination? Especially with THOSE scissors.

And yes, I finally started work on my Goodie Swap (Run by the ever wonderful Cindy @ Fluffy Sheep Quilting ) and that is an official sneak peek at the top ;-)

P.S - Excuse the blurry night-time pic.

My to do list

Pretty intimidating. This lot neff done within the next 4 weeks.

To my mug rug partners, the only reason ironing board cover is above you in the list is because 2 weeks ago I took our current one off, took all the string off it for the new one and them proceeded to leave it meaning we have no ironing board cover fort my partner to iron his work shirts on. Oops!
