Hello, I hope you had a lovely weekend. We did - some gorgeous friends had a party to celebrate their wedding a year ago and the arrival of their beautiful daughter three months ago.
They took pains to stipulate that presents were not required, but I only do as I am told when it suits me (which it does most of the time), so on this occasion I ignored that instruction with relish.
I made them an extremely floral tea cosy which turned out to be a most excellent choice, for despite being hardened tea drinkers they didn't own a cosy.
Now, while I was busy snipping and stitching and hooking, Tiny Boy was busy with his own project. He likes to collect all the little offcuts and thread ends of what ever I am making. Usually he stashes them in bags or boxes around the house. Sometimes he steals my tupperware specially. This time however, he collected them all up and wrapped them in a sheet of paper. He then dictated what I should write on the front...
In case you can't read it, it says 'Things for you to make something with. You could make a teeny tea cosy. Love Tiny Boy.' We slid this inside the cosy and wrapped the whole thing in pretty paper. As you can imagine the recipients were most tickled by their bonus parcel.
