I Love Royal Mail

Today was a much more successful day.  It started in the best possible way, I had two postal deliveries.  The first was the pattern I was lucky enough to win from the giveaway on Make It Perfect.  Its a fab pattern for several different variations of an A-Line skirt.

Have opened it and had a quick look at the pattern and it seems lovely and straightforward (which is just as well as I've never made clothes for myself)  I can't wait to get started, but I must .. I must!

The other package I received was my business cards.  I'd ordered them on 14th October & they arrived today.  Super Speedy!

I got them from and I'm really pleased with how they've come out.  Unfortunately I can't claim credit for the reverse of the cards - I was lazy and picked one of their ready made designs.

Sewing wise, I managed to finish the piece of work for Sew Hip (no, I can't tell you what it is, you'll just have to wait for the magazine to come out & buy it)

I also made four more lunch bags ready for the craft fair I'm doing on 20th November, and cut out the pieces for another two.

This evening I attended my first online maths session through my sons senior school.  It was strange to sit learning maths knowing that there are 15 other people at their own houses, all writing via graphics tablet, on the same virtual whiteboard.  It was brilliant though and nice not to have to leave my warm house on a chilly night like tonight.  Hopefully what I've learned will let me help my eldest son with his maths homework.

And so now I'm off for a bar of chocolate & a sit down on the sofa in front of some mindless TV - I think I've earned it.
