Before they hit the post office.......

Just thought I'd drop by for a couple of minutes to show you the runners up gifts in my 300th post giveaway
The chicken wall hanging is going to Meeri in Finland
These two needlecases will go to Juliann and Leah in America - as Juliann sent me her address first she got to pick the colour and plumped for brown - hope you like purple Leah
Still need Meeri and Leah's postal details so come on girls get that email sent and I can take the goodies to the post office.
I am partway through another four of these little cases so if anyone out there fancies doing a swap for some fabric (read my last post for reasons for non-fabric-buying regime - and it should have read £165 not £120 pcm as the bank statement showed this morning) then I'd love to swap with you.
I'm going down with DS's rotton cold - I always get what the kids have had and usually feel pretty lousy which in turn makes me feel like a really mean mummy for sending them to school when they had it before me - my kids need to have a leg hanging off before they get a day off in this house.
Work is frenetic at the moment with lots of things pulling me in different directions all equally important - I am trying very hard not to slip into 'stressy' mode and did successfully bat something back to the Headteacher which she'd tried to offload onto me yesterday but I will be glad when next week is over and things should calm down a little - Nigel says I'm starting to get the hang of 'managing my manager'
Stitching has been slow over the past few days and yesterday evening I sneaked upstairs onto the bed, ostensibly to read my book, but ended up sleeping from 7 - 9 pm. Fortunately DH is around this week so picked up the taxi duties.
Roll on teatime and the weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anne the needlecases are gorgeous!

And yes, the art of managing upwards is one well worth mastering :)

The needle-cases are just too cute, the recipients are going to be thrilled! Take good care this weekend and feel better.

Oh those are too cute! And I happen to know Leah's favorite color is purple!

These needlecases are pretty - and the chicken wallhanging is wonderful. I hope you start feeling better soon. There is something all those kids getting together at school to share their germs. It is hard to tell how sick a child is, and I figure it the kids can stand up and not make too big a fuss over not going, they are going. My daughter didn't learn that until her last year in high school, and she missed a few days, even though she had probably been sicker before.

Those needle cases are lovely! I'm sure both recipients will be very glad to receive them. (is it i before e except after c??? You'd think being an English teacher I would know -- but spelling is NOT my strong suit and my dictionary is nowhere to be found...)

Take care of yourself and hooray for the weekend!

Cute little needle-cases! Hope you are feeling perkier soon!

Andrea said...

These are cute and the saying is SO true ! Hope you're feeling better soon. Seems like once the kids go back in September the germs start flying around. I'm up for a fabric swap if you want. Let me know what sort of colours you like and I'll see what I've got.
