They're mine!

I have 20 years of Country Life Magazines in my car! It's been raining since we got home so they'll have to say there safe until tomorrow when hopefully it has stopped raining. It took a lot of boxes and a bit of muscle power but they're all mine...mine I say. MINE!!! :) Only wee one came with me as big one wanted to stay home to sort out her essays. She's sitting her English exam soon and all essays have to be submitted before the exams. Anyway the lovely lady that gave me her magazines was very touched when wee one gave her the bunch of flowers and box of chocs we had taken for her. She said there was really no need but they were lovely. How could I not give her something as a thank you for giving me her collection?

I see my russian doll buttons took quite a lot of peoples fancy.
I bought them from Ebay but the lady runs her own website called www.textilegarden.co.uk there are a lot of buttons there and some real beauties. I guess I'll be seeing the russian doll ones on a few creations soon eh? :D

Right work in the morning so I guess I should go get some sleep, busy day tomorrow what with work, sorting through my magazines into date order and putting some ideas together for my Heart and Spring Swap partner. Oh yeah and I suppose I better do some housework.
