The postlady brought me two exciting bits of mail yesterday.
The first is a contribution to Worldwide Friends from the extremely kind Lynn at Tialys, some beautiful cottons in indigo and white and a piece of silk “which asked to go in the envelope with the rest”. Such lovely fabrics, and I shall definitely be able to use them, as well as the haiku she wrote for me to go on the back (see the comments on Worldwide Friends).
The second exciting piece of mail is my “I love Sheila, my Big Fat Pig” T-shirt. These T-shirts are fund raisers, created by Cecilia at The Kitchens Garden to raise money to buy healthy feed for her heritage breed Hereford sow, the lovely Sheila, a porcine goddess of epic size, personality and charm. I am honoured to wear her photo on my chest…. If you get a chance, hop over and look at Celi’s blog, which is crammed with beautiful photography, recipes, wisdom and tales of life on a small farm. Sheila is only one of a whole array of wonderful furred, hooved and feathered beasts who live useful, contented and well-cared-for lives under Celi’s care.
I’m making good progress with assembling the frame and centrepiece for Worldwide Friends, but too many photos of the same thing is boring, so you’ll just have to wait a bit until the frame is finished and I’m ready to appliqué it down onto the rabbit furoshiki.
Right, back to the needle.
