martiangirl has landed
My niece Thea arrived yesterday, and she brought gifts from afar.
She brought the August button-of-the-month (the dragonfly button that just arrived was July's - I'd lost track)and it's a very lovely golden sunflower.
It's a perfect button for the month of August, a salute to the happy sunshiney faces of late summer. Thank you Jane!
Jane also sent this fantastic book:
A lovely book with loads of interesting and amusing patterns to stitch for our little creatures. I'm already planning a couple of Christmas gifts - Gus really needs a new sweater, and maybe a hat for Whimsy. Can't wait!
The ravlympics continue, though I've slowed down considerably.
I escorted Thea and Ian to the pool today and knitted poolside while they enjoyed a swim.
I'm more than half finished that second sock, which I'm sure will be all done by the end of the week-end, and then it's back to the Lotus Blossom and the race to the finish!
In the meantime I'll be enjoying a fairly leisurely couple of days with the family.
