There’s obviously some planetary alignment on the go. The house is as tidy as it’s ever likely to be, the laundry door now contains the washing mountain, the smell of freshly baked coconut cake containing inordinate amounts of sour cream is wafting, the sun is shining through with some crispy wintry warmth and I’m off to chase kidlets in and out of frigid sea water for the afternoon. I’m feeling good.
Here’s some other bits of good coming my way lately...
Bit of Goodness Number One
Funky, hand-felted necklace giveaway win, courtesy of Marie at Craftyrie, arrived via the traumatised postie. (I knew it was coming, he knew he was watched). Marie even included a bonus crocheted hairclip – just cos I’m talented enough to live local.
Bit of Goodness Number Two
No rest for the persecuted postie. I had half a notion that Leonie at Raglan Guld was sending a copy of one of her gorgeous pics – but behold! A beautiful brown paper package tied up with string, containing a few additional favourite things.
Bit of Goodness Number Three
A birthday pressie purchased from Claire at Gugaw in the UK and destined for a Someone in, er, the UK. Despite the well travelled-ness of the bracelet, I am wearing a goodness halo right now. Months ahead of time, I am. Just to truly freak out the MIL, I’m planning the surface mail option to prove all redemption and uber organisation.
Bit of Goodness Number Four, Five, Six, Seven, Blah, Blah, Thirteen
I cashed in my birthday Crafty Shopping Spree Voucher over at Sunspun yesterday. I might just manage a beautiful Brooklyn Tweed, Porom beret out of this stash, but for the most part, it seems I’m in it for the making, not the wearing. Apparently I have an unforeseen mission to bedeck loved ones in knitted accents of varying shades of grey and four kinds of duck egg blue.
Bit of Goodness Number Fourteen
One small compromise on duck egg blue.
Hope a bit of goodness shines through your Sunday.
