What a suprise!!!

Well, what a day I had yesterday, I woke up feeling very ill, full of flu and very sorry for myself an almost 5 minutes after coming downstairs there was a knock at the door, and with my usual breed of pesimism, I uttered "What's this now?" Well what it was was a huge parcel from Lynda Monk (Purple missus). Now we have got to be firm friends through bogging, I realy found a kindred spirit in Lynda, and hope she feels the same. Well I knew she was sening me some bits, but when I opened the parcel and realised that I found a splash of colour, now this is when I turn into the kid on christmas morning. I was expecting raw fabric so now I am ripping the paper off like a nutter, it even caused Craig to stop to see what was going on - and that's rare as his normal utterance is more textile crap! Well even he was impressed. This is what I found.......



and here's he back




Well you could have knocked me over. Lynda has been working on this for a while with little tasters, saying it wasn't going well, saying she didn't like it and there's me, oh it'll be fine, it'll turn out great... and she stil says it isn't good enough. Well I Couldn't be more bowled over, more grateful, more in awe of her work. I have got to tell you at CRAIG's URGING... and that never happens!.... It is on the wall already, in the dining room no less!!!!! This is uncharters waters for Craig to ask for a piece of work to be hung, never mind on the dining room wall.

So publically I want to say THANK YOU LYNDA, I LOVE IT AND YOU ARE SUCH A GOOD FRIEND.
