A Makey Parcel

I brought a little something the other week, mail order - as you do!!

Another Clothkits parcel arrived in the post with a selection of goodies. I swear I am addicted - so much for not buying anything at the moment (ahem) I did get my fingers smacked for it, but 'Oh' it was well worth the trade. Plus a huge promise to lay off the buying of things for 'a little' while - honest guv!

I couldn't resist though when I saw this (amongst a couple of other things - sorry guv!) lovely little 'make your own' Pocket Dolls kit and on offer too. A bargain - even I couldn't resist.

An original vintage pattern first printed in the UK in 1978! Well if I couldn't have one when I was six then why not now? I have this weird way of reasoning things out in my mind - it's always good to have a plan, don't you think?

Apart from the 'I want one now' urge, one of the main things that attracted my eye was the pattern and then the colours which are so vibrant, but not too in your face - does that makes sense?

Anyhow, with fingers smacked 'I am soooo naughty' - yeah right! I have a new parcel to get started on very soon - I will refrain from starting anything else until the bag 'is' finished and it nearly is 'ooohhhh' the suspense!! Plus I have a mountain of new school clothes with labels that need sewing in which really 'should' be a priority now - only a couple of weeks to go.

Happy Tuesday - have a good one. xox
