Thank you, Angel!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi all. Sorry for the delay in updating - I had an unexpected, and very welcome, long w/e away. It was a bonus as the kids all had an inset day yesterday - why on earth schools can't make their inset days on the same day in the same area, I don't know.

Anyhow, I was going to blog about crochet today, but I'll save that for tomorrow. Because just look what arrived in the post this morning.

It's the shawl that I won from Angel's giveaway. If you haven't checked out Angel's blog, it's worth spending some time there as this is one of the planet's funniest people! (And a complete nutcase to boot!) I've been pleading for a picture, so she also sent me (which I've had to frame):

So she's obviously thin as a rake! I also spotted one of her feet in a picture somewhere - she has 5 toes (though she denied it was her, claiming it was a 108 year old relative or something).

And one more picture:

The duck wanted in, so he got in. The cushion just felt decorative. I absolutely love it: the colours have a gold shimmer that doesn't really show up on camera. I wanted to show it on grass, but it's pouring down with rain, so that's impossible.

And a taster for what is coming tomorrow:

That's all for now. Thanks so much for comments. I absolutely love reading them.

Oh bless you. It was a last minute decision, as I've been having a bad few weeks, so hubbie whisked us off for a recuperative break! I'll check it with you first next time!
Right, back to being rude! Got my freebie! lol
