More pictures and slightly more words - updated with winner!
Pencil cases knitted by Son #3’s class last year and doled out to four or five mothers to sew up, add a calico lining and a button. This was my lot. A prize to the first person to guess correctly which one is my child’s.
Update: we have a winner! Frogdancer guessed correctly, 12 minutes before the next correct entry from Tut-tut, that Son #3's pencil case is top left. All oranges and reds. Froggie, please email me your details and I'll send you a prize. What, I have no idea. I'll think of something.
(Bonus points go to Stomper and Ilse for their creative comments!).
The most generous gift ever. And totally out of the blue. She nearly left it on my doorstep but thought she’d better ring first to see if a) I was home [yep] and b) if I wanted it [is the pope Catholic?]. Quite amazing really, because one of my two new year’s resolutions this year was [Re]Learn to Spin. The other was More Hammock Time (hasn’t happened yet …)
Thank you, thank you dear Shula, she’s beautiful. I hope I can do her justice.
Oh, for those wondering, she’s a Pipy. Scroll right down.
Happy Chinese New Year.
Go on, make a resolution. You know you should.
