My favourite thing # 17

When the postie arrives laden with goodies AFTER hubby has left for work!

It's when he arrives before hubby has left, that it becomes a bit less enjoyable. You know,. the explaining and all that...

Today I had 2 fabric parcels arrive. Lucky me!

I am not a fan of Kaffe Fassett fabric. No designs have ever really grabbed me. I do, however, have a thing for roses. So when I saw this stunning fabric, I started visualising skirts and bags and...

My other parcel was part of my quest to find some great "boy" knits, now that I am sewing tees and the like for my boys. But I had to make the most of the postal charges so there might also be a couple for my daughter and me...

Ah, I can sleep easy now. I don't think I am expecting anything else at the moment that warrants subterfuge...

I have three words for you ... Post. Office. Box. Your hubby will be none the wiser!!!

I love the prints. I'm kind of with you on Kaffe Fassett (though I do love all the amazing colour), but those roses are lovely, aren't they? Great boy knits too.

I must go investigate the Fabric Fairy ... er, just after I have signed up for my P.O. box!

Not a bad idea Leisl but I'll have to weigh up my fear of being caught with my laziness...

Just found your great blog! Had to laugh ~ I spend half my days thinking, geez I hope that parcel doesn't arrive on Hubby's day off! You summed up my sentiments exactly!
