Ali asked for a flower brooch to wear with her grey dress so I made her up a selection which I thought would all go with grey. The blue one with the pearl dangles is made from real Japanese silk material whilst the 3 flowers with pointed petals are called Kanashi blooms and traditionally are what the Japanese Geisha girls make to go in their hair. Ali has received these now so I can show.
Sherry, Fluff and Bernie your gifts will be with you very shortly.
I am entering these as my Monthly Make for April over at The Felt Fairy.
We have the central heating fixed! You have never seen such an amount of pipe work that we now have in the airing cupboard. The offending piece of pipe causing all the bother should have a 1/2" diameter which had been reduced down to a tiny pin prick hole due to a build up of sediments. Silence is Golden (remember that tune Sherry) in our airing cupboard when the hot water is running.
We also have the phone line back up and running after a whole week. When the engineer removed the manhole cover to fix the repair he found the hole filled with water. Thought he might try saying 'I don't go down holes filled with water'!!! We have compensation too. The Doc rang the BT call centre in "India" and complained and the very nice operator gave us a £4 discount. Wow. We are very carefully deciding what to spend our windfall on!!!!!
Have a great weekend. We are spending ours with Sweet Cheeks.
