What an exciting day yesterday was.......
I was on a training day (towards my catering qualification to be QM on the Guide residentials!!), so reluctantly was out early on a Sunday morning at a remote rural Guide hut surrounded by fields. However, being out so early on a wonderful Autumn day had it's advantages, one of which was that I saw the most spectacular view of hoardes of birds in beautiful flight.... I had to stop my car and watch for a while, because there were just hundreds of black silhouetted birds against the light blue sky, in incredible formations. I imagine they were en route migrating to warmer climates. These birds really lifted my spirits, and I have wondered about them, and their long journey on a off throughout the day. (Gutted I didn't have my camera with me, so sorry no pics)
Anyway, I survived the training day, and the pizzas we had to cook - you will be glad to know. And, it's all systems go for the Guide sleep over next weekend - more of that in a future post I expect!.
But, I digress, so on to the firsts.
I have won something in a give away..............
My first win - the shrieks of delight were so loud they got Mark dashing out of the bath to see what had happened. It was from Sarah at narcoleptic in a cupboard.... check out her post with her beautiful cat picking out the winners. It's hard to describe the excitement.... So big thanks to Sarah (and especially to her cat!)
Then the other first of the day, is that I sewed my first zip ever.
But this purse was made from this lovely tutorial by Flossie teacakes, which I can absolutely recommend for beginners, as the descriptions and photos were spot on. I used a girlie material (which is not quite to my taste - but hopefully will be liked by my 13 year old neice) which has been recycled from one of Eden's dresses originally from next!
