Poppy Patchwork

My little bit of this big World

Wednesday, 5 December 2018

Early December

Our very confused tree, very few leaves left on the branches, 
but loads of buds.
Fabric purchase
 Will's boots which light up as he walks
Monday was fun with Will, he is such a happy little boy, we had two train sets out, he loves them as much as cars. My neighbour gave me loads of wooden track and trains, her grandson has outgrown them. Later we popped outside, Will is very good at picking up leaves, he had time on his sit on truck around the garden as hubby filled all the bird feeders.
The fabric was purchased on Sunday, the hungry caterpillar will be made into a bag for the train sets, the robins I loved but no idea what I will use it for, the cost has been added to my stash list. 
Tuesday was sign class, I am almost there with my lines for the play, just one bit I need to practice, it's fun when we have a project to do. Later we popped to Lidl for a few things, it's close by, hubby loves their fish cakes, plus we got veg for soups.  We managed to get some washing on the line, it was a sunny day after a frosty start, we wanted to make the most of the only dry day forecast.
Today I have the dentist and then a funeral, I'm not going to the wake. I also want to finish my Christmas cards, it's getting to the point where we need to post them.


  1. Love the Christmas fabric. Not a good day for you today, Marlene, hope both things go as well as can be expected. How nice to have all that train stuff donated to you by a kind neighbour.

  2. I think Daniel's favourite toy when he was Will's age was his wooden train set, he used to play with it for hours. We've still got it, ready to pass on to grandchildren, hopefully.

  3. I would love a pair of flashing boots or trainers, If only they made them in adult sizes.It is pouring here and set to continue for the next 10 I believe.

  4. Wow what a great week so far! Sounds wonderful.

  5. Your Amaryllis is a lovely colour.

    I love Wills boots, such fun that they light up!
    Trains are such a popular toy …

    All the best Jan

  6. You cant beat a wooden train set, what a nice neighbour to pass them on for Will to enjoy. Lots of fun times with his cousins to come as well enjoying them.
    The robin fabric is lovely.
