We arrived home from our trip away to this oh so lovely mail waiting for us. An unexpected parcel of treasures from Jessicah (her blog Spinning a Yarn). What a lovely thing to come home to, thanks so much Jessicah!
Some neat old Play School books with heaps of activities to do with the kids - I love this sort of thing. A big pile of embroidery threads in every colour that you can imagine. Some of her very own beautiful yarn. Some lollies and some seeds for our garden. And all tied up with a silk scarf that Ilsa is quite fond of.
Right away, right after the lollies were opened of course, the bean seeds were planted. With the help of my little planting friend, she is a very careful and diligent seed planter, which is proving to be helpful indeed with all the seed planting busyness at this time of the year. The sweet peas and zucchini will follow suit shortly, as soon as I decide on a good spot for them. Jessica included a copy of 'Jack and the Beanstalk' to go with our bean seeds, Liam is quite fascinated with the story. I wonder if our seeds will grow right up to the sky and through the clouds too!
And a close up of that yarn, so lovely. (She sells her lovely yarns here by the way).
