The Postman cheered me up

A couple of days ago the Postman deliver two boxes full of goodies.
This box was a special edition and I love the fabrics for a complete kit to make the pattern.

My monthly  subscription box a selection  of fabrics, rotary cutting blade plus other goodies.

On the health front I am due for a CT scan on Saturday, prior to going to Oxford to see specialist and still struggling the anxiety but I am trying to be more positive. 
I struggle to doing any sewing but I have taken back my kitchen and cooking meals again.

The Story so far
