New Arrivals!!!

Andy went into town for the papers this morning and came back with two guinea pigs for Ruby....at last.
Oh my word they are cute. One black and one ginger. Two boys as we don't want any shennanigans resulting in babies. As yet un-named as that will be a job for Ruby.
She will be so excited when I ring her later to tell her.

I have woken feeling much better this morning but convinced that it is Saturday. Andy having a night off last night has totally thrown me...lol.

This morning I have to go into the big town for a few things and then call at the craft shop in the garden centre on the way back for thread to hand quilt the worn and washed quilt when it's ready.
I've not been to The Works for ages so I might call in there to see if they have any new sewing or quilting books.
It will be nice to get all these things done so that we don't have to go out tomorrow if we don't want to.

Grey skies and heavy rain here this morning so a snuggly afternoon of sewing is on the cards once we are back from town and then Chinese for tea while we watch Passengers....a new film that DD picked up this week. I have watched it with her but it was so good that I don't mind watching it again with Andy.

So that is what is going on at Tea Towel Mansion today.
Have a lovely day y'all.

  2. Are you sure they vare both boys Sheila? Our daughter had a guinea pig when she was younger and she decided that Molly need a companion. To cut a long story short, the new companion, being assured by the pet shop that it was a girl, was indeed a boy. Not long after that we had three baby guinea pigs. Apparently it is difficult to tell the sex of a guinea pig.

  3. Hobbycraft has a sewing sale and the good Guterman thread is all half price including the quilting thread. I may just have succumbed but left the fabric alone! Happy sewing, Catriona

    1. Thanks for the heads up Catriona...I didn't get to call into the garden centre as the road we wanted to use was closed and by the time we got to where there was access I had quite gone off the idea-x-

  6. I bet Ruby is thrilled that the guinea pigs have finally arrived isn't she. And choosing names is a very important and exciting jobs. We bought 3 girls or so we thought, but after catching one in the act we had to take him back and swap him for a her! Looking forward to seeing a photo of them and knowing their names. xx
