It's Official - I am/was the first.

The last time I was the 'first' at anything of 'significance' was when I used to come first in the Parents Race at my sons school Sports Days - 30+ years ago.  They used to be very proud of me winning the races - especially as it meant they got to share the winnings - a bag of sweets or lollipops.

Before that it was when I was at senior school - when I used to win the races, high jump, long jump and hurdles!  (I learned to run and jump and climb at a very early age - being skinny, shy, wearing glasses and 'blessed' with titian hair,and freckles, it was of the utmost importance for 'survival' LOL)

So you can imagine my delight, that yesterday at the ripe old age of 60+ to learn that I was the first person in the United Kingdom to receive my Jo Capper Sandon designed stamps, and to blog them.

Just a bit of silliness to make you smile - as  I have visitors this weekend - and won't be able to have time to use the rest of them or to blog them.

Gosh - I was the first - fancy that - can you see my silly grin - it'll last all day?

So funny! By the way, Lottie. I haven't forgotten about you. I finally finished my creation for our corset swap. It turned out to be something completely different than I originally intended (I changed my mind a couple of times, that's why it took me so long), but I hope you'll like it. Unfortunately, the post office was closed today, so it might be a couple of days before I can post it. I'll send you an e-mail as soon as it's on its way!

Oooh Lottie! AND possibly a gift too from the lovely Jo!How exciting and titillating yet frustrating at not being able to 'play' with them this weekend!
Now, I have to tell you about a place called the 'Beetroot Tree', a wonderful place with all sorts of art and mixed media stuff, artists,gallery,cafe,garden (with the most unusal decorations hanging from the pergola ?!?!),oooh!
I've discovered Angelina fibre and want to play with some!
A lot of the stuff they had, I hadn't heard of before yet, had seen it in peoples' work.
They do 'taster' days or mornings on a Monday, when I've become more solvent(financially LOL!), I'll be heading over there! I'm sure you would love it too!
Must go, my stomachs' growling!
Hope you have a great weekend.

Sandie xx

Whooo - so NOW you're under pressure to produce one of the first piece of work featuring these stamps.

Thank you for your wonderful comments - and Jo - what a generous offer - but there is really no need

This post is just a bit of fun - to express my joy at being first - after such a long time.

Thank you, for all your inspiration.
