A new cuff and Peerifool trailer

I had a wonderful gift in this morning's post ( the first we have had in a few days because of the heavy snow) . It was this absolutely beautiful leather cuff made by Bridget ( Heart of a Cowgirl). I had been coveting it for ages, but was too broke, and then she suggested we do a trade, which I was thrilled about! It's wonderful, beautifully made, and just so comfy - it's even nicer than I thought it would be. I feel like a little kid - I keep grinning when I catch sight of it on my wrist, I'm so happy with it! Now I need to save up for some of her beautiful earrings to match!

Our white blanket is finally clearing away, which is a relief, as everything takes twice as long to do in the snow. The fields are still covered, but the lanes are navigable without a 4 x 4 now. It's meant I have even less computer time than usual, so my apologies to those OWOH entrants whom I haven't managed to visit. I have got through a substantial chunk of the 900 odd entries, but there are roughly 100 in the middle that I just haven't had a chance to look at yet.
The little bit of online time I have had , was spent compiling a seed order. I love doing that and this is my favourite seed company - The Real Seed Catalogue. I buy peas, beans, shallots etc, loose, by weight, locally, but I just love the heirloom varieties that the Real Seed Catalogue sells. It's superb quality, sensibly priced, and comes with brilliant little sets of instructions and helpful advice.

And the other good news of today is that the trailer for 'Peerifool' is out. In the summer, my middle daughter took part in the making of this film by the Chagford Filmaking Group, led by Elizabeth Jane Baldry. She had a wonderful time being one of those small, shrill, golden porridge fairies! We can't wait to see the full film when it is released.

Yay! I'm so glad your cuff made it's way all those 1000s of miles from Arizona! I'm thrilled that one of my creations is making you smile every time you look at your wrist!
I didn't check the mail yesterday, but I'm thinking my ACEOs are sitting in the mailbox. I'll check on my way home tonight!
