Blogging in English...
Spent the day at school today working in the library again (except for a trip up to the high street to have a nice sandwich and coffee by myself with a book - ah, the life of luxury), so didn't do any sewing. But I got home to find these two lovely cards in the post - the leaves from Elly and the other card from Amy, as a prize for enterring her WIPs giveaway on her blog (you had to leave a comment telling about one of your WIPs).
Now, I think this is a gorgeous card, and I'm delighted to receive it, but I have to say, excellent workmanship aside, my favourite thing about this card is that it was returned to her, ostensibly for extra postage, but there was this stamp on the card which reads "returned for better address/show country in English". She added the word "England" and sent it again, but it does make me wonder precisely which language it is they think "United Kingdom" is in in the first place... Gotta love the postal service, right? (I stuck the label over my address before posting it here, publicly, but trust me, it's correct, neatly printed and definitely in English underneath that label).
