In association with Estelle over at Under a Pink Moon, today is the unveiling of the long awaited ripple afghan projects. I can't say I am over the moon about this one because like Estelle this has been a long project with episodes of 'I hate it, I love it'. At the moment I hate it again and want to pull it out and start again. The thing is that I used the leftover bits to play around with and I love the result so I want to refashion the whole thing into the new style. I don't know what will happen but for now this afghan is getting much use on our sofa during these cold winter nights. It is quite heavy and dense and warms you up like nobody's business.

Now, with no relation to the above story I wanted to tell you about something that made me so happy yesterday. I went to the post shop to pick up our mail and there in the post was my 1 kg bag of award winning espresso beans from Hayden at Rush Coffee.

Now I eagerly await our delivery by post. Thanks Hayden!
