"Ooh yes please," I replied, not even knowing what they contained but knowing that she did a textile degree.
And what did they contain?
On a sadder note, her ducks (who personally wrote me notes and gave me eggs) met a very sad and brutal end on Friday night when a fox got into their run - no further details required. We were both very upset and as she hadn't got any recent photos of them I decided to make her a little picture of them. I had some of their feathers that I'd collected in the summer when they moulted and happily stitched away for a few hours. But actually giving a textile picture to someone with a textile degree turned out to be harder than I'd imagined and I then spent several more hours getting colder and colder feet about it. Eventually I plucked up some courage and gave it to her - fortunately she seemed genuinely pleased with it and quite touched that I'd spent the time making it.
