Keep it to yourself, but I've finished Chloe's birthday present with a whole two weeks to spare.
I know I'm supposed to be a big girl now, all grown up and what not, but I really just want to sit down and play with it myself:)
And before anybody points it out, I get that there probably shouldn't be an ice cream cone in a picnic basket, it would melt! But I don't care.
I'm particularly chuffed with the 'basket' which doubles as a mini picnic blanket too.
I was even very clever (forethought and everything) when I was making it and used organza ribbon for the corner ties instead of the matching fabric ties I'd originally planned when I thought about it.
I mean, we all know that the navy and other big burly knot tying blokes are secretly trained by five year olds so I figured that ribbon with just enough texture to stay in a bow, but slippery enough for me to be able to work out the knots Chloe will no doubt tie in them was the perfect choice.
The only question now is do I wrap it up and stash it out of the way until her birthday, or do I hide it as is in case I think of anything else to add to it?
