Firstly Happy New Year to you!
As i have not done a post for a while this one is going to be a bit of everything!
I would like to thank very much Joy and Marian, my lovely australian friends, for the beautiful gifts they sent methey are just gorgeous and i feel very lucky indeed!
I also received some beautiful craft books this year which i have been too busy reading and therefore, at the moment, not much doing!
these were from my lovely friend Sarah who has a gorgeous shop called 'the little red hen'!
and the above were from..... me! i just happened to be on Amazon, as you do, and they just leapt out at me - i just love the felt one and have been looking in my lots wardrobes to see if there are any jumpers i can felt!
I also bought some wool as i happened to be passing John Lewis - it was in the sale so i felt i just had to have it
its Rowan little big wool - don't know what i'm going to do with it yet mind, but my motto is you can never have enough wool or fabric!
Talking of fabric (did you see that seamless (not meant to be a pun!) link!) - a few months ago i did a friendship star swap which Dionne organised - and i got some lovely blocks back
a HUGE thanks to Dionne for organising it, it was great fun and i am well pleased with the lovely stars i received!
(note to self - i will get the link thing sorted - soon as trashy comes back i will be asking for her help!)
I am loving this magazine at the moment - have you seen it? i expect you all have as i'm usually a bit behind everyone else!
have decided to subscribe to it as a b'day treat to myself as it does have some lovely patterns and great articles.
I have another HUGE THANK YOU - i received the most fantastic parcel just before new year from the lovely Emma
so sorry the pic is not very good - Emma sent me the most gorgeous necklace/bracelet, a beautiful silver button and some lovely fabric as a thank for two little quilts i made for the Miss Ps! I have worn the necklace/bracelet ever since! I feel sooooo lucky to receive such a very generous gift!
well i think thats it for the moment, am sitting here freezing in PJs and woolly socks as the heating only just kicking in and we had a very hard frost last night - think i might just have a big mug of tea and possibly bacon and eggs - mmmmmm!
