The first one to arrive was from Jo in Tas - she had a giveaway to mark her 100th post and her blogoversary and i won, whooppee!!!! She well and truly spoilt me -
that lovely button necklace looks lovely on! and i have read the magazine from cover to cover whilst sat in front of a roaring fire with a big glass of wine!
Then i had another parcel arrive today from WMK -
more brilliant mags to look thro and get ideas from - how lucky am i! this was a swap as she was desperate for a new mag called 'the knitter' - i had seen it in Smiths so i sent it on to her.
and lastly, but by no means least, was a belated christmas/birthday pressie from Trashy
she has knitted me this gorgeous neckwarmer in my favorite colours and just look at that lovely fabric - cupcakes!! yay!
I had a couple of other parcels, very naughty of me, from amazon - just couldn't help myself but have decided it stops now. I did buy this book which made my hubby roar with laughter
phrases like shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted, kept coming from him! I did take his point but actually its not a bad read and does have some helpful tips!
It did have one bit which might make you smile - there is a chapter titled crafts - some of the comments were - crafts are hot - crafts are the best fun - crafts make brilliant presents -, well, who knew!!!!! maybe i should show that to some people i know who look down their noses at anything handmade!!! So, there you are girls - we are 'in'! but you all knew that already!!
well both Molly and Lilly have had enough of me blogging! they are both sitting looking very bored!
so i had better get a move on and take them for a walk - as it seems to be getting colder again i will be wearing my lovely new neckwarmer, Trashy!
