I was totally overcome with excitement , so I carefully opened the box . I don't usually like surprises but I was enjoying this one !!
I couldn't believe it , it was one of Sam's beautifully handmade cards . I was quite giddy at this point so I sat and read her lovely message then continued carefully unpacking the box .
Look what the lovely lady has sent as a thank you , how kind and thoughtful !!! A kookaburra which my youngest son has added to his family of stuffed toy birds ( he has a Mallard Duck , A Humming Bird , Owls , and a House Sparrow and now a Kookaburra ). Also a pack of pencils as well as one of Sam's Beautifully made Sun catcher . Check out the beautiful detail on this glass .
I am going to have to find a very special place for this , I can't wait to see the sun light bounce of the glass and crystals !!! Sam also makes some beautiful glass beaded jewellery (and sun catchers ) check her out she has lot's of creative stuff on the go !!! As well as being a big hearted generous Lady , thank you Sam and I'm so glad Hannabelle Likes her new home and family.
Then whilst talking to a friend in our very small front garden the post lady pasted me a purple package , ooohhh two parcels in one day how lucky am I !!!!. Once inside I dashed upstairs with camera in hand to the best light in the house to open my eagerly anticipated parcel . It didn't disappoint take a look !!
I won this superbly knitted bag a week ago on a yarntastic blog called Fleur Cotton , I was quite gob smacked when I found out I had won her lovely creation ,the knitting and detail are beautifully executed and it is lined with such a sweet little floral print . When I entered the give away on fleurs blog I had a little lady in mind who I know would love this and she will be receiving it very soon .It was quite a morning , but then I had to put all the excitement aside and go to work !!!
However this evening I have been playing with my new printer , I was so pleased with my photo's of my threads spools I thought they would look good blown up and framed . I have a very bare wall at the top of the first floor stairs which needs some images to create some intrest !!! So I have blown them up to A4 size prints and they look quite good just need some frames now !! Maybe that will be tomorrows little mission !!
So ta ta for now and have a grand weekend !!
