I was delighted to hear that I had won the bloggy giveaway on May Kristin's blog, especially when I realised she was sending out some Tilda goodies, but you can imagine my complete amazement when I saw what was in the parcel
loads and loads of wonderful Tilda fabrics and ribbons and a stitchery pattern AND a full kit to make this beautiful angel!
Thank you so much May Kristin - this is an incredibly generous gift and I am completely overwhelmed! I can't wait to start playing with them and I already have an idea of a little something to make to send back to you!
A completely unexpected surprise was this gorgeous Valentine's card from Anna.
I had admired it when she blogged about them but didn't imagine she was sending me one! I love this idea of crocheting around a picture - I really want to learn how to do this! Thank you Anna!
I managed to get my Valentine's parcel sent to Gemma, my swap partner yesterday so hopefully it will be arriving shortly as she lives in the UK.
It has been lovely seeing all the wonderful parcels arriving in blogland - if you haven't already done so it would be great if you could send me a photo of what you received so I can do a big blog post to finish off the swap.
I've been enjoying knitting from my new book
and have nearly finished this doll
This cushion order is for a little girl who clearly loves pink!!!
and I have also been working on this
for this challenge.
On a new blogger note, Rachel, who I have "known" for several years (as I used to buy all my Rosalie Quinlan patterns from her Ebay shop before they were available over here), has finally joined us all in blogland so it would be great if you could pop over and say hi. Her work is lovely and I'm delighted to be able to "meet" her properly at last!
Finally, in my madness, I have started thinking of organising an Easter Bunny swap! Would anyone be interested?
