During the last couple of weeks, when I was failing miserably to blog, several lovely presents arrived through the post.
First of all I won part of the giveaway on Rachel's blog and she sent me this gorgeous fabric basket which just makes me smile
along with chocolate chicks - yummy! And some fab Paperchase owl buttons - which have flown away (with the help of Daisy and Fred I think) and so couldn't be photographed!
Emma sent this gorgeous handpainted box (with handmade chocolates inside!!) in the parcel containing my Bossy BIG Sister's birthday present - you'll have to wait to see what that was when she blogs it (it was really fab and she was very lucky that I posted it on to her because I would have liked it for myself!)
When I went to my local "Stitch and Bitch" Group a couple of weeks ago one of the girls was having a de-stash and I couldn't resist two skeins of Yarn Yard 4 ply. Especially as Patti had kindly offered to wind them for me - this was an adventure in itself:
How beautiful are these two cakes of yarn? Almost too nice to knit!
But I'll leave you today with an even more beautiful thing.....................
a very, very muddy and wet Dorothy Locket after two hours of Scouts outside in the pouring rain last Tuesday evening. I think she looks gorgeous!!!
