A couple of weeks ago I had the good fortune to celebrate another year above ground. My lovely stitching friend Leanne and I are sharing in a birthday swap this year and I was so excited to open my parcel from her on my big day. Just look at all these goodies Leanne made me, and all in some of my favourite Bonnie and Camille fabrics.
A needlebook with a matching stitchery. The second photo shows the lovely spotty flannel on the inside of the needlebook and the felt inner for storing all my needles and pins.
There was also this sweet project pouch made in 'Bliss', which Leanne has beautifully quilted....
And all of my gorgeous goodies together, see those cute crochet flowers and Leanne's House postcard, aren't they sweet!!
Disclaimer: There may also have been some Caramello Chocolate in this parcel, no prizes for guessing why it didn't make the photo shoot! Thankyou again Leanne, I was spoiled rotten, and am so thrilled with my lovely handmade gifts. Leanne's birthday is coming up soon, so I hope she will enjoy her goodies from me too.
I was lucky enough to attend my first ever retreat last weekend, I had a wonderful time, and worked on lots of projects(no new starts for me, wasn't I a good girl...lol). Once I get some pics taken I will be back to share soon. In the meantime I have over 200 blog posts to catch up on and see what everyone's been up to. Till next time...... happy stitching........
