I had not done any of the text, & had only managed to upload the pics, with much fiddling about, to get them in the order I wanted them.
I must be slowing down, or the colder weather
The big news of the day is, my lucky draw on Uberstitch's giveaway, arrived from Florida.
Woo hoo! How lucky am I?
Gom went out to walk Leo, & came racing up the stairs with this wonderful parcel. We had heard the dogs barking, but did not realise they were barking for anyone so close to home.
I was so excited, but I waited until Gom returned, as he was as curious as me, to see the contents. How perfect is that? Old patterns for wrapping. I used to work in a shop, where we used outdated patterns for wrapping!
Just look at this lovely little book- Pam must have known I love miniature books, & this is just darling.
I read out this quote to Gom-
"If you know a friend has had a bad day, take her out for coffee or maybe dinner."
Look at the lovely contents, of the parcel. Two dish towels by Orla Kiely, which Pam intended using to make a bag, but she ran out of time. Hmmmn perhaps I can manage.
And look at the lovely fabrics.
So different to anything I have in the sad old stash! I will have to get my thoughts together to decide how to use them.
The lovely wee card had a very nice message inside, & all in all, I am very thrilled with my wonderful "WIN". Thank you so much Pam!!
Just a little mention here for Geta's Quilting Studio. I urge you to go & visit her site, if you love quilting. She has the most wonderful quilts & projects.
Her work is just beautiful!
I hope all Mothers out there in Blogland had a wonderful Mother's Day.
I had a lovely weekend all round. We had family for our Granddaughter's 20th Birthday get together.
Our son who lives in OZ came to stay for the weekend, so that was extra family to love & have the pleasure of the company.
