I didn't mean to, but I entered a giveaway on my friend Julie's blog last month.
Her blog is a place where I go to rest, to be inspired, to breathe - and I leave comments.
One of my comments became an entry in her Spring Angel giveaway and bless his heart, 'Mr Julie' drew my name out of the hat as the winner!
When Julie told me I was teary.
When the angel arrived via post from New Zealand on Thursday I was even tearier. The love poured out as the wrappings fell away, love and care from sweet Julie...
Julie, you're an angel. xx
Have a lovely relaxed visit to Julie's blog over HERE, and you may want to brew a cuppa because you might not want to leave for a while...
Remember I told you the other day that Heather had come to visit and we'd both spent the day chatting and stitching The Booby Bird design?
The next day she 'framed' her bird in the most beauttful pillow!
The fabric was a gift from her daughter Barbra so this is a very special pillow indeed.
Heather has more photos HERE on her blog so head over and have a look. You'll also find links to Breast Cancer sites with information that could save your life. Isn't she thoughtful!? I had not even considered that when I shared the free pattern for The Booby Bird.
Thanks dear Heather! xx
If you missed the blog post about The Booby Bird you'll find it HERE, and the free pattern download link is there too.
When Mr E and I decided to sign a new lease on our rental home for another year I decided to spruce up the bathroom with bright coloured towels, a new bath mat and shower curtain as well as fresh bathroom accessories.
The palette is orange and shades of teal with splashes of green, lemon and grey.
When I arrived at Heather's the other day she blessed me with this pretty handmade basket and she'd even sewn a teal doily on the front and filled it with soapy things...
It's perfect for storing our toiletries inside and has added that something 'extra' the room needed!
This weekend I'm playing with some Flower Sugar fabrics and quite a bit of associated hand quilting in a make-it-up-as-I-go-along design...
It's also the Australian Moto GP so Mr E and I will be glued to the race urging on Jorge Lorenzo to a victory with ginger beer and plenty of nibblies to snack on!
Hope your weekend is just as much fun as mine!
