As seems to be becoming ‘normal’ its been a while since I last posted! Shame on me, I know. There is loads to catch up on but I have a very particular reason to post today and that is because I received some great goodies in the post that I wanted to share.
In January Ali at Snipsnaphappy set up a little new year swap which was very good of her! I’ve only taken part in one swap before and thought it was about time I did another one.
I received details of my swap partner and set to work on putting together some lovely things for her. However, I can’t tell you about those yet as I haven’t heard that she’s received them and its all about the surprise in this swap!!
I also knew that at some point I’d receive a treat in the post from the person who was given me to make for! And what a treat I received. Let me introduce Claire from The Hookery!! Look what Claire sent to me:
How lucky am I??? Very! The felt needle case is beautifully handmade in the softest felt. Very much needed too as I have my needles currently rattling around in a tin which never struck me as very wise. (Although like Claire I love tins). And as for that owl, what can I say. He has lots of personality with his big eyes and he smells wonderful as he is stuffed full of yummy lavender! Of course buttons of any sort are fabulous – and chocolate ones are always a treat!!
Somehow I had never come across The Hookery before, but it’s a lovely crochet blog and it’s now on my reading list. Do have a look and say ‘hi’ to Claire while you’re there!
