Goodies in my house

My house is full of goodies.... there is so much to tell!

Totem is back from San Fransisco and look what she brought back with her...

...lots and lots of fabulous fabrics. How excellent is she! So now we have to get busy creating. It's lucky we can multi-task as mixed in with the creating is lots of chatting, lots of tea drinking and two sets of twins to entertain!


She also gave me this amazingly gorgeous book of iron-on transfers. It has 30 sheets of transfers that are a mix of animals, people, trees, and other things... and they are so, so gorgeous. Almost too good to use! What am I going to do with them? At the moment, continue admiring them!


Here are just a few..... I love them!


Last week, the lovely, kind, thoughtful Sandrine told me she had found something for me.... and sent these magic fingertip savers. She had read about my Embrioderer's fingers and thought these might help. I told you she was lovely, kind and thoughtful! My poor fingers are still in recovery so I haven't tried these out... yet.





My giveaway from Bronwyn at Whippet Good arrived today. And check it out! Beautiful vintage fabrics, a lovely pink and green trim and a patchwork quilt pattern that doesn't look too scary - I haven't patchworked before. Because I told Bronwyn this, she also sent a 'Patchwork Basics' magazine which she said is good for beginners. Another kind and thoughtful blogger.



I also received an email this week from Sooz telling me I had won a copy of her Seamless Lace Edge Skirt. Yahoo! I love the pattern and although it is sized for a girl, Suzie has assured me I can adjust it so I can knit it for myself. So that's what I'm going to do. It's about time I made something for me I think. It's got a few tricky things I haven't done before but I'm up for the challenge.

I feel very spoilt and lucky to be surrounded by such kind and lovely peope! xxx
