Gorn to the U.S.A






I'm sorry about the title, really I am. I think it might just be one of those days! Anyway I can finally show you what I sent to my mug swap lady, the lovely Calico Daisy. Now Calico said she didn't drink tea or coffee just loads of Diet Coke and an occasional hot chocolate. I toyed with the idea of sending a Coke glass but in the end decided upon this chocolatey polka dot mug. I found a tiny whisk to make a really good hot choc, some little napkins with chocolates on, a bar of fair trade chocolate, some sachets and some cola cubes and bottles. I think the edibles were a really important part of this package! From here I added some hand made items- a potholder in choccy colours and a set of four felt coasters in Coke colours. I also knitted a Battenburg pin cushion, this was such fun I will definitely make more. I then cruised the haberdashery store ad my craft room for some supplies and found all sorts of lovely chocolate coloured fabric, thread and ribbon. I had a brilliant time putting this together and really hope Michele finds the bits useful.
I am now getting working on Mollycupcakes heart swap for my partner Molly and Izzie. That's proving fun too and a much better option than hoovering the stairs!

Hi Jenny, just arrived back from London, I've received a thank you from Kitty. Still no parcel for me though.
Also, thank you so much for the 2 books, they look really good and when my feet stop throbbing and I've had some sleep I'll sit in the sun and have a good look at them.
