Pwetty pwetty fings

I dashed to the parcel office the moment I got home and found the little red card on the door mat. I was expecting maybe goodies for the Makey 'do' goodie bags, nothing actually for me though. I was very excited to find three parcels. One was indeed for the Makey 'do' and I will blog that amazing haul one the other blog in good time. In the second package were some stamps for a book I sent to Wonderwoman and,very generously, two fat quarters some gingham ribbon and some buttons. Thanks you for that lovely surprise!

The third package was the lovely necklace that I had chosen as my April pay day Folksy purchase. This is really beautiful, the beads are such a lovely colour and the necklace has a weight to it which is very pleasing and it came packaged up so nicely. I don't hesitate for a moment in sending you over to Concept Design Form to look at her other work.

It's not all take, take, take I did do a little posting of my own this week. When I received my hand spun wool from Knitz and Bitz I knew that I would be making at least one brooch and this was the first. The wool is lovely to knit. It is a brilliant tension and behaves itself beautifully. I am off to Folksy next to treat Mum to a hank of their yarn. And this brooch? This is for Zoe who spun the wool. I hope she likes it! x
