I didn't feel very lucky this morning, Anna had croup in the night and it is so horrid. None of us were firing on all cylinders this morning and I had thought that the parcel waiting at the post office for us was Will's Lego board. Nope, no Lego, but a lovely parcel for Mummy. I was lucky enough to be one of two winners of a give away from Tiny White Daisies which was quite staggering in it's generosity. Firstly everything was packed up in this gorgeous calico bag, just right for popping a project in to keep it clean and Playdough free.
The bag was secured with the lovely felty flower brooch, which is just my kind of thing. There was more handmade loveliness in the from of this gorgeous covered note book. None of this had been listed as part of the prize so what a lovely surprise on top of this gorgeous wooly treasure! Four balls of Noro, a 100g skein of 4ply and some wooden needles. I am sooo lucky and so grateful. I spoke to Mum- knitter extrordinaire and she suggested some gloves with the 100g skein. Now Mum actually is clever enough to knit proper gloves- I am not- it is a thing of wonder to behold. Unlike me Mum can handle four needles without having to hold one in her mouth! I am tempted to try some crochet squares or triangles all joined up for the Noro and made into a summer scarf. Tiny White Daisies has used some stunning yarn to make a triangular shawl affair which also appeals.
The treasure will be added to my wool stash until I have cleared some more projects but for instant gratification who can beat the other surprise in the package? (doesn't look very poorly here does she?)
