Lovely surprise

Postie rang my doorbell today and handed me an envelope, i wasn't expecting anything so it came as a real surprise when i saw my name on the front and Barbs (no blog) name on the back. Look what was inside, Barb has made me this stunning beaded scissor fob and enclosed a lovely pair of scissors to attach to it. There were also some other nice goodies too and a book by an author i have never read. Quite a few ladies at Stitch and Stash have been RAK'd by Barb today and are now proud owners of one of her fabulous beaded fobs. Thank you so much Barb, you really did brighten my day, i did rub the scissors with a coin as you instructed so as not to cut our friendship when i use them. DH was most impressed with your beading skills and had to have a feel of it, but then pointed out that i have a few hobbys already and i have no more room in my cupboard to put beads to try this out ... i have beads already like all stitchers :-)

Mamma bunny has news from the burrow ...
We have a new addition, this little 'pink lady' is going to live with a new baby when she decides to make an entrance into the world. Bunny doesn't have a name but i did hear a rumour that the new baby was going to be called Caitlyn. It's a year since the first bunny 'Rupert' was made. Who would have thought so many of them would have been made and sent out here in the UK and overseas. 33 were sent out in 2008 and 2 have been made so far this year. For those of you new to the blog you can see the 2008 ones here. I had a Happy Mothers Day email from one of the bunnies last weekend!

The weather here is really cold, windy and awful today, i think i'm going to settle down and finish the motif on Beatrix this afternoon. Have a lovely weekend whatever your plans.

Your gift is lovely and I am sure well deserved.

Baby bunny is so cute but she reminds me that we have not heard anything from Harriet recently. I do hope she is still happy with aunty Karen.
