Postie brought me a couple of packages today.
One i was expecting from across the pond, in it was the beautiful 28ct evenweave fabric that Sharon(daffycat) has hand dyed and offered in a drawing on her blog. I was lucky enough to be drawn the winner, just look at these superb colours and the cute card enclosed too. Thank you Sharon, i look forward to using it
The second envelope revealed a well known name and address on the back, it was from Karan. I wasn't expecting anything from her and i know she is off on her hols this week so imagine my surprise when i found this gorgeous pocketed pinkeep inside together with the beautiful scissors and also one of her handmade cards. She has written the most lovely things inside the card, thank you Karan it is stunning and the finishing is so expertly done, i will treasure it.
Sometimes life has this habit of getting a bit stressful, healthwise and other stuff but its strange how on one of these days a simple gesture can lift your spirits and make you realise that even though you have never actually met some people in real life, they have an impact on your life and can bring a smile to your face on the darkest of days that not even your family can do even though they are so close to you. Thank you ladies, you have both done this to me today.
