Thank you

Hello dear friends

I am still here, just very busy at the moment. I would like to thank you all for your kind wishes on my new granddaughter, she is gorgeous and has stolen the heart of both Grandpa and myself. My heartfelt thanks to all who have emailed me and sent cards and gifts on this very happy occasion.

There's not been much time for crafting this past couple of weeks, hardly a stitch has been done.

I did have a lovely Sunday last weekend with a couple of hours to myself where i managed to make up the challenge piece for May, i had already stitched it in plenty of time for the reveal.

A lovely free design from Sablaise. Just a little pincushion this time for me, not very challenging, the other finishes can be seen in the album.

In the evening i have been more than a little tired and have had the knitting needles out instead of the stitching when i have felt the need for a crafting fix.

It doesn't need so much concentration to whip up a little bunny.

This little RAK was sent off to Hazel to brighten her days and she has named her Rosie Posy. I hope she is well behaved for you Hazel and i'm pleased that she arrived safely and you like her.

This little beauty dropped through my mailbox as a surprise for me. Cathey was the winner of my blogoversary draw at the beginning of the year.

She thought i would like 'a bunny for a bunny' and made me this beautiful little lady. The fabric is so gorgeous, can you see the tiny rabbits that are printed on it.

Thank you Cathey for this special little gift xx

Before i publish my post, someone else would like to say a few words....

Dear Mums friends

The words "thank you" just don't seem good enough to say for the wonderful cards and gifts that you sent to us to help celebrate the birth of our new baby daughter Isabelle.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kindness, it really has been a very emotional time for us all and you have all made it even more special

love from Amy, Paul & Isabelle xxx

I did receive the newspapers and stopped what I was doing to read them and I enjoyed them SO much. I loved all the wedding celebrations (I bought the DVD on Tuesday and have watched it 4 times since then. Should have been British ;) ).
