Gemma and I had agreed to send 4 handmade things and 2 bought/thrifted items. I received the most beautiful bag with a gorgeous flowery lining which came with a little lace brooch with a pretty gemstone middle which I can take off and wear if I want.
I also received this lovely double sided bunting which I am going to hang in my sewing room
This cute little needle case complete with pins and needles
The sweetest little patchwork brooch which Izzy absolutely loves (I had been admiring these on Gemma's blog!) and a pack of cute blue buttons
Some gorgeous coasters which are very 'Cath Kidston'
and a lovely polka dot notebook (sorry about the photo quality on this one. Took it on my phone in a dark room) I'm going to use this to jot down all my sewing ideas
I think you'll agree that I did very well. Everything is so well made too. It was a lovely surprise. Gemma received my parcel too today so I'll post some photos of what I sent tomorrow. Thanks Gemma and also Dolly Dollop for organising!
Remember my half built kitchen?? Well surprise surprise its still half built although I do now have a working cooker and dishwasher again which is great. Guess what we're going to be doing over the week-end....
Yes filling a skip with the old kitchen so that our garden no longer looks like we should be on 'Shameless'
Oh the glamour!
