Thursday 3 rd July 2014.... Lots to tell you...

Do you like my Header picture?  Goodness its great is'nt it!  I have to tell you all how happy this made me... Its a wonderful card from a wonderful person who cheered me up and put a nice smile on my face.  Its a beautiful card... and here are the other bits that came with it...

Oh this gave me a happy day!!

Here is what was sent...

The most color-fullest bag I have ever seen... its beautiful... and I adore color so its perfect!!  Ooooh yes and pretty buttons, gem stones and my favorite variegated thread.... just love the color of it.  And the best thing of all... a tape measure!! Yes seriously!! See I dont have one!!  

The lovely person who sent all this to me was June... from Butterfly Wings Blog... 
It was very kind and thoughtful of you to send me this wonderful gift.. Thank You ever so much.. and yes you did make me happy :) xx

Well I am pleased to say that some things I posted out have reached their destination... I am over the moon that the person loved what I posted... 

I sent this all the way to USA and to a lovely lady called Belinda, from Samplings From A Blue Ribbon Girl.....she is a very talented designer and I love her work... I sent is as I wanted to say Thank You.. see she is trying to raise money for breast cancer by taking part in a huge charity event.  Walking 60 miles over 3 days .... Go Belinda!!  

If you have a minute or too and would like to support Belinda in this wonderful cause then please feel free to head over to her charity page... HERE ... Thank You.

Remember this clue I gave...

Well here is what I made....

I sent this with some ribbon and a handmade button I bought when in London at the Victoria and Albert museum (V&A).  It is very pretty I thought the person I posted this to would like it...

This is what I posted...
I love posting gifts, it makes me so happy :-)...

Also something else I know has reached it destination was this....

Remember this??  Well like I say I know it has reached its destination but cannot show you it just yet as the person wants to post it a little later in the month... sorry you will have to wait a little longer!! 

I was lucky enough to be selected to be the next person to stitch this lovely travelling chart... It was forwarded to me fromt he lovely Kim from Wisdom with Needle and Thread.  And look what she enclosed for me!!  Thank You Kim, very kind of you :)

I cannot wait to start stitching this!! Looking at the list of where its been is brilliant!!  It certainly has traveled!!  Once I have stitched it I will offer it to the next person and off a travelling it will go again!! What fun!! And I am thrilled to be a part of this :)

A lot of you are aware that I am participating in the Christmas in July swap... And Yipppeee look what arrived today!! OMG!!! I cannot believe where it has come from!! 

I cannot even put into words how excited I am about this!!! OMG!!!  Ah but... I cannot open it until July 25 th ... that is the rules!  OMG this is torture!  I have asked Jon to hide it and give it to me on the 25 th July!!   Exciting!!!
