Today's post is bought to you courtesy of Archie! If it weren't for him, then I would have pretty much nothing to say except 'It's the holidays - hip hip hurray!!!'
Having logged off and come home from work for the last time until January 5th, and thinking things couldn't get much better, there was a superb parcel waiting for me at home...
Now if you want to find out how I ended up with said parcel, please check out this awesome post, video clips 'n all, but for those impatient souls, go on, take a look what was inside...
Want a closer look? Please bare in mind there was a time delay between the first picture and the rest whilst I oooh'ed and aaaah'ed at Helen's handiwork, pondered whether I would share when the kids came home or not and stroked the Echo!
For those who somehow aren't familiar, Helen is Archie's pet/owner and spokesperson; she makes beautiful things and is incredibly generous with her words, time and skills. Archie is a rescue dog who is very very good at picking winners :)
So here's the detail - I am so in awe of these teeny perfect stitches...
Amazing huh!? If unsuspecting visitors jump to the conclusion that this is an FB original, I won't be in a rush to correct them!
I feel so lucky; Helen you know this will be loved and has come to a good home, thank you xxx
If you have time for one last photo, this is what dear son bought home from school today - sewing!! He is so proud and so am I!
Well I hope you get a good night's sleep (or a fun Saturday if you are of the 'other side of the world' persuasion), and aren't kept awake with the excitement of all the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway draws that will be going on!
I'll be back in the morning with my winner!
