Some days I really struggle to think of something worthy of telling you (don't pretend you haven't noticed!), but other days I have difficulty knowing what to choose - today I have loads to show and tell!
So for now, I am going with the 'kindness of friends'.
Since coming back from holiday I have received some lovely pieces of post, a pretty Thank You from Victoria, who blogs at Boutique Uniquely, makes lovely things and received one of my PIF packages; and I also got some 'winnings'!!
Yes I do sometimes win - I was so lucky to get these beautiful Denyse Schmidt and Tina Givens from the lovely ladies Reene and Yvonne over at Nellies Niceties; fellow Brit Bee Fiona was their overall winner, I was 3rd, you really should check out the fantastic apron she received - I think 'pinnies' should be the new 'hoodies', but it won't solve the problem those poor boys suffer not being able to pull their f-ing trousers up over their skinny butts!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Anyhoo, I digress and I want to show you these...
Lovely lovely Sarah, oh she of Narcoleptic In The Cupboard, who was my partner in the Brit Quilt Swap and received my full-on Skull quilt package, and recently her August Bee blocks and birthday bits - well, she unexpectedly sent me this most wonderful thank you. The mug rug is totally brilliant and hilarious and will be given pride of place on my desk when I go back to work - move over files and keyboards (I have 2, don't ask), I am going to put this right there, in the middle of my workspace!
The noughts and crosses are made of the most brilliantly twisted and funny Japanese print of murderous critters which Sarah deemed suitable for your Master O - she was completely right, he, and we all love it! I seem to have forgotten to explain the rules and tactics to the small folk, so the winning goes on!
And then there's some fab 'softies' to make up...
Sarah, you are such a great, talented and remarkable friend, and I am such a lucky lady to know you!
Thank you, thank you, thank you ladies xxx
