This week I have been working on some new patchwork pincushions . Quite big ones too!
I was having a bit of a feeling down kind of a day, when a parcel arrived tthrough my letterbox. I assumed it was for Hubby, as he had ordered some stuff online.But I was wrong, as I turned it over I realised it had been sent all the way from Italy! Well I was so excited, inside was the most thoughtful and special gft from the lovely Michela at Little Secrets From My GardenIsn't it gorgeous! A sweet little purse in red leather! I love it Michela I really do!
What a sweet lady you are!
Michela sent a lovely little note saying that the purse was a thank you for the brooches I had sent when she won a giveaway of mine!
Really,there was no need to send me a gift Michela, but it was a very kind thought and I REALLY appreciate it!
It takes pride of place in the bag I had from Hubby from my birthday!
In other news, we had a lovely weekend in Brighton, visiting my daughter at uni .We had a little trip out to Devils Dyke in the South Downs.We Watched the handgliders and people doing this sport, although I don't know what it's called.It was a beautiful clear day butVERY cold.We had a very cozy pub lunch there too!
My daughter and I had a fit of the giggles watching one poor chap trying to take off.He kept trying to run off the edge of the hill but got knocked down by the wind The poor chap must've been knackered by the time he took off! Luckily he was out of earshot so he didn't hear our giggles!
They are made from Hexy patchwork on both sides and I shall be popping them into my Tiny Shop later today!
I just love Hexy patchwork, so relaxing! I love picking the colours and fabrics too!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
