She sent me all these lovely goodies including the sweetest egg shaped pinkeep ever. She also sent me 3 peices of linen - you know how I love linen! and have had such a lack of it until these recent raks! She also sent me lots of chocolate - the Toffifee have gone already :-O. She also sent a lovely PS chart which I will definitely stitch up soon. Thank you so much Brigitte. This was a wonderfully, unexpected surprise and it DID make me cry but in a happy way. Here is a close up of the pinkeep:
Yesterday also brought something I won from the One World One Heart blogging event. This was a pendant I won from Tina. Her work is exquisite! I wore it last night on a chain. It is beautiful. I have no idea how you made it but you're very clever! So thank you for that.
Some were asking about the Besem soap I purchased. Well, so far so good. The soaps are all made from natural ingredients and essential oils and 10% of the purchase goes to charity. They smell lovely and have not dried my skin at all. They foam up really well. Here is the link to her Etsy shop if you are interested:
I have also been inspired by Sharlotte's punchneedle this week and have decided to order a small starter kit and a punchneedle and see how I get on. It hasn't arrived yet but will let you know how I get on with it.Things are starting to look up a little. DH had a day off yesterday and although he has gone back this morning, he will be back on Tuesday for a couple of weeks so coming to the end of it all I think. The Japan trip will be hard when he goes but glad it is nearly over and we can get back to some normality. Thank you for all your kindnesses in thoughts, words and deeds! xx
