Two things arrived today to put a huge smile on my face. First package I picked up off the lobby floor was my printable fabric. I've been waiting a week for this and now, finally, I can crack on and finish my latest Woollie pony project.
My second package was even more exciting. It was my gift from the springtime Folksy swap that Zoe had arranged - my package was from Alison of Love Hector.
Wrapped in pretty pink tissue, I received a "pillowcase apron" with stunning pink ribbon ties to keep it in place around my waist. The various pockets perfect for holding whatever I fancy so as not to mis-place anything. Paul and Katie immediately thought it would make a good sewing apron and I think I have to agree with them. Carefully re-wrapping the gift to look at later (as I had a house full of guests today), it was only when I returned that I found, hidden in one of the pockets, a delightful little brooch - very spring-like with it's green fields and little woolly sheep. All very much a big hit for me.
Huge thank you to Alison for making my day (and future days) very happy, and to Zoe for arranging the swap.
Go and check out Alison's website for details of her lovely range of "vintage, up-cycled, unique" goodies on Folksy and Misi and keep up-to-date with Alison through her blog. She has a good range of bags, brooches and other fabulous handmade items.
