Happy Friday everyone!
I just realised that I haven’t showed you what I received for my secret santa yet, so I though now would be a perfect time to do so.
My secret santa was the lovely Kimberley from New-Zealand, and how spoilt I got! I received a beautiful skein of lamb wool from NZ, a project bag, a mug cosy and a pair of socks that Kimberley made, very cute stitch markers and a very nice Christmas card.
Totally spoilt! The socks were slightly too big for me, but they fit my husband perfectly so he is now the very lucky owner of those beautiful socks! I’m a but jealous to be honest!
Before Christmas as well, I finally got back into a little bit of cross stitch and made a bookmark for Claire, as I know she collects them. I couldn’t show you because I was waiting for her to receive my letter, and she has way before christmas but I guess I forgot to post about it until now!
I changed the colours from a parrot pattern I found on deviant art to make it a lorikeet. If you are interested, here is the chart for it.
I wish you all a great weekend!
Today is a bit of a special Wednesday as it’s also my birthday!! I got so spoilt by my friends and family, and I’m currently in a bit of a food coma, as my husband treated me to laksa 🙂 yum!
I just wanted to share with you some crafty goodies I recently received.
Yep, that’s a lot of threads! Most of them are DMC as well, which is so nice and they all came sorted in those 4 boxes. I did a bit of rearranging and also bought a fifth box to finish fitting all the extra threads. There are still 2 small food containers filled with threads, plus my own ‘collection’ that I need to add. I also got 2 huge crates filled with cross stitch and crochet books/magazines.
I started to make this cute platypus Christmas ornament from one of the magazines I found in there.
I also got gifted not one, but two books to knit socks from my husband and I can’t wait to make a start on those!
And finally I got some lovely flowers 💐
Aren’t birthdays just the best?
