Fun at the Fair

Aaaah - don't you love it when Mr Postman brings a surprise ..........

Joy went on holiday recently and sent me a something from over the seas and far away ...............


quite unexpected.........


I've never had a ride in a London cab ...... and it had a very pretty pack on needles....
thank you so much Joy.........

Karen from Selvage Blog sent me these lovely fabrics.....


..... so delicious and they came with tea.... more delicious.......Thank you so much Karen. 

I've been stroking, and planning, and drinking tea and looking at this.....


.... my present to me from the Craft Fair ....

along with these useful bits and pieces..........


oh... and something to stroke..............


A piece of
'I have to have that even if I don't know what I will use it for'

Hubz has been making a water feature and we recently purchased some Louisiana Iris's - some of them are flowering...........




 
Such gentle prettiness..............  I hope you have lots over the weekend.....

I need to stitch my 'Stitching Around the Block'.......


and do some more of my Penny Rug for Elaine..........

    Some great buys from the fair. Just be mindful my pumpkin fabric was one that I just had to buy and didn't know what to use it for lol
    I love the background fabric for your stitchery!
    Can't wait for it to come and visit.
    Happy stitching.
