My dresden

I have just taken part in a swap where the main item is to be a dresden plate.....


Just look at what Sharon made for me..... it is just gorgeous and fresh and happy.... I love it soooooooo much...

Sharon also popped in a bit of extra since bunnies and chocolate are around at this time of year.... a perfect tin for treasures once evening snacks and hot drinks are done with....


I helped Sharon out at the beginning of the year to conquer some fears ... and sent her a mug rug.... (Yes, unbelievably there are people out there who don't like mug rugz!!!!!....)

... now as part of our swap we were asked for some details..... including anything we didn't like.... I said "brussel sprouts" (sorry lovers of brussel sprouts) and reckoned I would be pretty safe in a sewing swap....

well.... it seems I was not safe from Sharons' ingenuity ..... a mugrug... featuring brussel sprouts!


Sharon specially designed and printed these so I am very touched... and it has given me one of the biggest laughs... (I nearly had one of those mature age leaks!)

 I do love those brussel sprouts.... just not the edible kind

Such a lovely bundle, some beauty, some yummy and some laugh.... just perfect...


Righto, Gotto Go.... I need to decide the most appropriate place for the mug rug..... and it's time for a  Beer, Wine, Latte....
