some "thank you"s to say....

One of the things I love about winter is flannel PJ's..... sooooo comfy ... I also love soups and casseroles, hot puddings and electric blankets..... quilts and crochet blankets....

Another of the things I love about winter is Winter themed swaps!!

I was lucky enough to receive a bunch of parcels from Deb from Frog Cottage Designs (now anyone who has Frog in their blog name must be very nice!!!)  

Have a look see what was in my envelope... these cheerful looking parcels....

... with loads of lovely goodies inside....

.... I love this saying and such a pretty stitchery .....

 ... another lovely stitchery on a pincushion... some thread (so pretty)...chai tea (gone) and a darling little angel doll .....

.... as well as a lovely kit (sorry about the light from the flash).. for a needlecase and a bag.... so very cute

... I put the mini quilt in my stand as it has been bare too long... the angel is keeping it company...

just perfect

thank you so much Deb
I love it all

Deb I have emailed but I keep getting messages to say my comments and emails are undeliverable..... I hope some of them are coming through

Jeanette sent me some very beautiful Japanese fabric for my collection of blocks that I am making 
thanks so much Jeanette... they are perfect

... at the bloggers meet Michelle gave out some stitchery designs.... aren't they sweet?  thanks Michelle... I'm looking forward to stitching those up....

... and Mary made up these lovely little shirts out of dishcloths... she said they were very easy to do
(????? hmmmmmm) - but I'm not about to pull mine apart to prove it....
Thanks Mary... maybe you will just have to do a tutorial so show us just how easy it is?

... so I have been a very lucky ducky this week... thank you everyone ..... 

Righto, Gotto Go, I have blocks and secret things to make so I can give some things away too!!

  9. Hello Fiona,

    What beautiful pressies from Deb. Have fun stitching up Michelle's designs. I see you have stolen "Alf's shirt from Home and Away (the teatowel).
    If you don't want that shiny patch on your photo put your camera setting to "behind glass" this makes the photo so much clearer and gets rid of that shine. Have a great day, Winter here.

    Happy days.

  14. What a lovely collection! The little hanging looks so great in the stand.
    What do I like about winter?? everything - layering clothes, feeling snuggly under a doona at night time instead of just one sheet, and a million other things.
