I felt so spoilt when I opened my gift from Anita at http://anitas-bedofroses.blogspot.com/ on Christmas Eve. So as not to tempt myself I hadn't even gone into the box until then. I got this great thread catcher / pincushion. It is in the cutest chicken fabric. I have looked at these on other blogs and it is something I wanted but would not of attempted myself. I also got some dishcloths, another thing I haven't tried but am very excited to own!! Anita also put in some fruit and nut candies, will be a lovely change from the 'chocolate'!! There was also 2 magazines which are already looking very well loved. They are very different from what we have here and one in particular is full of quilts I would like to try. Thank you again Anita, it was a very special present. I will post some photos of what I made for my swap partner tomorrow, I think this parcel deserves a post all of its own!
There has been some knitting again today, seemed the easiest thing to pick up. I did though choose fabric and patterns for 2 quilts which I want to get going on. One will be for my nieces 18th birthday and the other for my friend who is expecting her 2nd baby soon.
I am so thankful for the special people I have met and friendships I have made in this blogging world . I am today praying for John Travolta and his family as they try to cope with the death of his son.
