It may be raining outside…

But I have 2 good reasons to smile.

Firstly, a few weeks ago I won Toni’s (The Red Boot Quilt Company) giveaway and a package from Australian made its way to little old me in Rugby :o)  So nice to open the door to our friendly postman and have something to take from him other than bills.

I just love that feeling of opening a present…not knowing what might be inside…

A lovely card, some chocolate, Charm Squares and some beautiful sock yarn! 

My eldest is an avid knitter and I'm hoping will make me some socks from the beautiful yarn.  My youngest is an avid chocolate eater and I'm sure will help me eat the sweet...and the fabrics well no one is getting those...I have already got plans for them!

The other reason I’m smiling is that I have truly understood the crochet instructions for the Mollie Make flower I was struggling with and have made a whole bouquet of them!  It has kinda taken a life of its own and I even invested in some crochet hooks (don’t you love ebay!) of various sizes so I can play with scale and different yarns.  I really really don’t need another hobby!

Until next time....

Lovely gifts you received Jane and I knew you just wouldn't be able to stop at one flower. A great way to use up those oddments too. Love the variegated ones.
