My package arrived yesterday and Rita sent me the cutest pinkeep and some wonderful goodies too! She said this was her first pinkeep and boy...did she ever do a lovely job! What a cute saying too!

Thanks so much Rita :)

A Surprise!

We came home from Dublin on Sunday evening – we’d been to see H’s family and help his brother celebrate his 30th birthday. I was very tired and…maybe even a bit cranky…until I found that a mysterious package had been delivered over the weekend. I wasn’t expecting anything, so was delighted to find this:

Edda had sent me a Crazy Exchange, and I love the bourse that she sent – it’s a lovely pattern (I think it’s Three Emblems freebie by Papillon Designs which can be found here) and Edda’s stitching and finishing is really lovely. Thanks to Edda also for including some lovely well-chosen extras for me. Now to get my head down and work out what to stitch back for Edda – by the Crazy Exchange rules, I have 30 days to ponder, stitch, finish and send something back to her. Needle to the ready!

Happy stitching

Thank you Jen

Jen in North Carolina sent me a lovely return exchange. Such a cute, blue denim little bag with sweet stitching on the front. And, she sent a very lovely bookmark with paisley shaped teardrops - all stitched one over one. Terrific. Thank you Jen, very much. You've made my day!

Thank you Wendy Jo......

This is what I found in my mailbox. A lovely snowman from Wendy Jo. So this snowman travelled all the way from the USA to the Netherlands. I think she did a wonderful job, and especially because I'm not good at all in crosstitch. So now it's my turn to make a gift for her. Suprise suprise, Wendy Jo you have to wait for a few weeks. groetjes Caroline

Thank you Marne!

Hi girls, just look at the gorgeous quilt I received from Marne today! I just don't know how to thank her, so I'll save a big hug until she visits the Netherlands and we will meet :) I will post some more pictures on my blog tomorrow. Marne added some lovely goodies as well, and I will make some brighter pictures tomorrow, I hope.
