Lucky, lucky me!

The postman rang the bell yesterday and there were 2 for me. One was this lovely giveaway which I had won from Pippany at Pippany and the Poltisko Memoirs (If you are not familiar with Pippany's work do check out her website as she makes some really lovely things - just right for Christmas gifts for someone special or for yourself of course!)

Beautifully wrapped in soft green tissue

This is my little Hush Heart filled with lavender - a real garden scented lavender and not some horrid overpowering stuff.

A pretty label on the back

A flowered card with it

And see the dear little butterfly just about to settle on the patch of checked fabric - perhaps it's off to settle on those dinky flowers all hand embroidered there?
Thank you so very much Pippany for picking me for your giveaway.

Oh and the second letter was from the Inland Revenue informing me that I had overpaid and would be getting a refund - only £2.59 but still better than a bill - so my day was made!!!

The following are some of my creations which I found when having my sort out and which I thought you might like to see. This is a little pin cushion made using a Variety Pack from Texere Yarns and was inspired by a photo of a frosty morning I had back then.

This is another of my little crazy patchwork creations which I have framed.

And here is a fabric collage I made - not unlike the machine embroidered samples I posted yesterday is it?

And a little knitted heart
Think this is all for now - have a good weekend. We are hoping to go to Stourhead to see the autumn colour tomorrow - if the weather forecast is correct we should have a sunny clear day so it should be good. Enjoy your weekend.
