Okay, so is it just me or is anyone else wondering how the days seem to be passing so fast? Seriously, the past couple of weeks have been a blur... with little or no time for blogging and keeping up with everyone online. I did not expect that to happen, otherwise I would've mentioned that I'd be taking a blog break! lol
Back on track, with things to share with you, here's a peek at my crochet project progress. The next step will be blocking and then I will be able to join all my motifs together. Fingers crossed that I will finish it all by the end of the week!
Next up, I want to show you the lovely parcel of handmade goodness I received from my sweet bloggy friend, Wendy. Awhile back, when I asked her if I could send her a little something to cheer her up, she agreed... only if I would accept a parcel from her in return. Ha! As if I would say "no" to such a thing as a gift from her talented hands. ;o)
Look at the pretty sewing set she made for me...
Wendy is talented, not only with her sewing but many other needle arts plus, she crafts beautiful cards. Yes, my friend spoiled me ( and I'll never complain over that ;o).
Thank you ever so much, Wendy. I'm tickled with pleasure over your beautiful gifts - you definitely added some extra special Bliss to my
Sew Pretty Homestyle . It's such a favourite and a darling design, that I keep returning to it. Wendy made one for me from Bliss (a fabric line that I adore and want...lol) and I made her this modern looking one, complete with a snap that looks like a button, shown next to the scrappy pincushion (from a pattern in Last Minute Patchwork Gifts.)
I had fun making these gifts to cheer Wendy (if you're curious to see what else I tucked into her parcel, go here to see).
