Gifts Part the Second

The managment would like to state her and now that the delay in showing any fabulous item gifted to them om the last two months in NO way reflects upon the validity and specialness of said gift. Each gift is cherished knowing that a loved one has taken time to chose something especially for me.

Missus Stashbasket sent me a parcel filled with delicious delights. As well as having staged a raid on a beautiful fabric shop somewhere (said fabric now rests with Katy) there was also a notebook staring my assistant and this skein of Posh yarn - oo lala! I am going to brave up and try a lace pattern with this. I think.

Having seen the 'Just Jugs' shelf in real life Mrs Moog knew just how perfect this lil' Cath Kidston number would be.
Two school mamas set the challenge with this book - there are real seams and meeting corners. I have to steel myself just to imagine actually making any of these clever projects.
And just look what arrived all the way from New Jersey! An artwork created especially for me by the incredibly talented Lauren B over at 'All the Good Blog Names Were Taken' . The things this woman can do with paper are a.m.a.z.i.n.g. Not to mention the Jolly Ranchers hiding among all the lace inside the box!
Am loving this whole birthday thing!
