a couple of thank you's

A couple of weeks ago I received two e-mails to say that I was being given the Liebster Blog Award.
It is a charming thing for someone to think of you in this way, but as I had already received the award, I asked if I could just link back to my original post.

So, a belated thank you to the lovely Natalie at Northshore Days who is a very busy crafter and mother of two and who lives in New Zealand and also Kaitlin at the Not So Simple Housewife who's blog I hadn't actually visited before she kindly gave me the award.
The link back is here and here. (I did it across two posts because I was so rubbish at blogging back then).


I also want to say a little thank you to my oldest friend Pandy. She sent me a little valentine present (we have been friends for over 40 years) and of course I opened it straight away (much to her disgust).

It's so cute - she bought it for herself for her own craft room but then realised that she doesn't really do string, but Fee does. Also she's not really into the shabby distressed look - or shabby shit ! as she calls it - hahaha !!! (why she bought it in the first place, I really don't know, although she does collect hearts). She did the cross stitch, even in my colours, not the pink that came with it and I have found the perfect place for it in my kitchen.

The chocolate heart was eaten about two seconds after I took the photo - lol !!!

Thanks Pandy xxx

    Next time tell her to include more chocolates so they last more than 10 seconds.
