When the mailman knocked the door this morning I didn't get overly excited as I was expecting some things I had ordered online for Christmas gifts. I signed for the packages and took them through to the kitchen. I sorted out the mail and opened a couple of letters and then turned to the packages. The first was some books I had ordered for gifts - not that exciting but the second was from Sonda
in Oregon and inside was this beautiful fob which I had won on her blog giveaway. It's very pretty in lovely shades of pink and green. Thank you Sonda, I love it and maybe I now have a great excuse to buy some pink scissors!
The next package was from Anne
in France as I was lucky enough to win the giveaway on her blog too and, not only did Anne send me the chart I had won, she also enclosed two tiny pink envelopes with instructions not to open them until I had read her card. So, being the good girl I am, I read the card first and then opened the pink envelopes. Inside the first envelope was a gorgeous skein of pink thread and, inside the other, a packet of lovely buttons. Thank you Anne - so sweet of you.
And then I turned to a fairly ordinary package ...
... and inside was a letter telling me that I had won second prize in a competition that I had entered and enclosed an iPod Touch! Oh my ... I was so excited ... I jumped around for a bit and then I just had to tell someone so I rang my son - no reply! OK so I rang my daughter - no reply! So I rang my close friend Sue who was coming to see me for a finishing class today and I think she thought I had gone mad as I babbled on about my win! I often wonder how I would react if I won the lottery but knowing now how I reacted to winning this iPod, I think I would be uncontrollable!
Sue came down later with her stitched piece which I showed her how to finish as an ornament and she made a really beautiful job of it. I suppose I should have taken a picture to post but forgot. She is now going to stitch a piece for a tiny Christmas needleroll so once she is ready we will have another finishing class.
I have been stitching some tiny Christmas needlerolls too but as these are gifts I will not be able to post photos for a while as I know the recipients read my blog.
Thank you for visiting
