While I’ve been gleefully plotting and planning Kay’s birthday surprise with a few of her friends for the last month, some people have done some plotting and planning of their own!
From Sisu I received some of my very favourite American chocolates ever! Yes you see empty packets in this photo!! A pair of socks to remind me what my very favourite American chocolates are – Sisu is very thoughtful as she knows how shockingly poor my memory can get 🙂 Finally there is the most gorgeous bookmark chart and floss for me to make up as a memory to Trubs. You picked well Sisu – the cat in the model even has one ginger hind leg like Trubs did …
Thank you so much Sisu – it is a wonderful parcel full of thoughtful perfect gifts!
From Rosanne I received her copy of Mike Vickery’s Celtic Cross Stitch book. I discussed stitching some of my secret Christmas stitching projects from this book and Rosanne offered to send me her copy. Not only did she ignore all offers of payment, she also sent me the cutest little scissor fob – a beaded one that Abby hopefully wont focus attention on. And if that wasn’t enough she also included four skeins of Carries silks, for the Ink Circles chart, Red Square.
Thank you so much, the inclusions were a real surprise, and your letters brought tears to my eyes. You wouldn’t accept payment for the book, but I’ll figure out something!
Debbie sent me the kit (minus fabric) for Chatelaine Midi Mystery IV! Such a generous surprise! I’ve barely finished Midi Mystery I, but as Debbie says I now have no excuses not to finish the set!
Thank you Debbie, your kindness is as usual, overwhelming! And thank you for the mystery! Over a week of wondering who this as from! This is karma for the fun I was plotting for Kay – wasn’t it ….
Thank you so much my friends – you never cease to amaze me!
