I got a lovely surprise this morning when the postman knocked on the door sending me a package from Pam, I got a gorgeous bracelet made of leather and sterling silver with the lovely glowing bead called "faith"... I. love it, I put this on straight away and got Jim to take some pictures. Also in the package is a gorgeous wall hanging made by Pam and quilted by Liz, so neat and tidy, the standard of the binding put together I wish I could do binding as good as that... I call this my little Christmas Chickadee I love it, Pam also put in the leather stick on thimbles which are great as I do have a lot of hand quilting to get on with in the next couple of days and weeks. So Pam thanks once again....the package has been a wonderful surprise and really cheered me up on this dark cold day. The colours of the material on the wall hanging is great.... and wow see that blue on the bracelet. see how it glows...x
Tomorrow we are hoping to go as see a very special dog called Diva who is just like Alice, she is currently with the East Midlands Dog Rescue, we will going to the kennels to take out pack to see if they get on with Diva, it will be nice to see the place and other dogs to give me some ideas on little lap quilts to make for them.
My New York Beauties are slowing growing, Ive to hunt round for five metres of fabric in the attic or possible buy some from somewhere but I have not yet found anything that has pulled my heartstrings to say yes,,,, that's the one to go with the black and multicoloured spiky bits.
