Some Pretties in the post and a Sewing Lesson
Don't you just love it when the posty brings you a parcel - especially when a good blogging chum has sent it!
Yesterday I got 2 parcels...what a treat. One from Mel and Sian
Mel was my freestyle swap partner, and boy did I get some lovely things, a handmade cushion, some bunting, a beautiful mug, a lovely magazine, all wrapped so pretty with a lovely card and tag...I was sooo pleased! If any of you are lucky enough to be paired with Mel for a future swap, you are very lucky!
Sian sent me a quilted bed for Miss Silkie Sue (We had a little mini swap arranged) made from the cutest vintage kitten fabric!
How spoilt was I...better that a birthday, thankyou so much ladies.
Yesterday my Mum was trying to give me a sewing lesson, (My Mum used to work for Hardy Amies in London..some years ago) and she is a bit good at sewing. Any way I have a very short attention span, and as you can see from the pic my mum was doing all the sewing, and I was a bit distracted on my Ibook......so hopefully I will be able to have another lesson from my mum before she goes home... cause I really want to learn to insert a zip properly.....
I just never have enough time!
Love Sam xx
