Very fortunate

That’s me……I was very fortunate to get in the mail a couple of parcels with some wonderful special things in them.

Anna sent me these gorgeous gifts that she made…. she even made the paper that they were all wrapped in…how special! Thanks so much Anna, when I saw these on your blog (on this post) and admired them I never dreamed of you sending them to me. I love how you made the votive holder with the painted lace… are very clever you know! I have the lovely tag hanging up and I see it every time I am in the kitchen. Thank you very much.


Also I was made to feel special with this gift from Roseanne…she is affectionately known as Mrs Moo on the Craft Forum.

I love the little box (the one with the picture of the bear on it) and it was handmade by a neighbour of Roseanne’s

and the gorgeous little angel inside was made by this lovely neighbour too. How clever are some people? I love these …..Thanks so much Roseanne.

Just divinely gorgeous!

I loved making this one as it has pieced blocks as well as applique and stitchery bits. Also are the coasters to match.

I got myself two copies of this magazine as I bought one and was sent one by Express Publication.

So who wants a copy?


If you have been wanting to get the Charm Squares and have gone into the PayPal to buy some and then found that it wants $8.00 for postage then please don’t freak out as its not meant to be that….I have put the postage on the total amount and if it comes up with $8.00 as well then I will refund that to you. I think I have fixed it but not too sure. I would appreciate it if someone could go into it as if you are buying a pack and then just cancel it so you can let me know if its added on or not. Of course it wont let me do it because I am the account holder. Thanks heaps.

I still have some left if you want to buy them.

Well that’s about it from me…..I hope you all are having a great week.

Hugs to all…….Vicki

Congratulations on your creation in Country Threads! I would love a copy.
I tried ordering and canceling the charm pack and it only added $.17 to the order, but I am in the U.S.
