I was the birthday gal yesterday . . . which meant I got to lounge around and not do much, except for opening some lovely presents – yay.
Without further ado . . . here’s the haul.
A bunch of roses from the husband, which are actually RED but seem to want to be shocking pink in all the photos I took.
A feather bookmark cross stitch kit with a lovely hand-stitched card from Yvonne. Kit contains threads, plastic canvas & chart to stitch the stripey feather on the right.
from SIL, a metal storage tin, plus a loofah and two bottles of shower gel.
From Avis, a lovely selection of Stylecraft Special DK to add to my stash. There’s: Copper, Saffron, Lavender, Parchment, Emperor, Petrol & Cypress.
And . . . since I always treat myself on my birthday too lol . . .
“Lucie””, a Sylvia Natterer doll, made by Petitcollin, bought second-hand on ebay. She arrived in lovely condition but sadly, isn’t wearing her original hat. And, because I got Lucie for such a good price, I couldn’t resist . . .
“Pierre”, also by Sylvia Natterer, & made by Petitcollin. Both are the “Finouche” size, meaning they measure 48cm, the same as my other Sylvia Natterer doll . . . so lots of clothes making sessions in store.
