Spoilt rotten … piccies galore

I have so much to show and tell from the last week or so, I just don’t know where to start! I do want to say, though, a huge thanks to everyone for their friendship and support, especially during recent times – you’ve all helped me to stay positive and keep my head up above the water line, and I’m extremely grateful πŸ˜€ Thanks also to all the ladies who have spoilt me rotten lately … and here are the spoils … (to try and placate Blogger I decided to use the ‘small’ photo settings – just click on each one for the bigger piccie)

Dearest Carol, who sent me the beads for AoL I needed … as well as a most exquisite fob with a beautiful wee blue bird on it – on Christmas Day they will be sitting on my Alyssa Gingher’s in prime position πŸ™‚ I’m also considering using the darker DMC variegated thread for a Quaker RR I’m about to start with some wonderful blogging pals πŸ˜€ I love everything, thank you Carol πŸ˜€

Thanks also to Christine, who sent me the most gorgeous Santa ornament – and look, he’s in blue!!! πŸ˜€ I just love him to death, and he went straight onto the tree as soon as he arrived πŸ™‚ Thank you so much for your caring thought, it’s awesome and he’ll be treasured every year when he graces my tree! πŸ˜€

Thanks also to Nicole (aka Elanor) for this wonderful parcel of goodies … how awesome is that fabric??? I think I’m going to try and make a quilted wall hanging out of the duckie squares … I just love it! And another exquisite ornie that’s now gracing my tree – a beautiful quaker in my favourite colours that will be hanging from my computer desk year-round until next Christmas. But if that wasn’t enough, which it was, there was also some scrummy threads and beads, and {{drool}} choccies (although please note the numbers in that bag have seriously dwindled since taking the piccie haha). Thanks again Nicole!

And last, but certainly not least, I was gobsmacked by a parcel from KarenV yesterday – I have to admit I knew this one was coming (although it still surprised me when it did), and I knew there was something off my wishlist in it … but I was floored when I opened the envelope and found a HUGE selection off my wishlist. LHN’s Winter Wonderland was pretty much at the top of my wishlist when I saw it recently, and I may just have to start that one as my 1st project for 2007 – and the Beehive NR has been on my wishlist for quite some time now. And the threads are almost all for a specific ornie both Mum and I wanted to stitch, so Mum and I will have to do a SAL when she arrives in February. Once again, I’m gobsmacked, and I really love everything thanks Karen! {{hugs}}

Seeing as there are so many goodies to share, I thought I’d have a separate post for them – tomorrow I’ll do the stitching updates (not that there’s much to show haha). The other gifties I received were wrapped up, so they’re sitting under the tree until Christmas Day … although the temptation is getting harder and harder to resist LOL.

Thanks again to everyone for their gifts – I feel a bit bad that I couldn’t reciprocate this year, but I am very grateful for your friendship and support and I just adore everything! {{hugs}}.
