arrivals across the pond

needle kitGuess what arrived in the mail one hot & soggy day this week?

Prezzies ! ! ! From me Bestie sewing mate, Ali over in Yorkshire ! ! ! (Another much longer post to follow.  Am still a bit gob smacked.)

Click the pic here to go to Ali/Thimberlina’s write-up of the making of this cute and creatively decorated piece of art.

Honestly, I’m not entirely sure whether to use it or frame it.

The insides are in the slide show below.

Do please click a photo to go into the show viewing, as there are multiple texts and not all are visible if you hover. You can also make comments there on individual piccies.  Then click Escape to come back here.

I’ve already checked out the web site of the woman who ran the class, Raggedy Annie. She has kits, Lovelies! For all us folk not living close enough for classes. Can you look & not get all kinds of ideas? I surely couldn’t!

PS/ For those fortunate enough to live in the U.K., and near to Halifax in Yorkshire, get thee to Fabbadashery for even more classes from Raggedy Annie and other creative people. The owner, Chrissy, is a delight! You won’t come away empty-handed from her shop. 😉

    What a cute present – I’ll head over to Ali’s blog to take a look as I’ve been offline for a couple of weeks and have missed quite a lot methinks.

    Glad it arrived safely! You must use it! Don’t frame it! I have a couple of things Sewchet has made me and they make me smile every time I need them. This’ll make you smile too xx
