Thank you blogging friends

John has been unwell, necessitating a trip to hospital so I haven't been doing any sewing over the last couple of days.  He is fine and recovering well from a small operation but he is a very naughty patient which can be quite frustrating as he is recovering at home.
So when three lovely parcels arrived yesterday I was extra thrilled.
First one from my lovely friend Shez at Enjoying Life. A Pay-It-Forward present.  Shez made me the most beautiful grey bag and scarf.  I wear a lot of black, grey and white so it fits my wardrobe beautifully.  I am really thrilled with it.  Thank you so much Shez.

Next two absolutely beautiful hexie flowers from Marta in Florida.  They are gorgeous and I will add them to my garden today.  They arrived as part of the Inchy Hexie Flower swap so kindly organised by dear Jane.

Last but not least my pin cushion base, a Sew-A-Long orgainised by fantastic Fiona at BubzRugz, arrived home.  I cannot thank my wonderful swap partners enough.  Dianne, Roslyn and Laura ,you added the most wonderful stitching and embellishments to my pin cushion. This is something I will always treasure. A huge thank you to all.

Dianne also included the most beautiful coaster and cards in my parcel.  Thank you so much.

I will be nursing my naughty invalid for the next couple of days which means I get to stay home and stitch which will be wonderful.  Here's a sneak peak of a present I am making for the Once a Season swap.  I'll be popping it in the post on Monday.

I will also be posting this little hexie flower to Jane at Want It, Need It, Quilt to help her garden grow.

Many thanks to everyone who left me comforting words on the passing of Marieke. 
Have a great weekend.

  8. HI Melody. It looks like these parcels turned up at the right time to provide a distraction for you. These guys don't like doing what they are supposed to when it comes to health matters. I have found concrete boots and a straight jacket can help! Good luck.

  9. I am sorry to hear John has been unwell and I hope he starts to follow the 'good patient guide' for you real soon. You did recieve some lovely mail there....I love Shez's grey number gorgeous. I have so enjoyed seeing all of the pin cushions evolve. They are just lovely.
    Get well soon John.

  10. I hope John recovers quickly from his surgery and is a good patient for you . Wonderful gifts you have received , love the bag and scraf and your pincushion base is just beautiful.How cute is that flower for Jane :-)
