Snow & Ice anyone ;-)


Hello there :) here I am at last, to show you something fabulous that I have wanted to share for what seems like ages now ! What is the reason for my delay ?? Where have I been ?? I can hear you all ask in unison ;-) Would you believe me if I told the truth ? LOL... here goes...the power lead to my Laptop snapped!! Aha, it did, really !! It was one of those things that seemed perfectly fine one minute, then it needed a wiggle to get the wires right for a connection, then when the wiggle became sizzles and sparks I decided I had better not use it any more until I got a replacement !!

You can even get a little excited about my 5 weeks off-line being changed into 5 weeks of stitchy time ;-)  Not too excited , no Bayeaux Tapestry or anything, after all this is me, Mrs Notimeatall that we are talking about :-) However, more on my things next time as this time it is all about this :-)))


Isn't this totally exquisite :-)))


Look closer at the details :-)))


Take a look at the beautiful glass Heart shaped decoration :-)))


Not forgetting to look at the stunning silk lining.... :-)))


I cannot stop admiring this , I love it so so much..... here is another picture incase you are the same :-)))


I have so wanted to show you this, my beautiful and exquisite Christmas gift from my fairy stitching friend 'Colette' who really did stun me once again with her selfless kindness and of course her stitching talent. I am still kind of speechless and a bit , (well alot, if I am honest) in awe of receiving this ........ thank-you so very very much again Colette :-))) you truly are one of life's beautiful people. I wish I was better with words to be able to express how I feel but I render myself officially delighted although speechless on this occasion xx


Happy admiring along with me ........
Have a great week , keep warm or cool and keep stitching :))

Oh, wow. Wow, wow, wow. That is simply stunning. I can't believe you were able to wait 5 weeks before sharing this (although spitting sparks would sort of be a very very good reason!). Collette's stitching and finishing is unbelievable...!!
