Goodies!!

 
Hello, I'm back!
Apologies for being quiet recently but my
sister and her family came to visit and she deserves my full attention.
I had to spoil her as I sadly don't see her often ☺
 
oOo
 
I have to put my hands up and admit I have been a little bit naughty!
 
A few weeks ago Sharon from Shebafudge very sweetly sent me a little surprise.
I have been looking for this mug since I saw it advertised in a cross stitch magazine.
Sadly I never managed to find one!!
Well Sharon thought of me!
I use it a lot now that summer seems to have departed!
 
Thank you Sharon, big hugs for you xx
 
 
oOo
 
The postman has been very kind too the past few days as I have received
a little RAK from Italy.
Elena from BusyHandsCraft... my craft blog is in the RAK blog I belong to
and randomly picked me to win this cute little chart!
 
It is Winter Fobs from Heart in Hand Needleart
And I can't wait to get started... eventually :D
 
There was a little pincushion handmade by Elena and some yummy teas too
 
Thank you sweetie, big hugs to you too xx
 
 
oOo
 
Will be back soon with a little finish.. or two!
 
Oooh, and we are approaching the 1st Sep, it will be time to show you about the
Tutti Frutti Swap that I have organised!!
 
Toodles,
Mii Stitch
