And, lookie here - he's only flippin hit the nail on the head !
|A parcel pour moi|
I carefully opened to see what was inside.....
|Its like a gift in a bed !|
|Exceptionally prettily wrapped.|
At this point even I could guess at the fact it was book shaped ! ;-)) So I knew that this was the gift I won over at http://didyoumakethat.wordpress.com/.
I like to savour the unwrapping of a mystery gift - its very satisfying to prolong the excitement (and let me tell you - a girl in rural Devon takes excitement where she can !)
|2 gifts in one !|
This is my excruciatingly slow unwrapping...... (by Now Mr P's attention was wandering and he had moved onto other excitements - namely Battlefield - pink wrapping is obviously a girl thing).
What a beautifully cool book !
|This pretty much sounds like the book was written FOR ME|
|Extremely apt !|
|Err yes ! I recognise these actions rather too well !|
How rock and roll is the pink tissue wrapping ?
Thank you sooo much Karen !! I totally LOVE the book, and it was extremely generous of you to let me win it !
I am sure anyone who looks at my blog has already met Karen, but if you have not then you must pop over and say hello. Why not get yourself a vimto and take a look at some of the fabulous creations that she has made. She really is a very talented lady.
Thanks again Karen ! Big loves.
So my friends, that was my evening so far. How was yours ? Hopefully as exciting as mine !
In other news I am off work Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday (oh yes I am excited !) and am thinking of making a silk Jasmine.
Um, do you reckon its safe for a newbie to try and stitch silk pretty much straight of the bat ? I have read many horror stories but am sort of thinking 'ahhh just go ahead and try' !
Any tips ?
Also, in case anyone needed reminding - its only nearly the flippin weekend !! What has everyone else got planned ?
Well, I shall bid a happy farewell, as I am off to check out what my new book says about getting men-folk to cook the tea !
