This year, my blog buddy, Kim from Wisdom With Needle & Thread, is celebrating a big birthday. She'll be 60 in July and earlier this year, she decided to celebrate this milestone birthday with her friends in the blog world by sending out 60 RAKs (Random Acts of Kindness) and I'm lucky enough to have received one of these special gifts.
The thing with RAKs is that you never know when you're going to receive one, so it's a lovely surprise when the parcel drops through the letterbox, and what a lovely parcel it was.
Now, Kim is a fabulous stitcher, if you don't know her blog I'd urge you to pop over and have a look at the beautiful things she makes. I thought the parcel might contain something stitchy but there was so much more enclosed.
How cute is this little card? So charming.
There was some beautiful fabric. I'm hoping that this is the year I'll finally have a go at using Eleanor's sewing machine. I watched the first episode of the new series of The Great British Sewing Bee last night, that programme always gives me the urge to have a go. There was also some embroidery thread in lovely colours.
The pretty scissor fob is the perfect addition for my scissors, I'm always putting them down and forgetting where they are. There's a beautiful little angel charm on the end.
The piece de resistance, a beautiful thread keep. Just delightful, and very handy to keep all the threads from getting tangled whilst I'm stitching.
Kim's stitching is perfect, absolutely stunning.
Thank you so much, Kim, I love everything you've sent and thank you for including me in your birthday celebrations. Wishing you a very happy birthday.
