It was my birthday on Thursday and I received lots of crafty gifts this year so I thought I'd show you what I got. As I'm starting a new sewing hobby, there were lots of things on my wishlist for everyone to choose from.
Mick bought me the first cross stitch design in the Jack Frost's Tree Farm series by Little House Needleworks. There are seven designs in all which can be stitched as one piece or separately. He also bought me a patchwork ruler and a breadboard needle keep from Chapel View Crafts, I've already got one needlekeep but need more now that I have more than one stitchy project on the go.
I received a double sided self-healing cutting mat and a rotary cutter from Daniel. The cutting mat is A2 size, a nice size for my needs.
I treated myself to the Luna Lapin book by Sarah Peel last year, so Eleanor bought me the kit to go with it so that I can make Luna Lapin. The kit includes everything you need to make the cute little rabbit.
I received some fabulous crafty gifts from my bloggy and Instagram friends too. Maggie from Blackcountry Wench sent a gorgeous drawstring project bag and two mini skeins. I can always do with extra project bags as I seem to have more and more things on the go, and the yarn will look lovely added to my scrappy blanket.
Di, a friend on Instagram who lives in Australia, sent a cross stitch project bag, so handy as it has a see through front so you can see what's inside, a skein of gorgeous Dingo Dyeworks yarn, some variegated embroidery floss, thread storage cards, a thread keep and some stickers which will be added to my journal. Such a generous gift which will all be put to very good use.
I received lots of non-crafty gifts too and I also received lots of wonderful cards.
I'm sure you'll agree I was thoroughly spoilt.
Mick took last week off work, we were hoping to get off for a few days out but unfortunately, I was a bit under the weather so we didn't end up going very far and stayed close to home. Although Mick's been at home all the time since before lockdown in March, it was nice him being here without having to work.
Don't forget, if you haven't already entered my giveaway, you've got until midday on Wednesday the 16th of September 2020 to do so, just leave a comment on my Tenth Blog Anniversary Giveaway post. I also just want to mention that some comments which have been left on that post have not shown up. I've gone back through my emails and added the comments I'm able to, but unfortunately, I don't get an email for every comment which is left and so I'm unable to track down two or three missing comments. Please check back on that post and make sure that your comment is there, if not, please leave another comment in order to be entered in the giveaway. I'm sorry to have to ask you to do this but I can't see any other way round it as I don't know whose comments are missing.
