The postman knocked twice and handed me a huge box and little what was inside. A lovely range of wrapped goodies from my Friends swap partner. Thank you Mandy everything is lovely.

But my favourite things are the pom pom chicken egg cosy, pretty shopping bag, dotty hanging chicken and little blue embroidered box. I really hope you like all the handmade items I'm sending you this week. And please forgive any wobbly stitches, because I've made you 2 new things that i haven't made before.
Another thank you to Beki for doing this lovely swap idea and well done on it being your first. Hugs honey.
Lastly look what i won, some yummy smelling handmade soaps. I never win anything so was over the moon when i won the giveaway on Charlie's blog Thank you they look and smell lovely. Go checkout her Etsy shop and treat yourself to a little slice of heaven.
Going to go now, feeling a little ruff and sickie. I think it's the close weather.
Hugs everyone x

Ohooo would you mind if I helped myself to your beautiful cupcake on your main page it looks so adorable and I am rather peckish ;)

Must say some of them are cheats! I got Fairy mugs Red Bracelet Ivory Hanging Chicken Egg warmer & Egg cup Notepad Doilies and shopping bag
So you can see Ivory hanging chicken is a bit of a cheat! but I know that Charlotte loved them which is all that matters
