A Huge Thank You To A Thoughtful Friend

Hello to you.
Hope you're all well and enjoying the beginning of the week?
My week began with a very happy moment - a parcel all the way from Australia.
After some squeezing! I careful opened the parcel to find not only the beautiful cardigan I had won in Joy's give-away but also two individually wrapped presents - one addressed to me and another (which really touched my heart) to my daughter.
Inside my parcel I received a beautiful kitty and doily - impossibly neatly crocheted!
I loved the kitty way back when Joy inspired me to make my own kitty and I must say there is no comparison - hers is amazing!
Inside my daughter's parcel was a lovely dolly for her to look after, all the way from Australia. She was so excited to open this lovely up and she has sat her on her bed - pride of place!
My prize from the give away "with love in every stitch." Outstanding work!
My friend's baby daughter is going to look so cute in it!
I really have come to think of Joy as a friend. She is a truly special person and her thoughtfulness is really inspiring and overwhelming.
So thank you Joy.


  1. Such a lovely giveaway from Joy, and so nice of her to include the dolly for your daughter, and such a lovely thank you from you! I am sure that your friend will love the cardigan. How nice of you to keep the passing on by giving it as a gift. xx

It was an absolute pleasure to send you and lovely daughter the little makes and I'm really happy that you're happy, and I do hope the cardi suits your friend's little girl. The snail post wasn't so slow after all - good old Royal Mail service!
