All around the world

I've received a lovely parcel through the post from Claire at Sweet Birdy Love. She's been on holiday to New York City, and as well as seeing the sights,  she also did some crafting whilst she was there, and made some momentos of her holiday for two readers.  
I was lucky enough to have my name chosen out of the hat and this is what I received

How cute is this squirrel on the needlecase?
 and there's an acorn on the back

Whilst in NYC Claire went to the biggest trimmings shop I have ever seen,  and she sent me this gorgeous embroidered ribbon

There's also a handmade postcard (with real stitching round the edge, which I love) and two crocheted hearts.

Claire did some yarn bombing in NYC so I think I'll do some myself with these hearts.  It's good to think there'll be some of her handiwork all over the world  (Claire's from Australia)!

I'm sorry if I haven't commented on anyone's blog lately but I'm way behind with my blog reading and am trying to catch up at the moment.


  1. What a great little parcel! Lucky you! Ada :)

  2. Wow! Getting crafty in NYC, maybe in Central Park inspired by squirrels and the amazing Autumn foliage!
    Congrats in your win Georgia!

  3. Claire's blog site is on my favourites list too. The little needle case is gorgeous.
    Didn't she have a brilliant time in New York!

  4. I love Claire's work and attention to detail. You had some lovely things in your parcel from downunder.

  5. What a sweet parcel with all those goodies in. I like the squirrel and the acron on the back is a nice touch. Wonder what you are going to do with that ribbon!
