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.
