Valentins Exchange



WOW - I was speechless when this arrived through my letterbox from Cathy, not only did I receive my first ever piece of hardanger from Cathy she sent me 2 pieces and they are so delicate and pretty, I also received my first ever pair of gingher scissors too, it was a wonderful exchange parcel to receive and I am so delighted with it, Cathy's hardanger is a real treat I am in awe of hardanger creators and Cathy yours is beautiful and I love the colours that you picked for me. - thankyou so much.

Now I promised you a picture too of the wonderful gift I received from Paula, and I really apologise for being late in showing you any pictures, but this is what I wanted to show you. I felt so amazingly spoiled by Paula when this wonderful package arrived and I love every single one of them and will use them all. I just so love Paulas MoP designs and needle holders they are so lovely. When I first started blogging, Paula, Romy and myself did an ornament SAL together for a few months, and we are hoping that maybe again the 3 of us will pick back up again where we left off.



Thankyou to you all for good wishes about my health - no its not too great lately at all, but this time both Mark and I have gone under together and we have gastric flu, there's been talk of samples and tests and hospitals which is a sure way to get us both back on our feet ASAP lol!!, THough joking aside its been pretty rough few days and I am feeling slighlty better than I was, hence I'm actually up and sitting at the computer typing, and maybe just maybe I might get a few stitches done later today - I have not picked up my stitching now in over a week, I stitching something for mum for her birthday last Friday and so still haven't got it finished, I will endeavour to get it done and then I can start on my tea exchange piece and Katrinas PIF, which I am now so embarrasingly late with. I'm feeling a little weary now and my head is thumping so I'll go off and go have a lie down. Til tomorrow perhaps

I hope you're feeling better soon, flu is the worst. I'm sure the beautiful hardanger made you feel a little better. What a wonderful surprise it must have been to receive it.

Sending you and Mark both wishes for improved health.

Su hope you and your DH are feeling much better! It's awful to be sick like that. Don't give the PIF a second thought. The most important thing is you take care of yourself and get well.

Cathy's hardanger is gorgeous. Love both the gifts.

Su,
Your gifts from Cathy are so beautiful. Having received one of Cathy's gorgeous hardanger gifts, I know first hand how lovely they are. They are both so delicate. I love the colour and the complimenting thread too.

What a fantastic bag of goodies from Paula and how really thoughtful and generous a gift :>) What a wonderful feeling to stitch using some beautiful accessories. I'm sure you will treasure them always :>)

I was so glad to hear you were beginning to feel a little better when we chatted on the phone today. Just take it easy and take it a day at a time :>)
Hugs, Angela
