Gifts and New Purchases

Once again I've not been very good at blogging - sorry! 

I received the most wonderful gifts from Marlene of Poppy Patchwork blog - a rug and a heart.  I've been watching Marlene's progress on the rug and it looked lovely but to see it in person is totally different - as it is even nicer than the photos show.  I have a project in mind for the rug and Marlene had asked me about the colours that I wanted and now I cannot wait to get started on the project.   

The heart has also found a home and hangs from a shelving unit in our bedroom and looks really nice. 

Thank you so much Marlene.   If you haven't read Marlene's blog you will enjoy it.

When I was 'surfing the internet' looking for items for my new project to go with the new project, I find some lovely items for Lake View from Mitchy Moo Miniatures - a chair, whisky crates and picture frames.   These are beautiful and the chair and crates are in place but not the picture frames yet.  One of the crates has had a slice of agate put on top and made into a coffee table but I need another piece of agate as this one is not quite the right shape.  I'm very pleased with all of them and will definitely be buying more from Mitchy Moo.  Thank you.
