My Mum sent me the best parcel for my birthday (which is tomorrow). I was so excited when I opened it. I wish I'd taken pictures of the cute wrapping paper, but I was like a little kid ripping into it. No waiting for the actual birthday...
Here are my wonderful gifts:
First of all, the handmade presents. If I ever had doubts about the value of a handmade gift, these quashed them. There is nothing - nothing! - like knowing that someone made something just for you, that they put time and effort into knitting, sewing, quilting, thinking of you with each stitch.
A gorgeous sweater in beautiful, soft grey yarn. I love the pattern, especially the sleeves!
Plus, an adorable hedgehog. I need to think of a name for him.
And, Simple Modern Sewing. Love it! I have already picked out some projects to sew.
Thanks Mum xoxo
