We are having some lovely Autumn days at the moment, in the low to high 20′s, we have also had some good rain and so the ‘lawn’ has gone from burnt brown to mostly green again, everything looks a little brighter.
I received a gift on Friday from my lovely bloggy friend Cuckoo
Cuckoo is a very generous and thoughtful girl, I have got to know her a little from afar and I love how much she loves her family and friends and would do anything for them and I know they would do anything for her as well, I cannot wait to meet her, actually there are so many lovely UK ladies that I want to meet and have a cuppa with, if it includes a cream tea then I will surely be in heaven.
Four material and ribbon wrapped presents, what a lovely way to gift wrap.
Two packages of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino and Rowan Kidsilk Haze in greys and blues, so soft and warm, they will be knitted into Alice Caterpillar wrist warmers from the lovely Suzie
Some gorgeous heart and crystal ‘bunting’ and a Robin Redbreast mug.
There is a story behind these gifts, I have lusted after the mug for ages and couldn’t afford the $45 – $50 for a mug, I searched on ebay and a few other sites and couldn’t find a cheaper one so I decided that it was not meant to be. Deciding the yarn color combos was a big thing and lots of back and forth with Suzie. Long and short of the story is…….cuckoo bought the yarn for me, and not just one color combo BUT two, oh my lord I was so surprised AND the very mug that I had given up as ever being mine and the gorgeous heart bunting. I am unable to express just how grateful I am and how much I love everything, I just want to be able to give her the biggest warmest hug that is in me. It also makes me feel rather humble and teary.
I have to say the tea tastes so much nicer :)
A closer look at the yarn, so luscious, will be knitted as soon as I finish the two pairs of Edwin Cream wristwarmers (from Suzie)that I am knitting at the moment, one pair for me and one for mum.
Us girls could teach the leaders of the world a thing or two about giving, sharing, mateship and love…all unconditional.
Hope the snow is thawing and the sun is getting more warmth in it for my lovely friends in the UK.
Melissa thank you, I’m still here and reading your blog my friend, I don’t comment as much as I should/would like to tho’.
On that note I am off to do some more to the Edwin Creams
