On my desk this morning


Normally I do Kirsty‘s meme over at Shabby Chicken, but look what’s on my desk today! Extreme cuteness and lots of yay!

I saw a pendant on Mike’s blog the other day, and knew it had to be mine.  I don’t know who made it, but I hotfooted it (or clicked rather) over to Mike’s online store and bought one.  Oh, and another Sublime designer pattern – look at that kitty and poodle!

So when it arrived, with a nice extra pressie no less, I was a bit loathe to unwrap it, because of how gorgeous it looks!  But as I was being selfish and buying me a pressie I unwrapped it. (If you think you’ve noticed a theme here lately, you’d be right – I think I’m bolstering myself against the coming Winter blues by amassing lots of wool, books, embroidery patterns and handmade loveliness to inspire me!)  Thanks Pip, super cuteness and customer service= happy camper.

    Miss Curlypops, when are you at Brown Owls next, I best catch up with you for real, as you’re one of my most avid readers I think!
    thanks for all your comments :)

    Hey no probs, I think we may have sort of met at the first meet. I was sitting opposite Corrie from Retromummy and Ronnie.

    Hehe….I got a little package exactly the same as that one in the mail today too. Mine is the swappie girl with the kitten. I was going to give it away but it’s around my neck right now – so I guess it’s mine.

    That looks so lovely. Good on you for looking after yourself in readiness for the gloom of winter. I think books and textiles, and crafty goodness are the best medicine. Perhaps we should organise a ‘beat the blues’ winter craft swap.

    And that CurlyPops – isn’t she great. She visits me all the time too.

    A ‘Beat the Blues’ winter craft swap sounds fun! hmmm, we might have to work on that!
