I am a very lucky Lace! My lovely friend Melmel did a giveaway, I thought for a gorgeous Liberty wrist pin cushion and thimble holder. I was lucky enough to be drawn. Well, look what arrived...
It was sprinkled with lavender - you can see a couple of dots scattered...it's not because my carpet is in need of a hoover! But it smelt fabulous. But how lovely is that wrapping and tag!
The wrapping turned out to be two gorgeous napkins...
My eldest decided that Mrs Hen, who was tucked safely inside the napkins, should introduce you to the rest of the treasures. She took a series of photographs to show them off. So, first of all, Mrs Hen came across a Cath Kidston soap - after finding a yummy background oilcloth in the parcel that was just perfect for the photographs!
I've never had a Cath Kidston bathroom smellie before, and it's so cute. We loved that.
Mrs Hen went a little further and found a glass heart...
Delving deeper, two heart buttons.
We were so excited by all this.
The gorgeous Liberty thimble holder, complete with thimble:
It was all so beautifully wrapped. Just look at the notepaper on the right!
Mrs Hen took them all back to her nest, where the wrist pincushion was hiding...
Now, I entered this giveaway, partly because I love liberty fabrics, but also because I'm very norty with pins. I sit on the sofa, pop them on the arm of the sofa (sticking up, of course), and always swear to myself I'll remember to put them away. What happens? I forget! I blame it on my age. I seem to forget an awful lot. Anyway, youngest happily came along, and promptly sat on four of them the other day - well, I do tell them not to sit on the arms of the sofa, but I did think, oops, I need a wrist cushion. (He wasn't badly hurt - I think it was the shock!) And that was when Melmel's giveaway popped up. So thank you Melmel for this, and you have totally spoilt me, and it's very timely. I feel very lucky.
So does my youngest!
Now, progress on the cushion: it's looking fab. I'll post a pic soon, and let you know what comes next. I don't feel rushed on this, as White O'morn Cottage is the only fool among you who stepped in, and she's so much more advanced than I am. But it is doing very well!
