Belated birthday presents
Despite the wrapping - this was a birthday present. (yes, I do feel the need to justify why I opened it!) One of my friends gave me the most lovely set of pressies (and far too generous too - she reads the blog :)
Felt creations that I fondled fondly in a craft shop near her home. I'd say I'd fondled most of these and then reluctantly put them back when I realised my recent crafty spends. So this was a particularly pleasant delight when I opened the parcel.
Really looking forward to getting started on these - but I've promised myself that I have to finish another project first - didn't stop me taking them out and giving it a very close inspection!
And finally two critters of the butterfly persuasion. I'm doubly blessed to have such a good friend from home in New Zealand and one who 'gets' crafty stuff too!
