Gawjus Gifties from dear friends!!

Can you believe it’s the last day of 2009!!!??? Oh my goodness that crept up on me LOL. So, before the year has disappeared entirely please indulge me a little while I ‘show off’ a few more lovely pressies from some very spesh people!!

I can’t believe how lucky I am!!! So many wonderful thoughtful pressies. I’m so grateful to each and every one of my dear, dear friends :o)!! The beautiful bag on the right is a Christmas swap pressie from Dawn, we were swap partners last year and decided to do it again ... what fun!!

I was quite spoilt this Christmas and I just HAVE to show you this pressie … it was from my brother and SIL ……December 09 299 Now they couldn’t have possible known it but I was admiring these gorgeous measuring cups here while blog hopping just before Chrissy and thinking to myself that I just might buy a set after the festivities were all done with. So you can imagine my surprise when I opened the wrapping to find the exact same set!!! What an amazing coincidence, and aren’t they SO CUTE??!!!

Another nice surprise was in my mailbox. My Patchwork and Stitching magazine arrived last week and look what’s on page 40!!!! How exciting!!!!!December 09 301This is a wallhanging pattern of mine, and I just LOVE how they’ve photographed it, doesn’t it look pretty :o)!!??!

Well before I go I’d like to wish you all a very happy new year and I hope that 2010 is a fabulous and stupendous year for all of you!!! I’ll probably sleep through the fireworks he he, I’ll celebrate tomorrow after a good night’s sleep LOL.


PS ….. Thanks so much to all the lovely bloggers who bought my patterns … the “Sale” finishes tonight so I’ll be removing them from the sidebars later this evening, so if you still want one at that special price be quick before they disappear :o)!!

I spied the Bear fabric in your collage. I had to click on it and highlight it. I can't tell what was made out of it but I have a hard time finding bear prints.
I would like to know more about the magazine. You didn't mention the name.
