We're all bunkered down here with colds that seem to involve copious amounts of the green stuff (sorry if you're eating), as well as a very unattractive hacking cough.
So for some reason while I was in the kitchen whipping up a batch of healing chicken soup (lest I end up with risotto again), I also thought I'd make some scones. As you do.
Surprisingly they worked and so in an attempt to get out of the house, if only for two minutes we bundled some up to do a scone drop for our neighbour.
And guess what I found on my own front door on my way out?
A pin cushion!
Yay! Courtesy of the lovely Fran from Lovely Little Sweetpeas. Fran is the creator of the stupendous On-The-Go-Art Satchel which I am currently making for a special someone. But clearly she is also a very talented pin cushion maker too! Look at that ribbon goodness around the edge! And of course the fabric is gorgeous.
Knowing my favourite colour is purple Fran also included these beautiful little crochet flowers.
And one more thing. I can't believe Fran parted with this but oh I'm so glad she did
A critter card from Tania! Love it.
Fran, you've made my otherwise dreary day that much brighter. Thank you!
And thank you Kate for organising such a great swap.
