I have also been knitting a little cardigan for a great nephew's 1st birthday in November. I am loving this pattern.
I can't believe its been that long, it really feels like just the other day.
And when I arrived home from work there was the most wonderful surprise from the Postie for me from my gorgeous friend Gwendolyne in the USA. She is such a kind soul and has a huge giving heart.
Anyway this is what was waiting for me in the most adorable post bag (I wish we had lovely decorative Post Bags in NZ)
Isn't this just the scrummiest? It is from Jera Brandvig from Quilting in the Rain blog, it's her new fabric range "La Conner". So beautiful and the scissors , oh be still my beating heart, aren't they so cute. When I discovered Jera's blog it was so funny as I sat at home watching her "Quilt-as-you-go" video (which by the way is so worth watching) and then the next morning I had an email from Gwen asking if I had seen this new blog she had found, and yep I need say no more. So over the emails we ohhhhed and ahhhhhhed about her beautiful fabrics and how much we both really took to this range.
Then low and behold my dear friend sent me this fabulous gift and yes she has the same for herself.
My hands are itching to get working with this beauty.
