My Yummy New Purchases and Spoilt Again

As well as all those gorgeous patterns and other bits and pieces we received in our goodie bags on Saturday at the Stitching Soiree with Lisa and Leanne, I did add a few other purchases from Karen's (Mrs Martins) lovely shop which she had there on the day -
Some yummy new fabrics - not a great photo, sorry - the colors are much deeper than this and the red one has old fashioned fob watches on it.
And of course a girl needs some new patterns - "Woodland Friends" on the left has a very cute wreath stitchery with lots of little woodland creatures added in.  And I "needed" a new xmas project.
And those that know me know I can't resist a snowman, so I had to have this cute little snowman sewing set. And Karen does such gorgeous kits, so had to have some for a few of the new projects we received in our goodie bag.
Lots of lovely raffle prizes and I was lucky enough to win one - a lovely stitchery design of Lisa's, a bag with lots of lovely DMC threads, cotton and needles.  Now I just need a couple of weeks off to work on all my lovely new projects.

While at the Soiree I received a lovely surprise - another birthday gift from a dear friend -
Shez spoilt me with the most beautiful kitchen set - a lovely handtowel and a beautifully stitched tea towel.
And a lovely Donna Hay cookbook to go it with it. So many yummy things to try out in there. Thankyou so much Shez for my most gorgeous gift.
And another dear friend, Karen from Mrs Martins sent me this lovely pattern for gorgeous handmade cards and envelopes. I havn't seen a pattern for these before - they are so cute.
Finally a lovely drop of rain here - it has missed us for weeks, so nice to be inside stitching and listening to the rain fall. Cheryl
