Lucky Me


We've had a lovely family day today with my Mum in good form and my brother and his wife calling in to see her, bringing film of her new great grandchild and his older brother, so there has been lots of oohing and aaahing and lots of laughter. 

As a footnote to yesterday I should have shown you these beautiful fabrics I won in a giveaway recently.  The giveaway was hosted by Alex who blogs as Under A Topaz Sky. I have been following Alex's blog for a few months and she does some beautiful embroidered work. She is interested in natural dyeing, rusting fabrics, felting and generally playing and with her love of beachcombing we are kindred spirits.  You can read more about some of the fabric I received here.   

Thank you Alex, I shall enjoy using these fabrics and making the most of their beautiful marks.

I love those goodies - they are gorgeous and I'm sure you will do something beautiful with them.
Glad your Mum is well and enjoyed the family gathering. It's lovely to see the members of all the generations together.
