Lucky Lizzie

 My boss at work is back from her holiday to London and Paris so my routine is back to normal again, I was very excited to receive these gifts from Lillian. She bought me back some Cath Kidston goodies. A beautiful carry bag and a cover for my ipod or phone. I love them, thankyou Lillian.
 I love the pattern in this case, wish it came in fabric to.
 Lillian also gave me this pretty lace motif, I forget where she said she got it from. I think France. Its so pretty and delicate.
 Also during the week my dear friend Kim gave me this beautiful christmas ornament, Kim works with me but she is leaving which is such a shame. Thankyou Kimmy. I will miss you.
 My penfriend Jan and I did a little fabric swap and this is what Jan sent me, some pretty fabrics and a hand towel.
 Also this cute cheater table runner fabric. I can't wait to make this up.
 My eldest son Daniel made me this fantastic cupboard in wood work at school, He did such a good job.
 I have it in my sewing room and when the weather gets warmer I'm going to paint it white. Its so special having things your children make for you,
Yesterday I made my first lemon meringue pie, it turned out great and tastes delicious.

Today I'm having a day in my sewing room, I have a few projects I'm working on but I can't share just yet as they are for christmas swaps. I am going to finish my newest tilda doll which I can't wait to share with you, she is gorgeous.

Have a great day.
