Over the weekend I commented on Marg's Blog at Sunshine Paradise when she was having a giveaway....and guess what....I won this cute little book called 'Tis The Season - Christmas Stitchings" by Natalie Bird.
There are some nice easy designs, with I already have an idea for using. I really like the angel design which I know will come in handy and get used a lot in times to come.
Also in the package was a skein of silk thread in would you believe it one of my favourite colours and one that I tend to use a lot. It is a Kaalund Yarn, and the colour is Fine Mulberry.
Aren't I lucky. I was just thrilled to receive these, thank you so much Marg for your kindness.
Something I do want to mention is the packet that the silk came in. You will notice the name is the Cooroy Drapery. Cooroy is a small town just north of the Sunshine coast, and one I would do an easy detour to when travelling through that area on my way to where I lived at Rainbow Beach. It was a nice little town, and a very convenient coffee and rest stop, and the Cooroy Drapery was always a magnet looking for threads and fabrice. I have been in that shop many times. This has brought back memories to me.
