Thanksgiving is a special date for me and my wonderful husband. I met him when he was showing an American friend around the UK. Somehow I ended up offering to cook them Thanksgiving dinner. Seriously, you have no idea how hard it was to find a turkey in Norfolk, home of the turkey, in November. In the end I had to buy a frozen one, defrost it in the microwave and tell my children not to eat it in case I gave them food poisoning. Fortunately no one got poisoned and one of my guests asked me out on a date. Luckily for me it was my husband and not his American friend. I didn't really like him at all!
It took a bit more work than that for me to agree to a date, but in the end I gave in (it was before stalker laws came in you understand) and we have now been married for 15/16 years.
I have had an interesting week...lots of crafting which makes a nice change.
But first I had lovely post days. The first amazing post came from Deena.
Isn't it great? There was also a pack of wax crayons, but I'm in the process of using them for a special project I can't share just yet...one that is a lot of fun.
There are logs of sweets, a craft magazine and colouring book, Tinkerbell fabric, ribbons, owl notebok, and lots of sweets. It was a lovely surprise Deena. Thank you so much.
My Christmas exchange arrived from Angela as well.
This light is terrible here to day but the ornament is gorgeous and I LOVE SNOWMEN!
So perfect. Hubby drooled when he saw the Reese candy. It's not something we really have over in the UK or Ireland, but hubby lived in the USA for a couple of years and his eyes lit up when he saw these...I had to share really didn't I?
It's ok though. I ate all the jelly snakes Deena sent me before he could see them ;-) !
Alls fair in Candy love and war!
Thank you Deena and Thank you Angela xxx
Now for three new designs which have all been blinged up and are ready for their forever homes.
|Fergus tries to decorate the christmas Tree and gets into a bit of a tangle|
Darn dull light, it is so hard to see what they look like in reality...let's try the un-blinged versions.
These were stitched on Belfast Linen, 32 count, Capuccino. It's been a while since Fergus and Holmsey came out to play..I just wish you could see what they look like for real because they are very cute and the colours are so much better!
Righty oh...what does that leave me to say. Oh yes, please check the last post and see if you have won a prize. I can't really draw more numbers unless the winners come forwards.
Black Friday: hubby mentioned this and told me what it is all about so I am going to have a Black Friday sale over on my Etsy Store, a nice way to end the week I think. Feel free to pop over and take a look. It will be Black Friday GMT time xx
Have a great long weekend to the guys in America, and have a great normal weekend the rest of the world xxxxx
