A belated thank you to Milly whose fantastic November giveaway of an original drawing went to Carolina - on a subject of her choice! Milly also sent a gift box of some of her stunning art cards to all who entered her giveaway - me included. Thanks again Milly, they really are lovely!

A great big thank you (also belated, sorry Libby) to Libbyquilter of Paper Napkin Poetry - yours truly being the lucky recipient of her wonderful November giveaway - a parcel to 'bring smiles and comforts', yielding up many smooth, dark chocolate goodies, delicious premium double choc cocoa powder, assorted teas and squeezy huckleberry honey.
There was also a notebook with seahorses on the cover.

A truly lovely piece of handwoven cloth.

A scented candle ........

And a Libby original handmade fabric postcard!!

Love the stamp.

Love the colours.

Love the stitching.
But most of all, I love the thought. Thank you again Libby.
