Spoilt!

A big big thank you to Carol and Sheila in Spain! Look what the postie brought me today - Birds of a Feather's 'A Very Fine Sampler' from Carol, and the last two Winter Snapperland charts I needed from Sheila. Here they are with a cute cat card from Sheila and this month's Rainbow Club fabric from Countrystitch (who have a 25% off sale for this week only by the way....)


I knew gifts were on their way because both ladies emailed me a week or so ago to ask for my address. I'm a firm believer in 'what goes around, comes around' (or Pay it Forward) and this just reinforced it - I'd just given away the last of my already stitched or spare charts! Talk about coincidence, fate, or whatever you like to call it. Thank you both. I really appreciate the charts and when I've worked through some of my too-large list of WIPs I'll definitely be starting them! Stitching people are so generous.

  2. You're so generous too that it's normal people wants to spoil you Nicki :o)

    I received your parcel today, I love everything and the needleroll is so gorgeous!!! Thank you so much, my friend.

    I wanted to email you but I'm having big troubles at home with my phone line (there is no tonality anymore) so I'm waiting for a technician, but of course I don't know when he will come (I hope before the end of the week)... So at home, I have no phone and no Internet :(

    Fortunately, I have an Internet access at work...

  6. Nicki, are you stitching the winter snapperland series separately or togehter in a row with the free border chart? If you want a copy of the free border chart let me know, I have one for that and the snapperville (the first one of 6)
