A Blogoversary Draw Win

I was absolutely delighted to discover that I'd won the draw for Sheila's recent Blogoversary Giveaway. The prizes were two of Sheila's handmade goodies and some House of Embroidery perle thread and they arrived safely today:

Aren't they gorgeous? The book is something special indeed. Here's a close up of the beads:

I'm afraid my pics just don't do it justice - the digicam just doesn't seem to like doing close up work and these were the best ones from all the ones I took.

The felt decorations are all hand sewn in place:

I'll be using the book for something special, though haven't quite decided what yet....... perhaps a small scrapbook of photos that hold special memories for me. :0)

The handbag mirror is decorated with hardanger. The colours are lovely and I'm quite envious of the stitching, as I haven't tackled that particular infill yet:

It will be good to have such a pretty handbag mirror to use when I'm out and about - very useful for those quick lippy repair jobs. :0)

I don't have any plans for the thread - yet! - it's just nice to fondle it for now. LOL

Thank you again Sheila for such gorgeous items - I love them and you have definitely made my week. Hope you had a very Happy Blogoversary. :0)
Thank you all for taking the time to stop by, it's alway very much appreciated.... as are the kind comments you leave. :0)
