When the post arrived, I hastily opened the envelope to discover a whole host of gifts wrapped in gorgeous autumnal paper
and accompanied by this sweet handmade card
First out of its wrapping was this lovely woolly brooch which will look absolutely perfect on my brand new black coat:
Next came this giant pincushion which, as you can see from Tracy's note, will be perfect when I finally get my sewing machine set up in what has been designated as my office-cum-craftroom at our new houseNext, an autumnal cross-stitch tutorialAnd finally a notebook which will be very handy for writing down all those things I need to remember!
There was also a lovely book entitled 'The Autumn Garden' which I've forgotten to take a photo of, but which will be very useful for the garden at our new house which is much, much bigger than any other garden we've ever had to cope with!
Didn't I do well?!
