(wonder if she is related to Jessica Alba hahaha) her blog is go have a look she has some lovely photo's of her work there... Now in this parcel was some fantastic stuff... ribbons, a wonderful piece of lime fabric with butterflies all over... green threads... some xmas ornaments to paint... and apple scented tissues that I just can't stop smelling... buttons and a postcard... OH and some Cadbury's caramel chocolate my absolute favourite chocolate YUMMO
But check these little beauties out... how impressive are these... and you should see the embroidery stitching....... so weeny and perfect... something for my to strive to.... So Sandra you can see that I am HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY...... thank you ever so much for being my Stitcher's Angel..
More Cooking
This morning I made a batch of ''Kumquat Marmalade" I just love this one and I only ever get enough off my small tree to make only a few jars... and by the time I give some to my kids and a cousin I savour what I have left.... I got a big bag of peaches yesterday from Hubby's cousin that I have been stewing this morning... which I will freeze so they can be used all through the year... my kitchen smells so sugary sweet.....
Luv T xxxx
