Sadly, the crochet morning has not occured!
My mum has been quite poorly...I mean some people do anything to get out of a crochet morning, don't they?
In all seriousness, my poor mum appears to have caught a nasty sickness bug...and so my crocheting guests have been let off the hook, so to speak.. but I'm sure we'll do it soon!
They won't get away with it that easily!
This means that my little gifts, which I bought for them, will be...ah ha... all mine!
No, not really I didn't mean that! ;-)
But aren't they lovely?
So beautifully wrapped too. I found them in a flower shop in Kingsbridge , at the weekend.
It's been a week of giving and receiving and it's not even Christmas yet!
I found this little selection of goodies in this Etsy shop :
Some of you probably read Emily's blog, which is full of festive loveliness:
Last week , I received a surprise gift from my friend, Jane... (home made chocs and a little cushion, all in a cute basket.) I've been wondering how to utilise the basket....
And then yesterday, out of the blue, came this little vintage box from Amanda.
It was so light that I almost didn't undo it. I thought she'd just sent me a cute vintage box.
And then my curiosity got the better of me...and I know Amanda all too well.. inside, wrapped so beautifully...
Three little, very fragile, vintage Christmas tree decorations..
...just like miniature Aladdin's lamps.
And so...I'm sorry if you brought your hooks with you but we will have to rearrange our little crochet date....and...
Get better soon, Mum!
