While I’ve been gleefully plotting and planning Kay’s birthday surprise with a few of her friends for the last month, some people have done some plotting and planning of their own!

Junior Mints Dinky Dyes Socks

From Sisu

From Sisu I received some of my very favourite American chocolates ever!  Yes you see empty packets in this photo!!  A pair of socks to remind me what my very favourite American chocolates are – Sisu is very thoughtful as she knows how shockingly poor my memory can get 🙂 Finally there is the most gorgeous bookmark chart and floss for me to make up as a memory to Trubs.  You picked well Sisu – the cat in the model even has one ginger hind leg like Trubs did …

Thank you so much Sisu – it is a wonderful parcel full of thoughtful perfect gifts!



Vickery Collection Carries Threads Inkcircles Scissors Fob

From Rosanne

From Rosanne I received her copy of Mike Vickery’s Celtic Cross Stitch book.  I discussed stitching some of my secret Christmas stitching projects from this book and Rosanne offered to send me her copy.  Not only did she ignore all offers of payment, she also sent me the cutest little scissor fob – a beaded one that Abby hopefully wont focus attention on.  And if that wasn’t enough she also included four skeins of Carries silks, for the Ink Circles chart, Red Square.

Thank you so much, the inclusions were a real surprise, and your letters brought tears to my eyes.  You wouldn’t accept payment for the book, but I’ll figure out something!


Chatelaine Debbie

From Debbie

Debbie sent me the kit (minus fabric) for Chatelaine Midi Mystery IV!  Such a generous surprise! I’ve barely finished Midi Mystery I, but as Debbie says I now have no excuses not to finish the set!

Thank you Debbie, your kindness is as usual, overwhelming!  And thank you for the mystery!  Over a week of wondering who this as from!  This is karma for the fun I was plotting for Kay – wasn’t it ….



Thank you so much my friends – you never cease to amaze me!

Stitched card birthday floss club

Oh my!!!  I was sooo surprised when I opened the envelope and saw this gorgeous hand stitched card!  Anne it is beautiful!  Really pretty – and in my favourite colours – green and black!

Anne also included a few threads I need to kit up a few of designs too!

Gloriana 102 Fresh Snow – Will be used in M Designs’ Snowflake

ThreadworX  1133 Summer Shadows – Will be used in Enchanting Lair’s Galaxy Dragon

Dinky Dyes Silk 031 Choco Latte – Will be used in Dinky Dyes’ Kitty Love


Thank you so much Anne!  It is such a beautiful card and a thoughtful selection of floss – I can’t wait to start stitching with the Fresh Snow – Gloriana is one of my favourite threads!  I’m still gobsmacked at the hand stitched card.  Still trying to find the right place to put it ….
