Pretty in Pink

Thank you all so much for the truly wonderful comments you left on my latest post. It really made me feel proud of myself :) I cannot wait to get started on catching up with all of your blogs. I plan on making a start tonight. I did the morning shift today so I've got all evening to relax and read blogs. Ah, bliss.

I thought I'd show you what I sent to Teresa just before I headed off to France. I know Teresa's favourite colour is pink, so that was my starting point for this parcel.
I sent two lengths of ribbon, a DMC thread, two sachets of tea, a card and a small kit. I'm pleased to report that Teresa liked the parcel and could find use for all of it :)

I really should have been more prepared for August's Birthday Stitch Surprise Parcel. Peggy Lee, I'm sorry I'm so late! It will be on it's way very shortly, I promise :)

Just thought I'd share my favourite souvenir that I bought in France. Mostly, my money went on ice creams, postcards and maybe a cheeky bottle of wine or two ;)
But when I spotted this in a trinket shop, it booked a place in my suitcase immediately. Isn't it cute?

I plan on using this tin to store mini cross stitch projects. Maybe when I'm working on a card design perhaps?

I have a day off tomorrow, and since Lawrence is away at Reading Festival, I have decided to dedicate the whole day to craft. I plan on finishing up some cross stitch pieces that have been hiding away for too long. I'd like to do some scrapbooking too, plus the mending on a couple of bags that need tending too. Ooh, it's going to be such a lovely day! I'll be sure to post about my efforts :)
I have a new start to share with you soon too. I like that it all goes quiet on my blog for awhile and then a whole load of posts come at once! I do hope you're enjoying them, I really love typing them :)

Best wishes,
