Good afternoon folks! I have had a super busy week this week so I'm really lagging behind on my blog, sorry xx. But hope to rectify that a little with this post. First up, I'd like to show you all the fantastic parcel that arrived for me in the post yesterday. It's my strawberry swap goodies from Me and Ma. Want to take a look what I received?.................
Well the gorgeous goodies were wrapped up in a metre of the scrummiest strawberry fabric which will be put to good use, and a lovely long piece of green ribbon. Hiding inside were these treasures.
A pretty handmade pouch containing some strawberry bonbons. A pretty handmade heart and this amazing strawberry tea cosy. :o)
Here's the fabric and ribbon. Lots of crafting to be done with this.
A pair of handmade pot holders, very handy indeed.
A lovely long piece of handmade bunting, I love it!
An apron, again all handmade. So much work has gone into all this.
Even the back is pretty.
And not one not two but six strawberry napkins.
A massive thank you Maria, I love all what you've sent. You must have spent so much time at your machine making all this handmade loveliness. I'm overwhelmed. (((((Big Hugs))))))
I still have to finish my goodies to you, but will have them in the post beginning of next week.
Just a reminder to all those who have taken part in my strawberry swap, that you can post pics of your goodies in this flickr group I've created.
Now it's about time I picked a winner for my domestic goddess giveaway. Thank You to all that entered I had some lovely tips and comments left. It would seem baby wipes and vinegar are a big favourite with you all.
So......here goes......I wrote down the names......
Popped them into the bowl.........Laundry basket was full lol :o) and the winner is...................................
Alex from Pink Feather Paradise.
Well done Alex, could you please e-mail me with your details and I will post off your giveaway goodies.
I still haven't forgotten about posting some holiday pics, I will try and get around to it tomorrow. I went strawberry picking yesterday, so have about 6lb strawberries to deal with in a minute. Must get in the back of the kitchen cupboard to grab my jam pan. Although I may struggle bending down, as last night I went to my first Body Combat class in a couple of years and I'm a bit sore, mainly my bum cheeks lol. I have also joined weight watchers this week and I'm now on a mission to get fit and loose 4 1/2 stone GULP. I think prayers may be needed.
Well off to make some strawberry jam. (Not to be consumed by me I might add) lol
