Given and Received

Another RAK arrived at a good home.....this time the package went to Jo of Serendipitous Stitching.


Pin keep "Bee Simple" design by Ewe & Eye & Friends and a matching scissor fob designed by me


Some bee-themed fabric, floss and bee-themed buttons

I found it very 'serendipitous' the RAK was included in Jo's "The Alphabet Club" blog post featuring the letter "K".  Yes, "bee" doesn't start with 'K'......but "Kim" does - HA!

I was away for a few days visiting friends, arriving back home yesterday afternoon. I was absolutely floored to open a package from Marlene from Stitching By the Lake


A darling stitching bag and lovely card


Inside has lots of pockets for my stitching and supplies

Thank you SO VERY MUCH, Marlene! I've never EVER had anything like this. Your thoughtfulness and generosity are appreciated beyond words.

OK - four more RAKs to get in the mail later this week - YIPPEE!!

  13. Two wonderful gifts Kim, both given and received!

    Marlene's pretty creation has just reminded me of a similar WIP that has been lurking in my "dreaded cupboard" for a couple of years! I really should make a list and get the lurkers finished! Now, can I actually do that, do you think ????!!!!!!........
