Hello blog pals!
Already one week of the new year gone and I'm only now getting around to posting - mainly because I just needed a break so please forgive me for not visiting and commenting on your blogs.
Not much has been happening until today that is!! I have been busy trying to clean up about home and I tell myself that it's early (very early, too early!! ) spring cleaning!
I had finished cleaning the windows and sat down to lunch today when the postman rang my doorbell and gave me a long awaited package!
Take a look at this awesome rag doll by Faye of Primitive Lace. Faye is one of the sweetest bloggers you'll ever meet and a dear sister in the Lord. She is such a blessing to know!
Her dress and coat are beautiful!
Back in Nov. Faye and I agreed to a swap and what with postal disruptions and poor weather, Faye's gift arrived today! I'm so glad it arrived at last! We both thought it must have been lost in the post and gone for good but it's here - safe and sound all the way from Canada!! HURRAY!!
Now if you've never visited Faye's blog you really are missing out! Faye calls her blogs Primitive Lace and The Blessed Hearth and you need to follow. Faye is not only a talented crafter but a homemaker with a wealth of tips and recipes and encouragement that will bless your heart and home!
Here's a close up of her face and hair - it's just wonderful! I'm so thrilled to have a such an amazing raggy doll!!
She's got the cutest ever little ditty bag with a snowman inside! This pic show a close up of the bag which Faye tells me is made from 'Anne of Green Gables' fabric from Prince Edward Island!
How fantastic is that?!!! I have loved 'Anne of Green Gables' since I was a slip of a girl and one of my dreams is to visit P.E.I some day.
Faye allowed me to name her so I've decided to call her Miss Cordelia as that was what Anne wanted to be called!
THANK YOU SO MUCH FAYE, FOR SUCH A BEAUTIFUL GIFT! I LOVE HER!
I am so pleased we got to do this swap!
Silly me forgot to take a pic of the gift I made for Faye so I hope Faye doesn't mind me 'borrowing' the one from her post.
I'm only just getting back to stitching and have a few projects on the go which I will post about soon as I make more progress on them. Gotta make some Valentine hearts!
Well it's time to feed the hungry here so I thank you for visiting and I hope to get back to 'normal' soon!
Hope everyone is off to a wonderful start in this new year!
Hardly worth mentioning
