A Lovely Suprise!

Unusually, I was working from home today. I was very surprised when the postman rang the doorbell - I wasn't expecting anything. It was a large envelope from Lindsay of Caring Stitcher.

A while ago I was asking for ideas for a birth sampler with a TW dragon theme. Lindsay offered to lend me her copy of 'you were hatched'. I opened the envelope, and there it was, complete with a little note (lovely card - very pretty!) and the required dinky dyes 'Fantasy Blue'. The real surprise came when I read the notelet - Lindsay was GIVING, not lending, me the chart. I actually had to text her to make sure I'd got that bit right!!! Thank you Lindsay, for a very generous gift - you really made my week!



I was very tempted to start kitting up the project immediately, but like a good girl I finished the work I needed to do. Just before going over to Louise's I popped over to Patterns online to buy Needle Guardian (I need an appropriate alphabet, right). What do you know, the dragon scissor fob wandered into my basket too....

My school friend Leanne is staying this weekend, so tomorrow after work I need to clean. A LOT (it's been neglected)... maybe I'll be able to get started on Sunday!

Good for you, Jo, and what a lovely thought, Lindsay! Teresa's small dragons are her best ones IMHO - so of course you couldn't live without those two little charmers, lol.
