Initial Heart Swap Received ...

My little squishy arrived today from my partner in the Initial Heart Swap ... I was thrilled when I opened it ... a lovely little card with my second favorite flower on it ... and a beautiful mugrug / candle mat in all sorts of purple fabrics .. my all time favorite colour .... and ... a little heart filled to the brim with lavender ... again another favorite ... ... and a tiny bundle of chocolate hearts ... and yep ... you guessed it ... they are my favorite norti thing ... and all this came from Illene .. from over here ...

very pretty little parcel of goodies ... and I had already eaten a chocolate ... 
haha ... very very nice ... 



lovely little bear in a heart ... too cute ... and all those lovely purples ... 



and this just smells divine and is now hanging in my wardrobe ...


thank you so much Illene ... I love my gifts .... they are all just perfect ...

Now to reveal all ..

OK ladies ... you have gotten your message through loud and clear .... and I am sorry for keeping you in suspense ..... I shall post a full photo of the bits that I sent my partner ... who was Lisa from Lisa's Stitching Lounge

if you pop over to her blog you will see the photo she posted, which is much better than these .... seems she loves the candle mat .... I really did enjoy making these for her ..... scrappy is something I am getting a real feel for .. 


the candle mat ... and on the little scolloped edge of the heart there are tiny beads at each point ... helped to make it look 'finished'


a simple little mug rug .. 


Everything thrown into one pic ... not too clear I'm afraid 


and here is a more recent photo of Harrison .... loves his food ... 


oh ... and I must share .. our little great granddaughter Carleigh Jean was born a on the 10th February .... she is just gorgeous ... I am still to meet her .. next weekend I think they are coming for a visit  .. such a happy Grandma ... 

introducing ... Miss Carleigh Jean .. AKA Daddy's Princess ..


life is really great ...... loving these babies ..... 

oh .. I will have her quilt finished soon too ..... 

busy  busy busy ... haha

Initial Heart Swap in the mail

I am only popping in for a quickie ... to let you know that my Initial Heart Swap gift has gone in the mail today ...

I truly loved making it ... and I do hope my partner likes it ...


Now I do apologise for the fact that this is not a total reveal ... there was something my partner asked for that just may give away the surprise if I show you the full pic ... sorry about that but we do need to keep it all a surprise .. and we only have a couple of weeks to wait ....

I am having a wonderful time with the kids ... miss hubby terribly .. but still having a wonderful time ...

hope you all are having a great week ...
