Neighbours have been so generous both prior to Christmas and since our return. Only yesterday a very tasty fruit cake and scones appeared. A little later we heard the knocker and there was a lovely bunch of flowers. Our hens were looked after whilst we were away and on our return there was a welcoming lamp on and the stove lit, home sweet home made so warm and cosy by a thoughtful friend and neighbour.
In amidst the abundance of mail we came across a card which enclosed a photo of our little cottage with the sun setting over it, glorious red skies over a newly painted cottage. It was an amazing sight, breathtaking in its beauty, made all the better by the generosity of our neighbours daughter who was visiting took the photo and then had it printed as a gift. We intend to have it enlarged or made into a canvas such is its beauty. We feel blessed to be part of not only the wonderful blogging community but our local community as well.
Friends and family know me so well and this is reflected in the gifts that have been bestowed upon me. Gifts, given with love.
My love of all things Disney is well documented, so it was a joy to receive these amazing craft sets a double whammy, Disney and craft.
A generous gift to start felting, not something I have done before but has been on my to do list for awhile. I also received a book to get me started along with another love of mine crochet, another double whammy.
Ribbons and laces are a great passion so it was joy to see so much of it in my Christmas parcels.
Fabric, wooden letters and a light box added to the amazing collection of craft gifts bestowed upon me. How blessed I am to receive such an abundance of gifts. I am already making lists of projects I want to get started on, using the eclectic mix of gifts I have been given. I love to browse patterns and books and find inspiration in things that surround us. Even the crochet shawls I am working on at the moment have been inspired by the colours of the sea and the living moor that dominate this beautiful Island.
Finally yarn has been gifted from various sources, another eclectic mix of colours and thickness's to add to the creative juices.
I am one very lucky lady and appreciate everything that I am gifted, some of the drawings drawn by our Grandchildren are treasured keepsakes and will be included into my Christmas scrapbook. Another project on my to do list.
Hope all is well with you. A huge thank you for visit to my blog and your comments, another form of generosity that I appreciate so much.
See you soon.
