Spoilt Rotten!!

You know how I said I had won another giveaway the other day? Well I came home from work today to find another big box from the postie, oh how spoilt am I? Look what the lovely Alison from Cardygirl has sent me....


A beautiful Rosalie Quinlan card and stitchery pattern to match the design on the card (how cute is that little house on a hill?!!)  Some scraps from her stash...Wow...


Check out all that Heather Ross and other gorgeous fabrics in there. I have been eyeing off that Princess and the Pea fabric for ages, I love it!


Mmmm chocolate (just as good as icecream!). I have never tried this flavour before, yum.

And what was in the big parcel?....


A gorgeous, made-by-Alison handbag. Beautifully created with lovely fabrics from the City Blooms range (I adore these colours).


I love the oh-so-neat frill around the top of the bag, and the little handles that are so neatly stitched on. The circle fabric has been fussy cut to add a wonderful detail to the bag.

Thank you so much Alison for your fabulous and generous giveaway, I'm so glad I won! I think you will all agree how spoilt I have been.


While on the subject of giveaways, look at the stunning orchid I was given the other day from one of the lovely ladies I work with....


 I will try hard not to kill it!


And there will be a little giveaway here very soon, keep your eyes open...! xo

Oh what a lovely way to know you're loved and cared about! The package held such treasure...not sure how to rate high enough to get a bag, so please tell me what I'm doing wrong when only school books, coins for hubby and junk mail are in my mailbox! LOL

Savor the chocolate for us and when you step out with your new bag, swing it sassily for me!

The orchid is lovely and so is the pool behind it! Hope this day is as happy as the happiest one you've ever had!

How lucky, Cathy! What a box of treasures! That chocolate has caught my eye. I think I'll have to get some as I can no longer find the Lindt with sea salt. :-(
