Surprise Gift..

On Monday I was handed this pretty parcel at the school gate.....
It was given to me by someone who outed me as dolly dollop back in January!!
(I think it was the bunting in my front window - she lives very nearby!!)
Although I do know this lady from the breastfeeding group we both went to - she wasn't a crazed stalker lol!!!
Penny made this for me because..well just because. A saw this and thought of you gift :)
All the pages inside are this fabulous, with pages for me to write too..ideas and inspiration for my next sewing projects. I love it so much....and for now it will be sitting on a shelf where I can see it and show everyone.
I am in awe of anyone who can take paper and trimmings and produce such wonderful things.
I tried to find you at school this afternoon Penny but I was too late (or you were! -oh ok more likely to be me!!!) so I figured I could thank you and share your handiwork in one go...thank you very very much xx
I was so touched by the thoughtful, generous and gorgeous gift.
As the saying goes crafters are very nice people!!!
(And if that isn't a saying - it should be!!!)
Penny doesn't blog at the minute..but I know she has one waiting to be used ;)...........

Lucky you Claire!! What a fabulous book and so much nicer because it's handmade with love. I think we should all have a special book to write our projects in. Enjoy using it.
