This week, I have a new best friend – the postman! We check our mailbox excitedly every evening when we get back from work. And we’re usually both disappointed. But, over the last week, my pal has delivered me 3 exciting packages!!!
Inside package number 1 was Issue 13 of ‘Mollie Makes’.
Look..... free buttons!!! How cute are they?! And how pretty is the colour?! There’s lots of cuteness and prettiness inside the magazine too. There are so, so, so many things that I need to add to my ‘dream shopping list’. And there’s a lovely, colourful crocheted cushion tutorial. I think I might give it a try, to enhance my new-found granny square skills.
Package number 2 contained Issue 11 of ‘Mollie’. Don’t ask! It took 3 months (and countless trying-to-stay-calm-and-not-write-any-naughty-words emails) for them to send me my first subscription issue. And I haven’t received any of the magazines in the right order..... It was really annoying! But now I’ve got all the issues I’m due, and they’ve promised me a few ‘extra’ magazines after my subscription officially ends. So, I’m happy now!
Issue 11 came with a cute kit for making a little Russian doll key ring. And look at the little mice on the front cover. Look at that teeny-tiny little knitted cardie!!! I’d LOVE to make myself and little well-dressed mousie. But I think it would all be way too fiddly for me. Maybe one day??? This issue has inspired me to try out some embroidery. There are instructions for making an embroidered cuckoo clock, and I’d LOVE it for my crafting room!
Package Number 3 was the most exciting one of all! It contained a giveaway prize from the lovely and VERY generous Jules at The Awkward Niche. THANK YOU JULES!!! Look at all the goodies I won.....
A cute hedgehog embroidery kit (more prompting for me to get my embroidery on):
A sweet little blue heart:
A kitty key ring (look what he ate for dinner):
And the super-cute ‘Super Cute’ book:
Thanks, postie!!! What will you bring for me this week, I wonder.....
And thanks again, Jules!!!Hugs to you and all my lovely blogging friends,
