Surprise in the mail
I received the most wonderful package in the mail today sent by the very lovely Julie. Julie is a crafty friend (follow her crafty adventures on her blog and she also writes regularly on the &Stitches blog !) and designer of beautiful embroidery and knitting patterns. As I'm terrible at knitting, Julie offered to make Pindsvin a scarf. It suits him so well and multi-coloured scarfs are his most favourite kind of scarf! As you can tell from the photo I'm still not quite finished with adding Pindsvin's quills to his head but he just had to pose with his new scarf. Once Pindsvin's quills are done I will write a post about the idea I launched last year. I was a little busy in the past few months but I'm hoping to do more with the plans I had for Pindsvin this Spring/Summer.
These are the other goodies Julie sent me:
Recently we had discussed Nancy Drew books on Twitter because of this awesome redwork piece based on a Nancy Drew illustration. I am not familiar with the Nancy Drew books (although I found out later some of them were released here about 10 years ago) and I was delighted to find a copy in the package alongside some cute stickers, a pen, card and bookmark. :)
Now to plot a surprise (?) package for Julie, which is almost as much fun as receiving one!
