As the song from Gilmore Girls says “So welcome to my little corner of the world”. It’s all about me and my crafting – focusing around my love for stitching and sewing along with anything else that catches my eye. So welcome, grab a coffee and happy reading.

Hi Everyone,

It is my 10th Wedding anniversary today and we've blessed to receive some fabulous presents in the post from Steph. I knew Steph was making a couple of things as she had been dropping hints for a couple of weeks! I was amazed when I opened this huge box. A HUGE, HUGE thank you to Steph. xxx

She made each of us an Ami - including my children and put some lovely little gifts in too along with an amazing smoking dragon.

Charlotte was sent the amazing bunny and a little soft monkey.  She has a really cute ruffle skirt on and Lottie has put into the ami basket to live.

Thomas had the cute little sausage dog on the right and Andrew had the Direwolf from Game of Thrones. There seems to be a little ami competition between the family at the moment, Andrew is losing though. He has 2 ami's, Lottie 3 and Thomas has 7. That's pretty amazing since I can't crochet for toffee and just shows how wonderful my blogger friends are.

I had an ami too, introducing Lady Lavinia Giraffe. You all may get up from your curtsy's now. Underneath her couture she does have her giraffe spots. (although we shouldn't really know what is under a Lady's dress). She sits very regally on the fireplace surveying her court (the ami baskets).

Another present to both Hubby and I was one of Steph's smoking dragons. We've not made him smoke yet. I really must get some incense cones. He now lives on our fireplace.

Steph did one of her sweet memory boxes, this one is memories of Cornwall, We honeymooned in Cornwall and had planned to go back this month but a few things came up so we haven't been able to go. Steph also put in a little giraffe, a handmade soap and a little green man charm into the parcel too.

We also had 2 of Steph's fabulous Wee Witchy cards. The first is the annivesary card...

And the second a notecard...I've opened it out so you can see the front and back. They're amazing drawings.

I didn't manage to get the Game of Thrones stitch completed for Andrew, but I am hoping to make him a couple of bits today with some fabric I've had ages. We're off out for a meal tonight and  both have today off, although the weather is a far cry from the glorious sunshine we had 10 years ago.

Well I'm off out for morning coffee with hubby. Have a lovely day all. xx
