Wayne is my brother-in-law.... like a big brother really... He loves fishing, boating, gardening (especially fruit and vegies) and he's a fun Granddad
Last year he made a quilt, you'll find all of the details here, I quilted it for him and it's now proudly displayed in the spare room. Since then he's been fossicking and prowling, searching for 'the perfect thank you gift' for me
this is what he came up with...........
and I LOVE them! Sebastian and Leopold, the tin cats
The furbies don't mind a bit, even when the tin faces start to wobble.... they're on a coiled spring neck, so are the tails. Funny to watch though, because sometimes the real furbies stand in just the right spot to make it look like their faces are made of tin. Scary!!
And from Sandra in Portugal, this is the beautiful bundle of sscs gifts (thank you so much), you can see another photo on chookyblue's blog - it's the 6th photo down
A gorgeous framed cross stitched cherub, a little hexy pincushion, some 'santa' tissues!, an embroidered linen scissor keeper, some DMC stranded cottons and yes.. there was chocolate once upon a time.... apparently.... The framed cherub is gorgeous and hangs on a wall that I look at all the time .... it's the inspiration for my kitchen makeover (more on that later)
Redwork on linen = tactile delight
Have a fun day today, and you'll meet Frances the Fish tomorrow :-)
ps... the Andrews sisters are coming.....
