I had a great surprise waiting for me when I returned home from work today. Recently, I won a giveaway over at Clares. She said she would send something handmade. Just look at the fantastic goodies she sent me.

The label is beautiful - I am going to hang it on my wardrobe.
And the crochet heart will be displayed in my conservatory.

She sent me a fantastic selection of gorgeous fabric to play with - I needed some inspiration to get the sewing mojo back!
And the "piece de reisistance" is this stunning patchwork covered notebook,

with this brilliant painting and heart felt sentiments on the inside - sentiments that Clare and myself share.

Thank you so much Clare, You are so talented and have great taste, and I absolutely love everything - you made my day. How lucky am I! xxxxx

Your gift is really great and so thoughtful. I am picking up some tips for when I eventually do a giveaway. I think I need a few months to organise something as good as this. Lucky you.
