Incoming Mail and finishes

Some lovely surprises arrived in the snail mail this week. The first was a thank-you gift from Cathy, a gorgeous needlecase, a good sample of Whisperweft (not shown) and a box of Darrel-lea chocolates that didn't survive long enough for a photo. Thank-you Cathy!Second was from Karol-ann, a belated birthday gift, one can never have too many hanging hearts around the place and they're a lovely additon to my craft room. Thank-you Karol-ann.I've been very busy on the stitching front. These two samples are from "Christmas Truffles" by Helen Stubbings, if you're going to Houston Market keep an eye out for them on Helen's stall and if you're quick enough you might just be able to own these samples.They're quick and easy projects to whip up in time for Christmas.
I'm also busily working away on gifts for the Stitcher's Angel, Xmas Advent and Rainbow Swaps but no sneaky peaks just yet.
Also thank-you to everyone who left lovely comments about my DS, he's improving slowly, he hasn't returned to shool today with everyone else but he won't be far away.

I am so glad your boy is feeling better Jo, they are secretive little creatures at times, and I am sure that he really didn't mind not making it back to school today :) Your goodies are just fabulous, happy mail is always good.
