Thank you Karin - I will Pay It Forward!

Hi there,  I just looked at my blog and realised I haven't posted since the 3rd of November!  I have been solidly decorating and have at last finished the wallpaper scraping, rubbing down, washing down, painting, painting and painting!  I was getting a tad fed up with it but, now the end is in sight, I am moving furniture back in and now have the curtains to make.

Thank you all so much for the lovely comments on my Granny Stripe blanket, it was really lovely of you to take the trouble to comment as there are soooo many Granny Stripe blankets out there at the moment, so thank you again, it is much appreciated.  I am slowly working on a new project which I am hoping to share with you all soon.

In the midst of the Kimbles chaos, a surprise arrived from lovely Karin :-

A package, because I had left a comment on her blog when she did her Pay It Forward.

Inside was sooooooo.........................................Dutch!!!!  Fabulous  have a peeeeeek

Gorgeous blue and white, and wait......................

A hand made coaster for my teapot (actually it is waaay to nice to put my teapot on!)  and look at that lovely little tag she had made with beads adorning it!

There were also two Dutch pot holders, can you see the little couple kissing and the lovely windmill? 

Karin, I can't thank you enough, you certainly made my day. 

So .........

Now it is my turn to Pay It Forward, so if any of you would like to take part, just leave me a comment and after lets say a week, I shall send three of you a little something to brighten your days too!  Then of course it will be your turn to do the same.

Take care all of you

Speak soon xx
