Despite the damp and rainy weather, my weekend was brightened when a little package arrived in the post. A few weeks ago I mentioned that I had sent Nell, who lives in England, a copy of the Australian magazine, Frankie. I love reading Nell's blog - On The First Day of Marriage - and we've become quite good blog friends over the past few months. She had hinted that she made a little gift for me and was shipping it across the ocean so I was pretty excited to see what goodies it held.
I first unwrapped the most delicious fudge but devoured it before I could even snap a photo. Then inside her pretty little package was the most adorable pint size purse - knitted in stripes with a little nautical gold button. It is the perfect size to hold all my spare coins and I have a feeling she'll be knitting non-stop when requests come in for more - they'd make perfect Christmas gifts! So I'm sending a huge thank you to the very talented, very crafty Nell - now my only question is when are you coming to Australia so you can teach me how to knit?
