not so lazy daisy

Just before Christmas my postman arrived with a parcel and inside all wrapped up so prettily.


Gorgeous gifts from my lovely friend, Lazy Daisy Jones.

Cue squeals of sheer delight as I opened parcel after parcel of beautiful handmade goodies.

How amazing are they? I am in love.  I am a little ashamed to say that the lovely doll was intended for my little fairy but I don't think I can part with her.  Can you blame me.  But I feel bad.

So after discussions with Miss Daisy it has been arranged that I can be her guardian until the little fairy is old enough to really appreciate her.  I think it's safer that way.

And those crochet toadstools, the cherry brooch and snowflake.  I love, love, love my gifts and if that wasn't enough in the parcel was some of the most amazing fabric tape.  I have been properly spoilt.

So to my wonderful blogging friend, thank you lovely Daisy for really spoiling me.  Isn't blog land wonderful?

This exchange of gifts was part of the Snowflake Swap organised by Kate.  Thank you so very much.

Thanks so much to everyone for their comments over the festive season and welcome to all my lovely new readers.  I hope you enjoy it here.

Happy New Year. x

  7. Ooh, you lucky lady, what a parcel! I really love the doll - I saw a pattern for one like that in Mollie Makes a while back but never had time to make it. I definitely think you should look after it, just for a while...
