I turned 21 on Saturday (which is over half way to 40 and apparently "all downhill from now on" as people kindly keep pointing out) and have come home from Germany for a few days.
On Friday I arrived home having taken 2 wrong trains, ending up in a Frankfurt ghetto, nearly missing the plane and getting to Newcastle only to find that although I had made the flight my suitcase hadn't! After the not-too-successful journey I was very pleased to arrive home to a big pile of post on my bed...
The parcels contain beautiful fabrics from Nature's Threads and from Japan, bright pink tweezers and a prize for winning Sarah's giveaway.
I knew I would be getting a lovely knitted coffee cup accessory but was delighted to find a beautifully sewn needle case too! This was the only photo where the sun wasn't so bright everything came out totally white. The needle case cover is a very jazzy orange and I am so impressed by how neat her work is.
Thank you so much, Sarah!
I got some great crafty things for my birthday as well including some more Japanese fabrics and a really good book about sewing your own clothes.
Hope everybody had as good a weekend as I've had!
p.s. in case you were wondering, the suitcase made it back home on Saturday morning- good old British Airways :)
