Lovely Mail & Another Hexy Flower

Last week, I was surprised & delighted to see this among the mail in my postbox...
Sunny, my lovely friend who blogs at Quilting Dreams, sent me this postcard... she was making another one for a swap & she has sent me an extra one she made... don't you love the stitching detail...
 
 









I am amazed that the postage stamp stayed on, travelling across the miles! 
Sunny, you are so thoughtful & I really love it, big hugs to you my friend x

It's time to start a new project... wanted something non-Christmas, so I have decided on a very lovely table runner (seem to have a thing about runners lately!) designed by Jenny of Elefantz. You can see the design part way down this page on Jenny's blog.
 I was looking through the Overload for suitable fabrics, & lo I even have the same fabrics she has used... & as they have languished there for a while now & I had no plan for them in the first place, I will be cutting into them now...

I have added another yellow flower to my Brown-Eyed flower collection this week...

Thank You Karen for hosting the One Flower Wednesday linky for us... if you would like to go visit other bloggers who make these pretty flowers, you can click here.

Got lots of blog reading to catch up on tonight!! Amazing how much happens in a few short days...

Thank you everyone for your kind wishes for the Site Manager - he is fully recovered from his Hulk-like swelling, & spent the weekend recovering from the stress of what happened. He's back to his very cute self x
