Surprises, angels and some other things....

I got a surprise a few days ago, a blog award! It was Carol who gave it to me, I´m so honored.
I don´t know who I will give it to, there are too many to choose from.... I will think that over.


Another surprise. Today I got a little parcel in my mailbox, and look what I found in it:


They were sent to me from Sarah, thank you very much, they are so cute. I will use them hanging up something special!

The stitchery is finished. I will add some buttons on it when quilted; flowers in the basket for example.... Tomorrow I will put on a green border and then start quilting...
And then the other two angels are waiting to be stitched.... Yes, there are two more now, My Sewing Angel and My Kitchen Angel. Just waiting for My Christmas Angel to appear.... She´s on her way....

This afternoon I´ve been on a "fabric hunt" trip together with my daugther. We went to a place called "Skroten" in Kinna. They sell all sorts of fabrics, quite cheap, and they have a lot of American quilting fabrics. I will post pictures of my findings later, because this week my camera is in Greece together with my hubby! (Lucky them!) I have to trust on Josefin and her camera and wait for her taking my photos. Be patient!
We bought a piece of fleece, pink with white dots, for this little girl. Yesterday we found a little cute basket perfect for her to sleep in. Together they will be a perfect gift. I hope Alice (it´s the kitten´s name) can´t read :)
At last a picture of my findings, aren´t they beautyful, I really love this colours, they are "mine". Even if I love spring and summer, autumn is my favorite season. The colours, the fresh air, sunny days, windy and rainy days sitting inside with candles...

Take care all my friends out there....
Helena

Your stitchery is lovely - those 2 colours always look nice together.

The leaves look like Maples - are they? They are an amazing range of colours.

What a beautiful kitten! I have a black and white kitty too! I also have a bi-black (only black and white) Sheltie that we got to match the kitty! I am partial to black and white pets!!
