My dear friend Lynne sent me a parcel long ago. The postal service has really made to it's nickname "snailmail". It was sent in the beginning of december and arrived last week. I think this late birthday gift was the best one this year, whoops I mean last year. :) when I unfolded the black silk paper the cutest christmas ornament appeared. Now I have 8 owls for my christmas tree next year. It's lovely!
Next parcel contained the most lovely carved owl in wood. It is amazing. I showed it to the budgies and they stared at it. I haven't decided yet if it's going to be painted or just as it is. Maybe you, dear readers, could give me a suggestion here
Then it was the most amazing fabric, a yard of printed cotton with my favourite animals on. Owls an bats and full moons. First I thought cusions, then I thought why not use it for a skirt, time to start looking for the perfect pattern maybe a A-line skirt with a black frill, something like that. Suggestions again, please
When I was home and sick Lynne said she would send me a knitting pattern so I had something useful to do when I was sad. Aren't these armwarmers beautiful? I love the colours of them. Maybe I can poke around in my hidings to see if I can gather some yarn scraps for the roses.
Lynne is such a generous person and I truly see her as my friend even though we have never met. When I was sad she sent me a mail to cheer me up and told me she was going to send me the pattern. I'm so grateful for these gifts. If you doesn't know who I'm talking about, pleas visit her beautiful blog and her amazing Gothic Mansion. She also have a web shop were you can buy different furnitures and decorations for the perfect Gothic home.
