Advent Swap - Day 2 and a little request....

I'm really enjoying this advent swap, seeing everyone's little packages opened each day and relishing the fact that it's just for grownups!!! Much to the kids dismay today I opened my next package whilst they were outside in the snow, they are so desperate to pick a package from the bag but I being a little selfish I'm afraid!!!! Maybe I'll share next week!!!

I went for a big package from Annie this time with the clue...

and tantalisingly you can just make out the wool threads...

Inside was this delightful Victorian Purse Tapestry Kit
I haven't tackled a tapestry for some time and I love the colours in this kit so am looking forward to some cosy nights by the fire working on this project.

Finally I have a little request, my daughter Rachel has been desperate for some time to have her own blog and as we have been snowed in the past few days I relented and she has been busy building her own little piece of blogland, I think I have produced a clone (only a better improved version) as she loves trying new crafts, reads copious amounts books, enjoys hunting for bargains in charity shops, is a terrible hoarder, takes a mean photograph and is a whizz with all this techno stuff. The only thing she is missing is a few followers so it would make her day if you would pop over to her blog Crafty Sweet Heart and say hi
