THE BOX GOES TO.........

I had decided as I was celebrating seven years of blogging my gift would go to the person who left the seventh comment on that posting. Congratulations Lori (Meridle)  please leave a comment for me with your address, I am already stitching in pink and Aqua for you.
Welcome to some new visitors to my blog, I hope you will drop by again sometime, and thank you to everyone who visit so often I am glad you find something of interest in my notes, one person who left a comment on my last posting has been visiting my blog for all those past seven years, I felt that was very special, so for Annie ( of Annie Bebop's colouring book blog) I will send you a little token to say thanks for being my blogging friend for so many years.
Distance means we seldom ever get to meet our blogging friends, I am very grateful to one special blogging friend Annette of California Stitcher, I wanted a certain chart recently and no I could not find it here in NZ, Annette to my rescue and in no time at all she had emailed me back to say she had found it and would have it on its way to me shortly, it is a Noah's Ark birth chart that I wanted to stitch for Finn.
It arrived with other goodies included in the parcel
There were a collection of fabrics and threads in purple tonings.

Lovely tawny Browns.

And some DMC threads to fill some of my gaps thank you Annette for such an exciting parcel.

With winter weather here its time for me to enjoy sitting by the fire and stitching, will be back soon to share with you what I have been working on
 Happy stitching everyone.

Hello Lee. I'm Wendy Welsh and I live in Wellington. I'm friends with Annette on Instagram and have just seen the lovely gifts you sent her. She directed me to your blog. You look to be very busy with all your stitching. Everything is gorgeous. And I love the photo at the top of your blog. We went to New Plymouth a few years ago, but never got a clear view like that.
