Surprise, surprise!

I had a parcel this week. One that has flown half way a round the world. Just for me. Oh that did make me feel special. It came completely out of the blue. Well I knew it was coming but I hadn’t cottoned on to the fact that I had entered a little competition! Sewing Daisies had posted a photo of an old winter Olympics star and I knew who it was. It was as simple as that, so thank you Sonia Hennie! And my parcel……

001Beautifully wrapped….

002Apple blossom and turquoise ribbon. Already for a transformation into… well decopatch, possibly, and hair ribbons for one of my little ladies. (More about them next week. I’ve been tweaking and I think I have it all sewn up! Ouch!)

003Gently, gently….

004Peel carefully….

006A twist this way… and one that way…

008Beautifully soft. Beautiful subtle colour. And oh so special. I have never had such a special yarn. Baby Alpaca….

007All the way from Australia. Thank you. Now to find a pattern. 🙂
