Lovely Things Come in Threes


Just wait till you see the next 3 exciting instalments of my year of gifts from Melody from The House on The Side Of TheHill Blog. Wrapped in apple green tissue and topped with vintage inspired cards, they were too pretty to open straight away. I saved them till I had a quiet moment on a sunny afternoon, made myself a cup of tea and had a little present party. 

February with Valentines Day is the month of loooove... The romantic scent of lavender wafted up from this parcel as I peeled back the paper. It turned out to be a lovely bag of linen filled with dried lavender topped with a beautiful felt flower.


I unwrapped the bundle and unfolded ... 2 embroidered Pillow Cases ...
Is that not the most romantic thing ever?!! I just love them!!!!


The month of March... the year is Marching along and it's time to get organised , what better way than using a notepad, especially one with Blue Mountain Daisy embroidered on the front. And more gorgeous scented lavender presented between 2 pages of a book sewn together.
A note pad with a row of daisies...


The next Month is April with a theme of  Let's Get Sewing, with the help of this super fun sewing kit...
...full of everything I need, threads, pins, ric rac, spare polka dot fabric. Melody's intuition must have been telling her something when she chose a red and green theme because I started a quilt in those colours a few months ago. It was pushed to the back of the cupboard as I was tempted by other projects.
Here it is - back out of the cupboard and back on my sewing table!!

Thank you Melody!! You are so clever at coming up with such wonderful and thoughtful gifts. Your giveaway for a year of gifts was the best ever giveaway anyone could ever win and I'm Sooo lucky it was me!
 Thank you! Thank You ! Thank You!!

I love the idea of sending someone a parcel each month with something thoughtful in it. It's just such a lovely thing to do (and to look forward to !)

It couldnt have happened to a nicer person in my book.
