Wrapping and Unwrapping....
Well, I have been wrapping and unwrapping here at the Poppins household. I don't think a day goes by where I haven't wrapped or unwrapped a pretty. I have wrapped and sent off the giveaway parcel for Ticking Stripes Wrapped a little something for Karen and wrapped a couple of pretties that have been kindly purchased from my little Blogshop
Karen asked so nicely if we could do a little swap, as she fell in love, well alright that may be a little strong, she liked very much, the little Rag Hearts I have been making and wanted me to make her a Christmas one in exchange for a couple of her pretties. I know I loved the bean bags Karen made, and was going to get going one day to have a little go at making some for Master. P, though Karen kindly offered to help me out and make them for me. Now isn't that kind :)
So I have been unwrapping too. Norty Karen didn't only send me the gorgeous bean bags for Master Poppins but also a beautiful doll's quilt for Miss. Poppins and the most adorable Hummel handmade card for me.
Isn't the Peter Rabbit fabric gorgeous on the beautifully handmade quilt.
It is quilted and backed in a beautiful pink polka dot.
And perfect for Rosy, Miss. Poppins' favourite doll, I don't know whether Karen has had a sneaky look at the dimensions of Rosy as she is rather a tall toddler sized doll, but the little quilt is perfect for her and keeps her nice and warm next to Miss. Poppins' bed
Now for the cute bean bags, I had mentioned to Karen that my son loves all things fire related, loves Fireman Sam and engines and ladders. At 3 I am amazed how he knows exactly what he wants to be when he grows up, a firefighter. I am 36 and am yet to know what I want to be when i grow up ;)
Look at the wonderful fabric Karen made them up in, perfect for him.
Karen kindly made two more up in CK Stanley, aren't they cute.
Thank you so much Karen, very, very kind of you. Karen has set up a little shop River's Patch where she has some lovely handmade treats on offer.
Well there is only so much wrapping and unwrapping I can take in one post :)
So, so much more to come :)
Mmmmm, now I wonder what do you prefer, wrapping or unwrapping ;)
