First of all, Thankyou for all the lovely comments on my last post - the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway! I am completely overwhelmed by all the comments and I just can't reply to them all. Sorry! But I have enjoyed reading them all :)
The giveaway is still open until the end of Friday, and you can enter here if you're interested

The other day I received an unexpected package and it just made my day! The lovely Helen from Archie the Wonder Dog sent me a Thankyou present for the cushion/pillow cover she won in my last giveaway. A beautiful hoop made using Aneela Hoey's not even released line A Walk in The Woods. Isn't it beautiful? The Wonder Dog himself even popped a wee something in the package for my dog Ava :)


Ava was a bit overcome that a famous, handsome chap like Archie sent her some biscuits, but she still managed to munch them pretty quickly!


Thankyou so much Helen, you really didn't have to send me anything, but I'm very glad you did x

Now I need to get back to some more frantic present making while I wait in for the delivery of a new oven. Our oven packed in about 3 weeks ago and we are finally getting it replaced - Yay! I'll be able to cook a roast for Christmas after all :)

Happy Thursday!

  1. That is such a lovely gift, and so sweet to include something for Ava!

  2. Lovely hoop, and isnt archie generous, not many dogs share biscuits!!

  3. Are you sure it was Archie and not Helen thinking Archie needs a diet after all his hard work picking winners! Lucky you Fiona on the hoop - just love the little Red fabric

  4. I love that Archie and Ava are internet dating. Its brilliant :-)

  5. What a cool gift! It's always so nice to receive something unexpected ;0

  6. Ava looks like she's trying to will the biscuits out of your hand! Glad she liked them and you like the hoop!

  7. How on earth have you managed without an oven? Isn't it lovely to be appreciated? Helen's a wee pet! Jxo

  8. Helen is a star huh!!
    Ava, you be careful of that canine Romeo!!

  9. Oooh, very pretty, and Ava looks suitably enchanted by the parcel too!

  11. Lucky you and Ava! What great gifts :)


Thanks for visiting my blog. I love reading comments and I try hard to reply to them all, but I'm a busy Mum and sometimes there just aren't enough hours in the day. Please don't be offended if I don't reply :)
