|The multi coloured tulips we were given when Mini Cuckoo was born|
Then there are actual physical gifts, when I received this I was just so thrilled. Yesterday I found myself once again opening a parcel from Sandi. I had no idea she'd sent something, she kept very quiet about it (you monkey, Sandi!), I recognised her hand writing straight away and dashed to get my camera.
Inside I found this gorgeous card, so much detail and thought that has gone into it. Baa baa black sheep nursery rhyme on the paper and photo's of Mini Cuckoo from my blog.
There was a hand written note inside the card and two ribboned parcels, Big Cuckoo shot off with the envelope, tissue paper and ribbons. I found them under his pillow when made his bed this morning. Funny little onion!
This hanging decoration represents me and my three boys and will look so lovely in Mini Cuckoo's nursery. I've popped it on the door knob till I get my hammer out where upon I'll put it on the wall where he'll be able to see it when he starts to sleep in there.
Each heart is embellished with careful embroidery. This was Sandi's first foray into felting, I think it went well for her!
There's even a little bird on the bell, actually the bell tinkles very nicely when the door is opened so may be it'll stay on the door knob.
The back is gorgeous too.
The second parcel held these booties knitted by Sandi using Bamboo and cotton yarn. They are so soft and they smell very nice too!
All together now, ahhhhhh!
Look at his little legs, they're beginning to chubby up now, losing their newborn bird like appearance. Can you believe he is now four weeks old?
Thank you Sandi, you're such a lovely lady to spring this surprise on me. I love everything you have made for my little baby. These items will be going in his memory box when he gets older.
I've been given an award! I've not had an award before, another gift from blogland, as it's a first for me I thought I'd play along this time. I'm delighted that Sarah from Squiggling About has named me as one of her five blogs to pass the Liebster Award to. Thank you ever so much! Now as I understand it I'm to name 5 blogs to receive the award from me, that's a bit tricky but I'll have a go, this award has been going for a while and I think some of my fav blogs have already had this one bestowed upon them.
1. Things I learnt the hard way
3. Little Tin Bird
4. Apples and Pears
5. Where your heart is
All you have to do is thank the person who gave you it and link back to them, then choose your 5 blogs to pass it on to and leave them a message to say you've given them the liebster award. Join in if you fancy it but don't feel obliged!
I have a lot of WiP's going on at the moment so I'm going to give you all a sneak peek at each one over the next few days. See you tomorrow!
