RAKs received .

I have heard that four out of the six RAKs have been received ,so I can show a few pictures .

I made these two bee keeps , the chart is a freebie from The Drawn Thread . One I sent to Becky , and it got to her really quickly .I'm glad to say that she loves it. If you haven't visited Beckys' blog before ,please do so . She does some gorgeous stitching , amazing finishing and she is a lovely person to boot . The other one went to my friend Dawn who fosters two beehives , lol . I made two little pillows using a Lizzie Kate freebie . One was sent to Hazel , and one to my new blogging friend Bernadett . In a comment , Bernadett said that she is unable to buy evenweave where she lives ,so I sent her a few pieces of fabric as well. I'm hoping the other two have arrived safely , but will have to wait and see.

And , I received a gift myself through the post .

A while ago , Bonnie ( morethanjustcrossstitching.blogspot.com ) (blogger won't let me put in a link here for some reason ) had a little competiton on her blog to find the deliberate blooper in a picture , and I won . I received a lovely hand care kit ,which I may just use tonight whilst in front of the TV , lol .Thanks again , Bonnie . Just need to let people know that I have changed my comment settings to disallow anonymous comments , as after removing word verification I started to get some trash messages.

Thanks for dropping by ,

Make that five...thank you so much. I got back from the hospital last night but did not open my post until this morning and then had to go to work. The book is beautiful and the yoga kitten card very appropriate as I am going to start yoga next week at the support center. Thank you so very, very much. You are wonderful
