I am such a lucky person...

to have such lovely friends.

I was very excited to arrive home last week from a visit to my mums' and find an unexpected parcel waiting for me from my friend Barb .
 I just managed to stop myself from opening it long enough to take a pic ,lol.
 Just look at the gorgeous pillow Barb made for me , it is truly beautiful , and so me ,lol.

 I am not sure what count the fabric is, but let me tell you ,those stitches are  tiny .
 With a pretty bow and heart on the back.
 Thank you so much again, Barb , I will treasure this pillow .X

 I have finished another charity square , different colours this time .
 And , here's the two together .

I have started my third and final one ,with different colours again , but one day this week is going to be devoted to Butterflies , now the kids are back at school.
Once I've finished on here , I'm off to give the bathroom a good going over ,lol .

Thanks for dropping by ,
 Cath
