An unexpected gift.

Skirt from a charity Shop. (Front)
Yesterday I visited my amazingly talented friend Gill to drop of my recycled Bunnies as she is kindly selling them on her stall today at Formby Vintage Market. When I arrived Gill gave me a bag and said her friend Janet saw this in a charity shop and bought it for me. She thought it would make a great bunny. It is a beautiful wool skirt. I wish it fitted me as I would keep it and wear it, it is so lovely. Alas it does not and I am looking forward to making a bunny or even two from this garment. Thank you Janet for this gorgeous gift it was so kind of you to think of me. 
Life is still busy at the minute, all in a good way I must say. I am still working part time in a little local card shop which I love but I am also being very creative, working on several new quilt designs and cushions. Here is a sneak peak on one of the projects I am working on. Its all very exciting as it is a collaboration with a wonderful person however, I am keeping it all under wraps for now but I promise all will be revealed in due course.
Well its goodbye January and hello February which started of with a very special 50th birthday for my DH which we celebrated with a lovely meal out and a tea party on the day. One can never have enough cake which I have to say Colin ate most of but it was his birthday so its allowed.

Happy Birthday to Colin.
Good to hear from you Susan - I am sure you will be very creative with the skirt. Hope the bunnies sell well for you. Glad to hear that you have a job you enjoy.
We are back in Spain for the month of Feb and so far good weather. xx
