Sighing with relief

Yep, this is a happy dance, not only because it's just 3 more sleeps until 'the man' comes home but because over two weeks ago I posted my Tiny Treasures 2 exchange pin cushion off to Theresa from giraffexing  in the States.
Well, since then I had ordered and received those orders from the States and yet this little treasure hadn't arrived.  I can tell you I was really getting worried.  Today, the lovely Theresa has e-mailed me to say that it had finished it's extended journey and she loves it, so now I can share with you what I sent.029
  Theresa just loves giraffes, so for me there was no other choice but to find something  'giraffy' for her.  After digging in my limited (wink) stash I was also able to find giraffy fabric for the borders and back, plus a few beads, after all every gal has to have a bit of bling! Then the next challenge was suitable cording - huh, easier said than done 030 so it was a case of digging through my school teacher stash to find some dye.  All in all I'm pretty happy with the outcome and am absolutely thrilled that Theresa likes it.
Well, there are a few other bits and bobs to share with you, but I'll save those for my next post.

  1. 3 more sleeps! Boy hope you're stocked up on firewood, he's going to be mighty cold when he gets off that plane!!

  2. Three more sleeps- how exciting! You'll be stoked to have Him back again.

  3. Great pincushion for a giraffe addict hun.
    DO, DO , DO X 3, how exciting and actually knowing that he is now on kiwi soil. Breathe in, breathe out, breathe in, breathe out, I can feel the excitement..... hope you've got a paper bag ready ....
    hugs Deb

  4. So happy for you that your hubby is nearly home. Your giraffe is gorgeous, perfect finishing too!
