Can't believe my luck!

Care and diligence
bring luck.
-English proverb.

Now that the internet is fixed, I'm up and running. I plan to answer all the emails that have been sent to me as soon as  possible.  It's interesting how much we depend on the internet and how quickly we are cut off from doing certain things without it. But on a happier note, I can't believe my luck. Look what arrived at work for me........

A Christmas box?? Well no, inside the Christmas box is a stack of goodies and I can keep the Christmas box as well. A lovely lady who lives in town and was a mad craft person has been culling. Lucky me I received her cast off's. Very sad that. lol.
Everything from made up blocks, wooden folk art gear, pens, pipe cleaners, was like Christmas. Many thanks Margaret. You are very kind. Indeed alot of things made from my treasure will end up at the library. I also received an envelope from lovely Vickie and was stoked when I opened it up to find these wonderful books...
I can see some things being knitted from those gorgeous books. Many thanks Vickie you little love. Oooh Mr. Squiggle is finished too. He was a bit fiddly, there were so many strands of wool hanging off him.

To be truly honest with you though, he is a bit special. The kids have gone wild on the other characters at work already, so Mr. Squiggle has got to be the ants pants of the lot. This is him at another angle.

This is what else happened on the weekend. I found a cute little kitten pattern on the Amy Butler site. It is a free download so you can skip over to her site and have a look around. I made two of these lovelies and took them to work with me. Yes they were dragged around.
I have used scraps given to me from Heather and I knew they would come in handy...I always say that.

Any second it will be tea time, I haven't seen my chooks yet or collected the eggs, so I better get cracking. I will catch up with you soon and happy stitching until then. Kind regards, Anita.

I love your Mr Squiggle! Looks like a lot of work has gone into making him. He may have to sit on a high shelf so he is safe from little hands?

Mr Squiggle is awesome - that was a show I loved when I was a child. Your box of goodies looks like fun - I am sure you will put it all the good use. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
