J is 5!

Look at my lil chap! With his fifth birthday appoaching I decided to take Jacob, his friend Adam & Adam's sister Chloe to Anglessey Sea Zoo to celebrate. We had a lovely couple of hours looking at the sea horses and little sharks, browsing the gift shop and playing on the bouncy castle.

Jacob was 5 on November 18th - Happy Birthday son!!!

Exchange with Ronel

Hello My Blogland Buddies
Here are a couple of pics of the piece I stitched for my recent exchange with Ronel and the bits I sent to her.
I made a needlebook and decorated it with blackwork using a pattern from Just Cross Stitch magazine. And most of the goodies I sent were charts as Ronel had said it was hard to get hold of charts in SA. I also included a customise match box kit as I know Ronel likes papercraft too and some mini hama beads.
Apologies for the picture quality - my camera was poorly and I was borrowing mum's which I didnt find very easy to use.

Exchange from Ronel

I was having a bad day on friday until I opened the door to the postie and received this....
I 'met' Ronel via blogging this year and not only was I impressed with her stitching but also her gorgeous photo mosaics which she uses to display her work. These are her images - shamelessly stolen from her blog.
I received a lovely fat parcel full of goodies including silk thread, a rose scented sachet, heart charms and a pink tape measure but pride of place are this needlebook and scissor fob. They are so perfect I actually had a little cry. This is my first needlebook. I have made a few but always for other people so now at last I have one of my own. See the initials - I have been LE for so long but I got married almost 3 months ago and I am now LC and this is the first time I have anything with my new initials on.
Ronel Thank You. I hope the parcel I sent for you arrives soon. Please forgive the stolen pics and I hope to be able to exchange with you again.
