Crafty in the Med

I'm here to enjoy meeting other crafters and to share my ideas and projects. I love to crochet,cross stitch and embroidery but I'm keen to try new crafts too. I love music and I love to sing! Singing makes me happy. I collect jugs....its their shape I think! I am addicted to yarn and buttons. I get lost in book shops and can spend all morning there and I absolutely adore rummaging in flea markets. I love to read sci´fi/fantasy,buried treasure, and off world adventures. I have a passion for history! I would be the first passenger on the first time machine ! I BELIEVE IN MAGIC!

It had to be today!


Today is the right day for it I told myself!

I am going to tell you what I received from my swap partner....ok no groaning,or mumbling about it being another display of swap goodies....no swapping over to facebook now ...bear with me and admire the generosity of my Send a little Love swap partner; PJ at The Snail Garden

Hosted by  Tracy at Mad about Bags.

 First of all I have to tell you it was I like what you like from the very start. Quite canny really!!!
PJ collects jugs...I collect jugs....PJ loves cats....me too!   She is a button fanatic.....you guessed right me too! ......and so it goes on!!! 
She loves crochet too!
She is in fact a fantastic crocheter just look here and I think you will agree with me!



You just know the goodies are going to be scrumptious when this sort of loveliness spills out of the parcel or rather spilled out of this:

and then see this 


I literally gave a sigh when I saw these gorgeously wrapped gifts ....all shapes and sizes! I felt like rubbing my hands together like Fagin in Oliver Twist (do you know what I mean??)
I just knew I was going to enjoy unwrapping these parcels!!

and I was right

look......

 I'm going to leave you to comment as I am quite speechless!
and this 
sparkling heart bookmarker

and buttons .... heart buttons!!
some chocolate which rapidly disappeared ....a lovely pouch....and some delicate rose soap :-)





A hanging heart!



I so heart all of this!


Heavan....I am so lucky!!!

Thank you so much PJ .....very very generous!


*************************


You may have noticed I have changed the comment settings here to registered OpenID .....I'm trying it out for the time being because I have been inundated with Annoymous comments....spam comments. I'm talking about receiving 20 to 30 a day. I'm fed up of it so I hope by changing my settings I will get rid of it!!!

and finally:


Bless his heart Sr P didn't forget!

Happy Valentine's Day


Amanda :-)

I love to receive your comments and I read all of them. Unfortunately real life does get in the way sometimes, so as much as I would like to I cannot always reply to every comment, however I do my very best to keep in touch.
