It seems that I am have been in a bit of a slump lately - just life in general was getting me down. Crafting was suffering and so was life in a few other areas. Hopefully now things will start picking up now that the weather has cooled a bit. Ah well, my intentions are good.

February also saw another birthday pass me by. It got a bit lost this year as we celebrated my father-in -laws 80th birthday just before. I'm not worried about it - I have lots of nice things coming up in the future month or so. I share my birthday with Valentine's Day - sometimes that can be a problem too - just because everybody seems to be thinking about that.
But I did join the Cookies and Cream Craft Valentine swap and Kerry was my partner. Here's the box which arrived for me

I had a little helper - he wanted to open the parcel because he says no one ever sends him mail. That was okay as I knew that what was inside was for me :).
And this is what was inside that prettily wrapped box - a gorgeous big pincusion with a Valentine's theme and birthday wishes as well. Isn't it fabulous? Thanks Kerry. You should go and see some of the other lovely pincushions she has been making.

Sadly though the postal system seems to have held up the parcel I sent to Kerry so I won't be able to show a picture of that until Kerry receives it.
Thanks again Kerry!
