Lovely Things

I was given a lovely welcome at the Chiltern's Textile and Embroidery group on Monday evening and as an added bonus I got to pick up this rather fabulous boa type scarf from a fellow degree student Viki, that I'd ordered after seeing her wear a similar one.

It is soft, cosy, warm and feels very glamorous... and I love it!

And then yesterday I received a parcel of the most gorgeous luxurious goodies from a shop called Blodwen, that I won in another Selvedge competition. I saw these at the Selvedge fair and I confess they were a little out of my price range so I was delighted to discover that I was picked as a winner... just for knowing that Mamgu is Welsh for Grandmother! They smell divine...


So even if they don't work magic on my skin at least I'll come up smelling of roses!

  8. Mmmmm, Gina, that boa is so feathery without actually being feathery!

    Congrats on winning the Selvedge prize, too. I so wish that I could get to one of their fairs eventually. (I'd love to see you as an exhibitor.)
